On Sunday October 24th I heard the news – Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) ratified an agreement that is meant to offer sellers some cost saving options. This of course is dependant on individual Realtors progressiveness and willingness to make changes to the way they do business.
In my search to find a Realtor to list our house through the MLS I have been turned down by local Realtors. The reasons varied but the bottom line was based on either the fear of their brokers or their own fear of change. I totally understand as the idea of a flat fee paid to post a listing on Realtor.ca is totally new. Who wants to be the first…right.
Pick me, I want to be the first and I am. We listed with a company out of Langley BC called http://www.PricesmartRealty.com/ since yesterday we have been listed at http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetails.aspx?propertyId=10083813&PidKey=1507495599 check it out. One of the strategies in listing for a flat fee is the ability to offer a higher commission to the selling Realtor therefore (hopefully) landmarking our listing as a must see. I will keep you posted ….
