Downsizing to a smaller home, or selling the family home, can be an emotional experience, especially if you’ve been out of the real estate market for a long time. And much has changed in the real estate world in recent years. There’s no shortage of information on the Internet, but much of it focuses on market trends and how to get the best price. You also need information about your rights and responsibilities as a buyer or seller. How do you ensure you are protected?
Fortunately, the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) is here to help. We work to protect people just like you and enforce the rules that real estate professionals in Ontario must follow. That means we can offer buyers and sellers impartial advice on how to protect themselves and ask the right questions before making one of the most important financial commitments of your life.
