mississauga real estate agent gloria valvasori: Where Do Your Commission Dollars Go? - 01/23/18 07:21 AM
Commission StructureMost Sellers I encounter have no idea how the Selling Commission is structured or how it is allocated. Many consumers believe their agent's expenses are covered by their Brokerage, but in fact agents are responsible for ALL their expenses.
Here is an excerpt below from my booklet... A Real Estate Guide for Sellers .... where I explain to clients how the commission structure works.
Here is a short video explaining how commission is structured, what it covers, and how it is allocated.

mississauga real estate agent gloria valvasori: The Myths and Misconceptions About Power of Sale Properties - 01/22/18 10:01 AM
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE BUYING Over the course of my 30+ years as a real estate agent, I have been on the listing and selling side, representing buyers who wish to purchase a home listed under Power of Sale.  I sold a home a few years ago in STREETSVILLE under Power of Sale and I had many clients and perspective buyers calling.  They called because they thought they could "get a good deal" and potentially purchase the property at less than market value.
This is a misconception many people have, and this is NOT the case.  The Bank or Financial Institution selling … (2 comments)

mississauga real estate agent gloria valvasori: When Choosing A Fixer Upper Makes Cents - 01/19/18 05:58 AM

Some renovations can significantly increase the market value of a home. Others can cost more than you’ll ever get back.
So, when choosing a “fixer-upper”, look carefully at the work that needs to be done.
General painting, and bathroom or kitchen renovations typically increase the resale value of a house. “Invisible” repairs such as plumbing, electrical, or heating systems do not.
Before you buy, work with your REALTOR® to develop a market value estimate of the house you are considering as though the renovations you’re contemplating are already complete.
If the math works, go for it. Buying a “fixer-upper” can … (2 comments)

mississauga real estate agent gloria valvasori: BUYING A HOME WITH AN INGROUND POOL? - 01/16/18 05:23 AM
Buying A Home With A Pool?Are you considering purchasing a home with an in-ground pool?  Do you imagine hot, lazy afternoons, lounging by your pool with friends and family?  Become an informed buyer, do your research, and ensure your real estate agent includes the appropriate clauses to protect you from unforeseen expenses on closing.
Unlike kitchen and bath renovations, or the addition of hardwood floors and crown moulding, a pool does not necessarily add value to the home equal to the cost of the pool.  The fact is, that in most cases it adds little or no value to the home.  Some buyers … (5 comments)

mississauga real estate agent gloria valvasori: MY WAY OF SAYING "THANK YOU" TO MY CLIENTS - 01/14/18 01:59 PM
I have been selling real estate since April of 1987, a profession I love and continue to love to this day.  It is such a rewarding career, although it is a lot of work, nothing gives me more gratification than seeing how happy my clients are when their offer is accepted, or when they get the keys to their new home...

CLIENT OR CUSTOMER?The words Client and Customer seem pretty clear cut, but in real estate they mean completely different things to a Realtor®.

Closing the SaleEnsuring the Closing Goes SmoothlyThere are few things I enjoy more than saying to a client, “You’ve got the home!” That means that the seller has accepted your offer, conditions have been waived, the closing date has been set, and you’ll soon be preparing for moving day.
Just because the purchase has been made doesn’t mean my work for you stops. On the contrary. There are a myriad of other things I’ll do to ensure the process goes smoothly.
