buyers: BEAMING BUYERS and SMILING SELLERS is what keeps us going forward! - 08/22/15 04:42 AM
Like most people, I have good days and not so good days. 
Most things are out of my control but I know how to manage my expectations.  What I focus on mainly, is attempting to conquer my impatience!   I've learned that some things will happen only in their own time.
When I lie my head down at night, I give thanks for all that occurred during my day, with an attitude of gratitude for what can only be described as "First World Problems". 
In the huge scope of things, my problems are trivial!  I am privileged to have the career that I … (17 comments)

FAQ #6 - WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DEPOSIT AND A DOWNPAYMENT?




Your Favourite Gananoque Realtor gets asked this question a lot.   Often, we forget that not everyone is familiar with the terminology we throw around.
When a Buyer decides to make an offer on a property in Ontario, his Realtor will prepare an Agreement of Purchase and Sale.  Within this document will be a section pertaining to the Deposit which reads as follows:





"DEPOSIT: Buyer submits .......................................................................................................................................... (Herewith/Upon Acceptance/as otherwise described in this Agreement) ................................................................................................................. Dollars (CDN$)....................................... by negotiable cheque payable … (2 comments)

buyers: Dear Ms Emo: Why do I have to meet you at the office first? - 01/09/11 08:08 AM
Gananoque, Ontario
Dear Ms Emo; 
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly with regard to 123 Somewhere St in Anytown.  This looks like a place I would be interested in purchasing but my time is limited.  I see no reason as to why we can't simply meet at the property rather than at your office as you have suggested.   I would like to proceed with an offer if everything is as it seems.  Let's say we meet at the property at 5pm rather than at your office at 4:30 as you requested.  Is there a problem with this?

buyers: Susan Emo's Buyers and Sellers CHOOSE Gananoque Humane Society ! - 07/26/10 02:31 PM
Gananoque, ON
As promised in my earlier blog, effective Canada Day 2010, I had selected a few local charities for the purpose of giving back to the community through my real estate business, allowing my Buyers and Sellers to feel more a part of the town.   For each closed transaction I decided to provide $150 broken down as follows:   
The first $50 to the local charity of my choice and
the second $100.00 being chosen by my clients.   
Today I was proud to provide $300.00 to our local Gananoque and District Humane Society.  Two of my transactions have closed this month here … (18 comments)

buyers: Ten Best Buyer Behavior Practices - 06/13/10 02:37 PM
Gananoque, On

My thanks to Carra for writing such a great post which will help Buyers get their perfect place. 
Ten Best Buyer Behavior Practices
Many things we read in the blogosphere inspire creative writing ideas.  I recently read a blog post about an agent who felt so abused by the actions of a buyer she thought a "Buyer Code of Ethics" should be initiated.  I too, have felt the sting of a buyer not thinking the real estate agent was a "human being" so decided to create a  Best Buyer Behavior Practice list.

buyers: Does Your Home Say to Buyers, "Honey, Stop the Car!" - 06/05/10 05:06 AM
Gananoque, On
Margaret in Maryland has written a great article and I thank her for allowing me to reblog for your benefit if you missed it the first time.  Enjoy!

What is it about the appearance of a home that makes a potential buyer say "Honey, Stop the Car... I LOVE that house!"
Your Crofton home doesn't get a second chance to make a good first impression, so let me ask... 
If you were a buyer, which of these homes would inspire a comment like that from you or your spouse?  I thought so... and potential homebuyers would probably agree.
