Future of FSBO Business in Canada Jeopardized by Competition Bureau… - 04/16/10 01:16 PM
The successful fee-for-service models offered to the public by many FSBO (for-sale-by-owner) companies are now in jeopardy as a result of what the Competition Bureau is proposing. Here is a recent excerpt from the Financial Post: "We are not quite sure what the commissioner is trying to achieve," said Stephen Skelly, vice-president of operations with Ottawa-based National FSBO. "There is a discussion of a fee-for-service operation and that's the kind of thing FSBO businesses already provide." Mr. Skelly's worry is that if agents list property on the MLS for a one-time fee and provide no additional service, his members won't be (10 comments)

We Will Remember... - 04/06/10 01:20 AM
The peaceful society we in Canada enjoy today is only a dream to the many people in the world who live in countries torn apart by violence. This peace is possible only because it has been protected by the efforts and sacrifices of generations of Canadians over the years who have put their lives on the line.
