Buyers looking for a great house or condo have several options when it comes to searching. They can go alone, 'surf' the net, or work with a REALTOR® who can help them find what they're looking for. Here is the best way to go….
Here are some of the most common questions Home-Buyers have:
Q: Whats the best way to FIND a house in Winnipeg? Go to Open Houses? Looking thru real estate magazines? Search individual agents websites?
A: Magazines are often published once a month, or perhaps once a week. By the time a listing makes it into print, it’s most often already sold or accepting offers. Open Houses can be very hectic, and you end up ‘rubbing elbows’ with lots of other visitors. The Best Way? Work with one REALTOR® who can show you ALL the listings. Someone like, say, me for example. Watch this video.
Q: Why should I work with a REALTOR®. I can find the houses on my own!
A: FINDING them is just a small part of what real estate agents can do for you. Once you find a nice house, I can help you evaluate it, offer advice on how to structure your offer to make it more acceptable (thereby winning any possible bidding war), and I can even help you get pre-approved by a great lender. Please watch this video.
Q: My checking account is with a bank. Can’t I just go there to be pre-approved?
A: In this fast market, every buyer knows that pre-approval is required, so EVERY buyer already does that. It’s no longer sufficient just to be pre-approved, its actually more important to be pre-approved by the RIGHT lender. To find out HOW you do that, watch this video.
