My buyers were looking for a specific property, a move-in ready bungalow within walking distance to Uptown Waterloo. I searched MLS every day for the perfect home and showed them a few great options, but nothing felt quite right. Then, one day I ran across a gorgeous home on Kijiji of all places. The same day, I called the seller directly and negotiated my commission, got a contract signed with him, and pre-viewed the property. The next day I showed my sellers and we put an offer together. After many phone calls with the seller, we finally had an accepted conditonal offer. The following morning, we did a home inspection, and the morning after that, we had a firm deal. My buyer says "this was quick...all in about 48 stressful hours", but it was worth it. Had it not been done this quickly, the house would have been sold to someone else for more money. Working with a Realtor has many benefits!!
