Selling Your House

For most people, the decision to sell their house is a result of changing personal circumstances or needs. Once that decision is made, there is a common thread that links all homeowners: the desire to get the most money possible from the sale of  their property

As a full time real estate sales professional, I strive to provide the success my clients deserve, while at the same time make the process of selling your home as simple and painless as possible. My comprehensive marketing plan and strong negotiating skills will secure a profitable sale as I work for you throughout the entire process from preparing your home for sale, negotiation of offers through to closing. I will also assist in finding you the new home that will best suit your current and future needs.

Smoking Hot Sellers Market!

Due to an unprecedented lack of homes for sale - half the seasonal average - and the huge demand from a growing buyer pool, sellers have been cashing in on dramatically increased prices they're receiving for the sale of their homes. It is more the norm now to have houses sell with multiple buyers competing with offers, and the result is houses are selling well over list price. If  you are considering selling, contact me to help you get a clear picture of how much you could expect to get for your property.

In this competitive market, buyers need to be working with an experienced agent like myself to help avoid making costly mistakes. I am often seeing buyers drastically overpaying for properties as I am working with seller's listings. The reality of the current situation is that offers for the same property can vary by tens of thousands of dollars. It great to win the the best bid and get the house you really want, however it's easy to get swept up in the moment and potentially overpay. My experience and knowledge of the market in this area will help you to avoid this type of mistake and potentially save you thousands of dollars.

Money Sense magazine ranks Brantford as the 3rd Best City To Buy Real Estate

Money Sense magazine (March 9, 2016) ranked Brantford as the #3 on their list of the Best Cities to Buy Real Estate in Canada in 2016. 
 "Hamilton, Brantford and Guelph climbed by as many as five spots since last year. All three cities have high average household incomes in common—ranging from $78,000 to just over $95,000—while unemployment ranges from 4% to 5.7%, significantly lower than the current national average of 7.2%."
 
 
Of these three cities, Brantford's average home price was ranked lowest at just under $300,000 ($293,059). The average home prices for Guelph and Hamilton were significantly higher ($378,573 and $442,493, respectively), meaning Brantford is a significantly more affordable location to enter the real estate market. Also worth noting that the 5 year price appreciation is 5.0% for Brantford.
 
Toronto ranked 15th on the list with an average home price of $622,046.

What you should expect from your REALTOR

My Experience Works for You

As owner/operator of a design/build construction company for over 20 years and having received Provincial Accreditation for Residential Design, I know and understand quality construction and design from the foundation up. 

For Sellers: This experience allows me to provide you with a significant advantage in the selling process because I am able to quickly identify potential issues before a buyer does, and recommend cost effective ways to remedy them. This prevents problems that could cause you to end up with less money for the sale of your house, or worse, no sale at all.

For Buyers: The toughest task every buyer faces is to eliminate homes from consideration that are unsuitable or have significant issues that will add substantially to the cost to remedy. Each home has its own unique character and quirks. My proven ability to recognize and differentiate minor issues from major ones means that I can assist you to make informed decisions and to negotiate a fair price for your next, or first, home purchase.
