The majority of Real Estate transactions take place with the assistance of a Calgary Real Estate agent, and for good reason. Working with a professional Real Estate agent is the most efficient means of shopping for a Calgary home and can help make the home-buying process an easy, hassle-free experience. Rob Johnstone will help you assess your wants and needs to find the perfect match between what you can afford and the home that best suits your preferences.
Committing to working with a Calgary Realtor is usually the best. There are several reasons for this: firstly, it will save you time and frustration. 90% of the homes for sale in Calgary are available through the Calgary Real Estate Board; most Calgary Realtors have access to this information. By working with several Realtors, you will be covering the same ground several times and because one Calgary Realtor will not know all the homes that you have seen, you will have multiple appointments at the same properties. The second benefit to showing loyalty to one Realtor is that your Calgary Realtor will begin to know your personal style and tastes and will then be qualified to sort out homes that will not interest you.
"For Sale" signs and newspaper ads are not always a true reflection of everything that is on the market. By networking with fellow Calgary Realtors often, homes are sold before the general public is aware. Synergy is one of the benefits of working with the top real estate company in Canada. By taking advantage of the networking within Re/Max, Rob has oftentimes sold homes before they are exposed to the general market.
Once you have found your home, Rob will discuss the different approaches to constructing the transaction in order to best protect and benefit you. Next comes the time to put it all in paper by writing an Offer to Purchase contract. Then the Offer is presented to the Home Sellers. With 30 years of experience and several negotiating courses behind him, Rob will go to work for you to arrange your best possible price and terms. The real estate costs you no more than that of a Realtor that has been recently licensed. It really is "Buyer Beware" because in Alberta, a Realtor can moonlight part-time as a Realtor and does not have to disclose to you that he/she is not a full-time professional. Be careful that you are educated on who is working for you.
A professional agent works for you and respects your opinions. He or she will not try and force you into buying a home that you are not entirely comfortable with. Rob strongly believes that his job is to supply you with the information you need to make your own decision.
Real estate laws have become increasingly complicated and ever changing. Rob keeps up-to-date with weekly sessions with an attorney.
