Your Home Your Real Estate Could you sell your own home?

Your home has been cleaned, freshly painted and you are ready to put it on the market. Could you sell it by yourself? No doubt you could, but when you consider all aspects of the selling process, chances are you will choose to use the services of a REALTOR® — a licensed, trained professional who has the knowledge and skills to ensure you get the best possible price and that the selling process goes as smoothly as possible. Frequently, people who attempt to sell their home without the help of a REALTOR® do so in hopes of saving the commission or fee. There is a good chance, however, that such an approach will not pay off as potential buyers will often submit lower offers in such cases. In addition, without the help of a REALTOR® and access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) it will likely take significantly longer to sell your home. The MLS® is best described as a co-operative marketing system to ensure maximum exposure of properties for sale. Fundamentally, it is a central registry of properties used by REALTORS® to match buyers with properties for sale. Before attempting to sell your own home, ask yourself the following questions: 1.

Do you have sufficient knowledge to determine the price range for your home? Are you aware of changing market conditions and of recent sales of similar homes in your area?


Do you have the skills and resources to advertise and market your home effectively?


Do you know what types of financing are available? Are you informed about various financing methods?


Do you have a network of contacts to produce potential buyers and are you able to screen out unqualified prospects — people who are just curious? Are you comfortable inviting strangers into your home at 9 pm because they saw your sign?


Are you available seven days a week to show your home? (Buyers will expect you to be available at their convenience, not yours.)


Do you have good negotiating skills? Are you comfortable haggling face-to-face over the price? Will you be ready to reveal known defects of your home and are you familiar with your legal obligations in this regard?


Can you write a legally binding contract? Do you have offer forms readily available? Do you have a lawyer to advise you on essential terms that must be in the contract?


Can you close a sale? Are you familiar with the many steps required after an offer has been accepted?

If you can confidently answer “yes” to all these questions, you probably could sell your own home. Most homeowners, however, recognize the expertise of REALTORS® who have the training and ongoing education to handle the many complex details of a home sale. Check the Victoria Real Estate Board’s website ( for a full list of local REALTORS®. For our complete consumer resource library, please visit

Real Estate Victoria


DON’T FORGET “CLOSING COSTS” WHEN BUYING A HOME Despite today’s attractive mortgage rates and wide selection of affordable homes from which to choose, you should keep in mind “closing costs” in addition to your down payment for that dream home. These various charges can add up and for the most part they are all legally required payments in buying a property. These payments include: * Legal fees: since a lawyer or notary public is an essential part of your home-buying team, the work provided involves legal fees. Most legal fees include searching the title of a property, arranging a property survey if necessary, and handling other disbursements as required. * Mortgage insurance and application fee: for any high ratio mortgage, which is any mortgage in which 75 per cent or more of the house’s purchase price is covered by the mortgage, the lender requires mortgage insurance.

BARGAIN HUNTERS ONLY! Large 2 bed 2 bath condo $219,900 2 cats ok, no rentals 4 bed 1 bath, suite potential $469,900 Close to Camosun. 3 bed 1 bath rancher, near Uptown $428,888 You will see this is VALUE!!!

* Home inspection: a professional home inspector knows what to look for and can confirm or add to the information you have gleaned from the REALTOR or your inspection. * Property transfer tax: this provincial tax is payable at the rate of one per cent on the first $200,000 of the purchase price and two percent on the balance. * GST: GST is payable to some degree on the purchase price on all new homes, although partial rebates are available on the purchase of most homes. A resale residential home is usually exempt from GST. * Extra charges: you may also be required to pay the costs of such things as heating oil in the tank, or other costs incurred by the seller, but included with the house, prior to the closing day. * Hook-ups: there may be hook-up charges required for appliances and services such as telephone, TV cable, hydro and other utilities. * Moving costs: don’t forget the basic costs involved in moving from your old place into your new home, particularly if you use a professional moving company. A REALTOR can explain further details on closing costs — just remember to add them to your financial plan when saving to buy a home.

* Mortgage broker’s fee: Consumers may be charged a fee by a lender or mortgage broker for setting up a mortgage when income or credit issues become more sensitive to the approval process. In some cases the fee may be included with the legal fees if your lawyer arranges the mortgage, or included in the lender’s fee if you deal directly with a lender such as a bank. * Property insurance: this insurance covers the replacement value of your home and its contents. Most mortgage lenders will require proof that you have this insurance before processing a mortgage.
