Choosing The REALTOR® Who’s Right For You. If you’re selling or buying a home, you know it’s a process that can’t be rushed. You need time to make the right choices and decisions. After all, selling or buying a home is one of the largest and most important business transactions in which you’re likely to be involved. As a result, you’ll need to work with someone who understands your needs and wants -- someone you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. That’s why it’s important to work with a REALTOR® and to know how to go about choosing the one who’s right for you. By definition, a REALTOR®’s primary role is to bring buyers and sellers together to facilitate a sale. A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate professional who is a member of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board and therefore has access to the Multiple Listing Service ® (MLS®) run by the Board. Both terms, REALTOR® and MLS® are trademarks owned by The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Members of the local Board are also members of CREA and therefore are permitted to use these trademarks. When you work with a REALTOR® you can expect strict adherence to provincial law, as well as to a national Code of Ethics -- ensuring you’ll receive the highest level of service and integrity.

‘Open Houses’ are also a good way to meet REALTORS, especially if you’re interested in purchasing a home. You can also refer to real estate signs in your chosen area. If no name appears, call the phone number on the sign and ask to be referred to a REALTOR® in that firm. Some people mistakenly contact the real estate board for referral to a REALTOR®. A real estate board does not provide a referral service for REALTORS. The Board was created to provide services to its members. Still, the Board will confirm whether a real estate practitioner is a member, and therefore a REALTOR®. THE INTERVIEW When choosing a real estate professional, it’s a good idea to talk to two or three sales representatives from different companies to determine what types of information and experience they and their companies have to offer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re selling your home, ask those you interview about the type of marketing plan they have in mind for your home. Obviously, you’ll want to learn of their reputation and reliability. You may also want to consider asking for references from buyers or sellers with whom the REALTOR® has worked.

Real estate professionals know their markets inside-out because they inspect open houses and research all listings. As a result, they have expertise in assessing what comparable homes are selling for within any given neighbourhood.

Further, since you’ll be working closely with a REALTOR® for weeks or possibly months, it’s a good idea to choose someone who listens to what you say, asks intelligent questions and shows a genuine interest in helping you.

HOW DO I FIND A REALTOR®?

PREPARATORY WORK

There are many ways to go about finding the REALTOR® who’s right for you. First, try consulting friends, relatives and neighbours to see if they can recommend someone. You may also want to try searching through local newspaper real estate advertisements.

Keep in mind that REALTORS cannot work independently of your input. You must be willing to do some preparatory work yourself and be prepared to dedicate a certain amount of time to working with the REALTOR® you have chosen.

The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) represents over 900 REALTORS and administers the Multiple Listing Service® system north of the Malahat to the northern-most reaches of the Island. This article was provided on behalf of VIREB REALTORS for the information and benefit of consumers. For more information, visit the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s website online at www.vireb.com or call 250-390-4212.

So, before you enlist the help of a REALTOR®, you should have a clear set of objectives in mind. Be honest and open in discussing your financial situation and, if you’re buying, carefully review the features you absolutely must have in a home, versus those features you’d merely like to have. LOYALTY IS A MUST It’s also important to remain loyal to the REALTOR® you’ve chosen if he or she has earned your trust. This person will be spending a lot of time and effort on your behalf, but won’t be paid until the transaction is completed. If you’re a buyer, getting involved with several REALTORS can create unnecessary and confusing duplication of effort. In fact, buyers who deal with several REALTORS may miss out on the high level of interest and comprehensive service one is entitled to expect by working closely with a single, competent REALTOR®. COOPERATION REALLY WORKS Remember, although you’ll be working with one REALTOR®, members of the Board cooperate extensively with each other to facilitate showings and sales for the benefit of other clients and customers. So, if you see a ‘For Sale’ sign on a house in which you’re interested, simply ask the REALTOR® you’re working with to arrange an appointment to view the home. This service is, in fact, what the Multiple Listing Service® system is all about -REALTORS cooperating with REALTORS to bring buyers and sellers together to achieve their mutual goals.

1900 ASHLING ROAD, QUALICUM BEACH Live where trees are tall and air is clean. High on a hill with views of Georgia Strait and the mainland mountains. A cheery entry reflects the friendly spirit of this home by featuring a unique display wall that separates the kitchen from the hall. The Living Room, complete with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams invites you to sit by the fireplace and enjoy the warmth. The rough-hewn mantle and cedar paneling are reminiscent of a country lodge. You can dine by a picture window and enjoy the views and still be connected to the coziness of the Living Room. More than an efficient workroom, the kitchen is a real showplace too. This kitchen makes cooking simple with a place for everything and a separate pantry that would make any cook envious! Three bedrooms, including the master suite with a five piece ensuite and walk-in closet make this a home that will work for everyone. The main floor is finished with a big family room that will take you out onto your covered patio and 12 man hot tub area. The yard is beautifully landscaped with lots of area to enjoy your sports or start a garden. Upstairs you will find a big bonus room, another 5 pce bath, a big bedroom and a small office/den. You can have company and offer them a great get away right in your home. MLS#328278

4445 Island Highway

Getting Your Home Ready For Sale It’s almost time for the For Sale sign to go up, and time to make sure your home will be looking its best when the first prospective purchasers walk through the door. A clean, uncluttered house looks bigger and more inviting, so begin by packing away bulky or unused furniture and making the best use of your space. Be ruthless when you go through closets, spare rooms and cupboards. If you haven’t used that bread-making machine for a while, and if you’re not likely to need that extra set of china or cutlery in the next few weeks, pack it away. Those knick-knacks on the mantlepiece may have sentimental value to you, but they’ll just look like knick-knacks to the people who come through your home. Take a deep breath and move them out of sight. You can make a head start on packing by cleaning off bookshelves, clearing clothes, shoes, extra towels and bedding out of closets, and boxing the kids’ toys, out-of-season sports equipment and garden tools. Take a tour of your home and make a note of all those easy-to-miss spots that need a good cleaning. Wash down the walls, windows and woodwork. Scrub sinks, toilets, bathtubs and kitchen appliances until they sparkle. Clean out the cupboards under the sink, dust the tops of baseboards and wash all window coverings. The more thorough the clean-up, the easier it will be to keep your home looking its best for visits from your REALTOR® and prospective buyers.

