Chances are that you have heard about some proposed amendments being made to how real estate is handled in Canada.
If you've read about it in the paper next to the most recent Tiger Woods or Jesse James updates...consider the source.
The reality is that if you wanted someone to sell your most prized possession at a discount rate...the option has always been there. Perhaps now 4 extra people know about it.
FACT: Buyers have no reason to buy privately. There are no savings for the buyers and, in some cases, you may NOT be reading the signals as well I do and may even be buying the home from a tenant vs the owner of a house.
As for property sellers wanting more options to sell their properties...discount brokers have been around since the earliest days.
Thankfully none of my sellers have bought into the idea of selling their property as a "discount" property (similar to power of sales etc).
The most qualified buyers will always choose to work with a professional like myself and, as a result, will want access to my ViP properties whenever possible.
THESE ARE STRICTLY THE OPINIONS OF THE WRITER AND DO NOT REFLECT THOSE OF CENTURY 21 CANADA.
