Choosing the right real estate agent to handle your buying or selling transaction can be a daunting task since there are quite a few out there to choose from. It's important to have someone on your side who has knowledge of the local market, especially since real estate markets can differ so substantially from city to city.
Here in Barrie and surrounding area, a lot of our market is driven by those coming from the city, so often there are agents from the city bringing their clients through to find a home and many of those agents have also found themselves listing homes in this area. From investment opportunities here in Barrie to the close proximity we have to the city, its not wonder why so many are coming up this way.
From a sellers perspective, it is important to make sure whichever agent you choose to represent you and your property that they are marketing your property in the local area and in the Toronto area as well.l As a real estate agent, I offer this to every client because the market in Barrie and surrounding area is very desirable to those coming from the city.
From a buyer's perspective, you have to keep in mind that you will be competing with other buyers willing to offer more money with less conditions which can result in losing bidding wars.