INEXPENSIVE FIX-UPS

$399,900 including HST • Newly built 1560sqft 3 bed, 2 bath rancher on crawl. • Large open kitchen, under cabinet lighting, self close cabinets & drawers, heat pump. • Slate flooring, pot lights, large closets, vaulted dining room ceiling, double garage. • 2.43 treed acres, private, room for shop, horses or a gardeners dream veggie garden!

• Now is also the time to fix the cracked light-switch plates, broken door handles, leaky faucets and squeaky doors you’ve learned to live with for years. • Shabby kitchen cupboards and a dingy hallway will benefit from a fresh coat of paint in a neutral colour -- this is not the time to start experimenting with dramatic paint schemes. • Similarly, heavily-patterned wallpaper or brightly-coloured accent walls may tend to distract buyers from other features, or make it hard for them to imagine how their belongings will look in the room. If you can, repaint or paper the walls in a subtle colour. • It’s often worth replacing carpet or floor coverings that are in really rough shape. If the state of your kitchen floor is diminishing the impact of the whole room, perhaps inexpensive peel-and-stick tiles can improve the situation. • Ask yourself if improvements like this will make your home more saleable, and do they justify the cost.

How To Cut Years Off Your Mortgage Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the money needed for a down payment. To realize the dream of home ownership, we usually have to combine our savings with borrowed money through a financial arrangement called a mortgage.

Paying off a mortgage is usually a long-term commitment over many years. Most homeowners would like to be mortgage-free sooner. Even if you lock into a long-term mortgage with an affordable interest rate, many lenders today offer the flexibility to pay down the principal and interest faster than scheduled. To ensure you have the flexibility to cut years off your mortgage, you need to look at the options and understand them before you buy. When house hunting, ask your REALTOR® to help you calculate how much mortgage you can afford. Your REALTOR® will also be able to explain the many financial options available. Before buying, shop around and compare what different lenders (banks, trust companies and other financial institutions) have to offer. You’ll want to compare not only interest rates, but the different types of payment and prepayment options offered.

The typical mortgage Typically, mortgages are amortized over 25 years. This is the length of time it will take you to pay the principal, or amount borrowed, plus interest, off in full. Lenders provide money at a variable or set interest rate for a specific period or term, ranging anywhere from six months to 10 years. Most common is the conventional mortgage, where a lender will loan up to 75 per cent of the appraised value of the home or the purchase price, whichever is lower. The remaining 25 per cent is what the buyer contributes as a down payment. Some lenders offer highratio mortgages, which require only 10 per cent down if a buyer qualifies. Governmentassisted mortgages enable eligible buyers to borrow up to 95 per cent of the value of a home.

Despite prepayment privileges in many cases, most mortgages are “closed”. This means they can’t be paid off in full without penalty until they mature at the end of their term. “Open” mortgages can be paid off at any time without penalty, but they usually bear a higher interest rate. Still, there are other ways of paying that mortgage off faster, without paying a high price.

PRESTIGIOUS MORNINGSTAR HOME 1240 Prestwick

Get the best interest rate Interest rates can make a huge difference on payments. Study the market. If rates are falling, take out a short term and lock into a longer term when rates have fallen even more. If rates are rising, lock in for a longer term. If the rates keep fluctuating, take advantage of options offered by lenders such as short-term convertible mortgages, where you can lock into a fixed rate at any time; or variable rate mortgages, where rates change along with market fluctuations. The key is to keep your payments as low as possible, so that you can take advantage of other options such as double-up payments and annual lump sum payments. Shorten the amortization period The average amortization period is 25 years, but you can arrange for a shorter period. The shorter the period, the larger your payments, but the more you save on interest and the long-term cost of your loan. This is a great idea when interest rates are low and you can afford larger monthly payments. Accelerate your payments Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the money needed for a down payment. To realize the dream of home ownership, we usually have to combine our savings with borrowed money through a financial arrangement called a mortgage. Double-up payments Some lenders allow you to make additional payments against your mortgage balance (up to the equivalent of a full monthly payment) occasionally, or even every payment date. The extra payment is directly applied to your mortgage principal to reduce the total balance. Making the equivalent of just two additional monthly payments a year can cut years off your mortgage. Lump sum payments Some lenders allow you to prepay a one-time lump sum each calendar year. This lump sum, along with other annual pre-payment privileges, generally does not exceed 10 to 20 per cent of the original principal amount of the mortgage. Once again, the money goes directly to reducing your principal. However, when the term of your mortgage is up, most lenders will allow you to make any size repayment at no extra charge.

Annual payment increase If you feel you can afford slightly higher payments, many lenders today allow you to boost your regular mortgage payments once each year throughout the term of your mortgage and to apply that increase directly to reduce your principal. By increasing your payments by as little as $15.00 or $20.00 per month, you can also cut years off your mortgage. Re-Finance your mortgage If you have a fixed, closed, long-term mortgage and rates have fallen more than two per cent, you may want to re-finance the loan to get the better rate. The cost of re-financing can be very high. To discharge your closed mortgage, you with either have to pay three months’ interest penalty or an “interest differential” which can cost considerably more. Calculate carefully and seek expert advice before re-financing, or you could end up paying more than if you stayed the course on your current rate.
