Edmonton: Saving the Commissions could Cost You Thousands!

Saving the Commissions could cost you thousands

Saving the Commissions could cost you thousands

What is the largest single advantage of trying to sell your home yourself?

Saving the commissions payable.  So what is the single greatest advantage of buying a home directly from a seller or for sale by owner?  Saving the commission again. So everyone wants to save on the commissions, but who has the advantage in Edmonton- a Buyer or a Seller? Only 15% of homes currently on the market will sell within the first 90 days in Edmonton.  So clearly, a buyers market.  That being said, is the advantage on the sellers side with only one property to sell, or on the buyers side with multiple properties they could buy and the money to do so?

That’s right, the Buyer has the power.

Whether buying or selling your home, you have several decisions to make.

Should you work with a REALTOR®? Which real estate company will provide the best value? Which REALTOR® within that company will be best suited to help you through the process?

We reached out to the RE/MAX Influencers: A panel consisting of RE/MAX Sales Associates from throughout Canada. We asked them: Why should a consumer work with RE/MAX when he/she has so many options out there?

The Brand

Chances are, you would have a hard time finding someone who has never heard of “RE/MAX.” With 100,000 Sales Associates in nearly 100 countries worldwide, the RE/MAX name—along with the iconic balloon—represents a professional organization that has become an industry leader.

RE/MAX also advertises through many mediums, including: Television, print, online and physical signs such as NHL rink boards. This high level of exposure will go to work for you when listing your property. Many RE/MAX Sales Associates are also affiliated with the Children’s Miracle Network; therefore, the sale of a RE/MAX Miracle Home will help support your local children’s hospital. According to ComScore, RE/MAX Canada also leads other real estate brands with its significant traffic to remax.ca.

“In an uncertain market, consumers become less speculative. Instead, they rely on proven brands to reinforce their efforts to manage one of their most important investments. They rely on the experience and expertise that has made RE/MAX one of the most recognizable brands in the real estate world.”

Sales Associates

RE/MAX Sales Associates have the experience to get the job done in today’s market.

The vast majority of our membership are full-time agents who are experts in their local communities. They work hard and are committed to help their clients through the home buying or selling process. *RE/MAX agents sell more real estate than any other Canadian brand.

“RE/MAX is often a collection of the top REALTORS® in any given marketplace. RE/MAX also has an international network: This type of network could be where the buyer of my client’s home comes from.”

Training and Support

RE/MAX supports all of its Sales Associates with comprehensive training and ongoing support.

Our affiliates are highly skilled and educated, and they have the latest tools and technology at their fingertips. They are motivated to put this knowledge and experience to work for you!

Another 5 Star Review for this Edmonton Realtor

Another 5 Star Review for this Edmonton Realtor

Jeanine recently helped us buy our first home in Edmonton and we could not have been more pleased with the process! My partner and I contacted Jeanine initially based on the positive experience I had when I accompanied a friend to look at homes (for her) in Edmonton earlier in 2017. Jeanine came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction we had with her after that was the same. She’s the perfect balance between professionalism and complete honesty which was a real asset given we were first time home buyers.
