Everything You Wanted to Know About Real Estate but were Afraid to Ask!
1.) I'm thinking of moving to Chilliwack? I don't know a lot about the area can you tell me a little about it?
Yes! I've lived in Chilliwack for 10 years now ~ so I've put together some information just for you! Check out this post: Welcome to Chilliwack Info Package - Relocate or Retire in Chilliwack, B.C.

3.) I'm really not sure how much I can afford though ~ how can I find out?
It's smart of you to ask that question first! So often people wait to find their perfect home - only to find out that it's not in their price range! Take a look at this post ~ I think it will help~
4.) Should I get a Realtor to work for me first - or should I just call the Realtor on the Sign?

5.) I thought it might be a good idea to start by looking at Open Houses. Is there anything I should know about that?
If you're working with an agent - let them know you'd like to go through some open houses - if you'll be doing it alone - let them know which ones you'll be looking at so they can let the Listing agent know. Make sure you let the listing agent know that you're working with a Realtor - and give them one of their business cards.

8.) How exactly do Realtors get paid? Why do they all charge different fees? Why Shouldn't I hire the Realtor with the Lowest Fees?

9.) I'm told I'm going to have to pay a Property Tax on the Property I end up Purchasing.....how is that calculated?
I knew you were going to ask that! Well here goes!
10.) What about a Site Survey - do I need one?
Well here's something to consider...
11.) I'm thinking of selling my house - since the papers all say inventory is low and it's now a Seller's Market. I should price high after all, you can always come down - but you can't go up! Right?
I'll be gentle with you :-) - read this!
12.) But you know the newspapers and all those real estate papers and evening news ~ well they're always talking about median and average prices? What the heck are they talking about?

Well....you're almost Home Free - just a couple more things!
O.k. we don't want to leave that at 13 so I'm inviting you to ask more questions ! This is just a 'dent' on some of the questions I've had asked in the past. You know the saying - there's no such thing as a stupid question? :-) What we do day after day - is second nature to us Realtors - but new to you. We may not know what you don't know!
