Based on what is depicted on mainstream TV shows like Million Dollar Listing, one might think the job of a real estate broker consists of driving around town showing properties, doing brokers’ caravans, all the while sipping on champagne, eating caviar, and engaging clients with an extroverted over the top personality.
Although these activities are not mutually exclusive, they don’t really satisfy the customer’s bottom-line. If you ever wondered what real estate brokers really do for their clients, here is a breakdown.
Combined with the offer to purchase, the bank’s pre-approval is a powerful tool to show the strength of your proposal. This serves as proof to the seller, in writing, that you are solvent and will be able to follow through with the financing.
For many, becoming the owner of a single family home in Montreal is an unrealistic goal. In fact, the exponential rise in prices in the metropolitan area over the past years has forced a number of buyers to abandon their dream of being able to one day combine family and urban life. Recently, however, thanks to the revitalization in the less central neighbourhoods, this scenario has started to change!
A Prosperous Industrial Past
The Pointe-Saint-Charles neighbourhood has a fascinating history. The start of its development dates back to the beginning of the 19th century, with the building of several maritime canals, including the Lachine Canal. This last project, which allows the circumventing of the Lachine rapids, announces an even more ambitious one: the St. Lawrence Seaway, which will offer unmatched access to North American lands and the Great Lakes.
Determining the right selling price for your property is quite a challenge: as an owner, you may not make an objective assessment of your property. Do not forget that the listed price of a property is of capital importance! Too high a price will keep potential buyers away, and if it remains too long on the market, it could suggest major problems related to the state of your home.
