Brain Teasing Question for Buyers

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Realty One Inc., Brokerage

Are you looking for a condo/townhouse/semi or detached home? Here is a question for all you buyers...What costs you nothing but can save you thousands of dollars?

Before I give you the answer, let me tell you a little story.

Early in my career, I was showing some condos to a lady for almost one month (with no Buyer Represention Agreement because she did not want to be tied to an Agent).  One day, out of the blue, she called and said she bought a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) Condo and negotiated 10,000 off the asking price.  She wanted to know if she got a "good deal".  

A good deal???  The FSBO had over-inflated the asking price but led her believe it was "priced right".  She had no idea of the value of the units in this particular building and even though she negotiated ten thousand off the asking price, she still paid approximately $15,000 more than a similar unit. 

The moral to this story and the answer to the brain-teasing question...
A Buyer Representation Agreement costs the Buyer nothing but can save them thousands.


If you're looking for a great deal on the purchase of your property in Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan, Caledon, Oakville, or the Greater Toronto Area, please give me a call.
I'm here to help you.
