If you are a Real Estate Investor who has the knowledge and experience in dealing with real estate processes, transactions, regulations, and legalities, you may not need professional help to buy or sell a property. But if that's not your forte, and are debating on using Realtors in Calgary AB, here are some facts that can help you make the right decision.
Education and Experience - Realtors can only be licensed after they take certain real estate educational courses and pass the exam. They also must do a certain number of educational hours each year to keep that license. These laws keep them up-to-date on new laws and regulations regarding the sale or purchase of a home or property. Their education is the main reason you can put your trust in them.
Experience is one of the Realtors’ most valuable asset; one you should leverage during your association. They deal with many types of people, properties, and transactions, and know how to avoid potential problems. Realtors in Calgary know the areas they service, they know the market trends, the prices, and all the other pros and cons of Calgary’s neighborhoods.
Avoid The Unexpected
In most cases the price of a property is clear and upfront, but occasionally there are properties out there with not so obvious expenses. Consequently, experienced Realtors should be aware of these expenses and bring them to your attention.
Some neighborhoods have a Homeowners Association that may charge annual fees. Also, most townhomes have management companies or associations that ongoing fees are to be paid to. Even though these expenses may cover the property’s maintenance, it’s important to be aware them before considering a purchase of such property.
Contingencies are certain conditions that are very specific that more often than not you want in your contract. For example, you may want the closing to be dependent on a house inspection report, or you the closing to depend on the owner giving you a 60-day period before moving in. Talk to your Realtor about possible contingencies you may need in your contract -- he/she will know exactly how to get them into the contract and ensure they are accepted by the other party.
Once an offer has been accepted by the seller, a title report must be ordered. The title report reveals liens, encroachments, easements and anything else recorded against the property for sale. Liens against the property are shown as “exceptions” to title insurance.
