ANSWERS TO COMMON REAL ESTATE QUESTIONS

This is a tough question but i can list some factors which can affect how long it will take to sell. Keep in mind though, this is why we are real estate professionals, experts at selling your home in the shortest time, best terms, highest price and least amount of stress!

  • The current market conditions can affect how long your home stays on the market. Our presentation always includes an analysis of your competition and current market conditions.
  • Our marketing plans include decluttering, fix-ups if needed, possibly painting & home staging. I often say, ‘nice homes sell fast in any market’. The work you put into the presentation of your home can affect how fast your home sells. We do understand there are times when a home-seller has limited control of presentation. An example would be a tenanted property. Even in these cases we have suggestions to work with the tenants to improve the presentation.
  • Pricing is an important factor. Our pricing strategy is essential to the success of your sale. This is often overlooked, but shouldn’t be. Many home-sellers think they need to overprice their home to leave room for negotiation. In our opinion, this style of pricing can often have lead to a problematic sale. In our article questions to ask your realtor, we talk in more detail about pricing strategies.
  • Some homes are harder to sell based on the area, price category, type of property etc. An example, the most expensive, high-end home in East Vancouver will be more difficult to sell than an average home. There’s a smaller market for luxury houses, especially in an area which is not usually considered for super-luxury.
  • Access. If the seller is limiting our days/times we can show potential buyers, it may take longer to sell. We understand it’s difficult to clean and prepare for showings. Selling is hard work for the homeowner too, but you need to put in the effort.

If we’re talking about the general market, it’s difficult to time the peak of the market during a cycle. Also, if you’re selling and then buying another home, this should be less of a concern. If you’re selling in a low market, you will also be purchasing in a low market, and vis versa.

I do have some comments about typical yearly rhythms. We find the market most busy mid-January to mid-June. The Vancouver real estate market is usually a bit slower in the summer. Homes are slightly harder to sell during the hot summer months. By mid-September the market is once again active. A strong market will remain until end of November. Every year is a bit different but what i’ve described is the typical year.

I’ve personally lived in a number of Eastside communities. Over the years i’ve lived in Collingwood, Cedar Cottage area, Main Street and Strathcona. We’ve helped clients buy and sell around 1000 homes in our career. On a daily basis we are marketing and showing properties all over East Vancouver. I can confidently say we know all the neighbourhoods quite well. Whether you have a home in Killarney, Cedar Cottage, Renfrew-Collingwood, Mount Pleasant, Hastings-Sunrise, or any other East Vancouver neighbourhood, we’re the right agents to market your property.

The Real Estate Board will not accept a listing contract less than 60 days. For this reason our contracts are at least two months in length. It’s not often we reach the expiry date. Most homes we market are sold or under contract well before end of contract.

New clients, who have not worked with us before are sometimes concerned about being locked into a contract. Please know, we have never held anyone to a contract who no longer wishes to sell. Sometimes an owner changes their mind about selling their home. Possibly they decide to rent out their property, or sell to a family member. To this date, we have not received a request to cancel due to dissatisfaction with our service.

Realtor commission in British Columbia is not fixed. Real estate professionals are free to offer different rates. Our personal rate is 7% on the first 100k and 2.5% on the remaining balance. This is inclusive of buyer agent commissions and costs of marketing your home. Keep in mind there is G.S.T. payable on commissions. Read our article about real estate commission in BC for more details on the topic.

We are open to discuss money and commissions but there are some important things to keep in mind. Rates include commissions for the agent representing the buyer, your marketing and various other expenses. We’re transparent about our fees and costs. In B.C., it’s now mandated for agents to provide a detailed breakdown of real estate commissions based upon a specific offer received.

Choosing an agent based on the lowest commissions can be problematic in my opinion. I feel it’s more important to understand the marketing strategy, quality of media, professionalism, experience, negotiation style, among many other factors. What’s the use of saving a couple thousand in commissions if your marketing is executed poorly, leading to negotiating your sale price down 50k or more. On the flip side, you should feel value for the commission you pay.
