The broker fulfills the crucial duty of guiding would-be buyers professionally
Aside from ensuring that a sale goes smoothly, the broker fulfills the crucial duty of guiding would-be buyers through Canada’s complex and rapidly-changing housing market in the first place.
As discussed by the Guelph Mercury staff in a recent piece published on their website, a real estate broker is uniquely positioned to assist “with all the details, including buying rules and the best neighbourhoods to choose in her key markets.”
The piece noted that an intimate knowledge of the industry is the best thing that a housing professional can bring to the table.
“[A broker] can help potential buyers … make the most of the buying experience when moving to the country by answering questions such as which features [are needed] nearby and how many family members plan to live in the property,” Guelph Mercury wrote. “There are some properties that already have separate living spaces set up, but you’ll need to consider the rules of each region about adding separate dwellings for others.”
Aside from familiarity with existing regulations and tax laws, a real estate professional can navigate clients to the exact property that they need.
“[A broker] can collect all of your information and help you find a home that fits the description of what you’re looking for, and within the amount of money you have to spend,” the article said. “If you’re new to Canada and buying a home, [he or she] can help you break down any barriers that are standing in your way of becoming a homeowner.”
