How Your Agent Can Help

How Your Real Estate Agent Can Help

Think of your sales representative like a wilderness guide. Just as the wilderness guide keeps you on the right path and away from danger on a backwoods adventure, your real estate agent expertly navigates you through the complicated areas when buying a home and steers you clear of costly pitfalls.

In order to practice real estate, all agents must be licensed and complete courses on topics relevant to your home search and transaction. In addition to holding a valid real estate license, all Royal LePage Landmart agents are also REALTORS®. The term REALTOR ® is a trademark that identifies a licensed real estate agent as a member of The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). All REALTORS ® make a pledge to adhere to a strict code of ethics and standards.  

A real estate agent or REALTOR ® is an expert on all things real estate in your neighbourhood. A good agent saves you time and money. She or he knows your community, knows what is important when buying a new house, and knows all the intricacies of the process, from finding a home, to negotiating a price and closing the deal.

How Your Real Estate Agent Will Help You Find Your Dream Home

A Royal LePage agent will do the following:

- Screen the available houses in your neighbourhood to make sure that the houses you look at fit your budget and your requirements.
- Give you important information on the local housing market and price trends, taxes, utility costs, services and amenities.
- Guide you through the open house viewing process, showing you features you may not have noticed and problems you may not have spotted.
- Advise you about your legal and financial options.
- Recommend expert help when needed, such as the services of a home appraiser, home inspector, real estate lawyer or contractor.
- Manage your purchase offer and counter offers, and use his or her skills and experience as a negotiator to make sure you get the best deal possible on your new house.

We think you'll agree that Royal LePage Landmart sales representatives are the real estate agents of choice – motivated, experienced and dedicated to the highest level of service in the Canadian real estate industry.

Think back to high school economics. Remember those lessons on the laws of supply and demand, and how you swore you’d never need to know that stuff in the real world? Well, if you’re looking to buy a house, it could come in handy.

The concept is a simple one, but it teaches a valuable lesson in how housing market conditions affect price, and how understanding the market can affect your buying strategy.

In a nutshell, when there are more homes for sale than there are potential buyers, house prices drop. When there are fewer houses on the market than there are buyers, house prices will climb. When the number of homes on the market is roughly equal to the number of buyers, it’s called a balanced market.

Market conditions can vary widely across the nation, across provinces and even across neighbourhoods. The demand for housing in a given locale may be influenced by any number of factors. Swings in the economy (both national and local), the availability of property (supply), and the fickle nature of consumer trends can determine if a given neighbourhood is hot or not.

As an expert on your local real estate market, a Royal LePage agent is an excellent place to start understanding the state of your local market. You may also want to consult the Royal LePage Survey of Canadian House Prices. This is a quarterly report geared to help you learn more about housing price trends in your area as well as housing markets across the country.

Here is a quick rundown on how the changing housing market can impact buying and selling behaviours:
