Ensure wide sales exposure by using the MLS

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a co-operative marketing system that maximizes exposure of properties for sale. It is a central registry of properties used by realtors to match buyers with properties for sale. Most homes sold in Canada are sold via the MLS systems operated by real estate boards across the country. The MLS system includes a sophisticated computer database of properties indexed by price, location, type of home, number of bedrooms, amenities and so forth. The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) MLS maintains information on between 4,800-7,000 active listings of property for sale on the Island, and typically receives 77 new listings every day. Listings range from undeveloped lots to business opportunities or special properties. Listings are updated throughout the day.

Why does it work? The strength of the MLS system rests in the quality and accuracy of the information. Government, economists, financialinstitutions, appraisers and others all rely on MLS data. This is because realtors who submit the listing information, and MLS staff at real estate boards who conduct quality control, are trained and educated in the complexities of real estate. Realtors know how to describe a property accurately and what information must be disclosed in an MLS listing. For instance, if there is a restriction on the use of a property, something called an easement, this information must appear in the MLS listing. Also, the MLS connects buyers and sellers. If the MLS system did not exist, sellers would have to choose an individual real estate brokerage to list their home and only that brokerage would have the information about it and the ability to show and sell it. If the MLS system did not exist, buyers would have to go from realtor to realtor to view the listings of each individual brokerage. Many alternate systems and services exist to buy and sell homes and they all compete for customers. The MLS is the realtor option. How does MLS benefit consumers? A large part of the realtors’ job lies in finding properties that meet a buyer’s needs. Using the MLS, a realtor can search the database for homes that suit budgets, location preferences and family requirements, and quickly put together a short list of suitable homes. This way a buyer can decide what home they want to see, what their options are and what types of properties the market has to offer. For sellers, the MLS, matches your property with as many qualified, motivated buyers as possible. The MLS exposes your property to people most likely to purchase it and makes sure you won’t waste your time showing your home to those who are not truly interested. When you make the decision to sell ensure you ask your realtor about an MLS listing. The MLS will ensure wide exposure of your home to a broad range of interested people. What about REALTOR.ca? The public website www.realtor.ca is not the MLS system. Local MLS systems are owned and operated by local real estate boards, for use by realtors. Realtor.ca is an advertising vehicle that gives consumers direct access to information about MLS listings. The website is provided by realtors across Canada to help market properties on behalf of their clients. The home listing information on www.realtor.ca streams from the MLS but does not contain the full collection of information on the system. This article was prepared by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board“An Association of Realtors�, for the information and benefit of consumers.

How to review an offer to purchase furniture because of a short closing or face the prospect of carrying two properties for a couple of extra months because of an unusually long closing? Financing: Financing also has a great impact on the offer. For example, if you have to discharge existing debts and mortgages against the property, be sure to verify whether you will have to pay early discharge fees. In the offer, the buyer may also request that you take back a mortgage. If you are retired and you are trading down to something smaller, you may want to take back a mortgage and enjoy the resulting income. On the other hand, if you are trading up, you may not be interested in this option because you may need the funds for a bigger down payment. Conditions: Conditions on financing are generally quite short and, as a seller, you will want to know if the buyers will be able to get the necessary financing before you accept their offer. You may be better off with an offer that is slightly less in price but has fewer restrictive conditions. Items included in the sale: Buyers may wish to include certain chattels in the sale of your home -- like the antique crystal chandelier in the dining room, or the custom-made bookcase that fits perfectly between the living room windows. You may, however, have formed an emotional attachment to these items and be somewhat reluctant to include them in the transaction. If there are items you do not want included in the sale, it might be a good idea to remove them from sight before you put your home on the market.

If you have ever sold a home before, you know there is a lot more to an offer to purchase than merely the price the buyer is willing to pay. Other important factors that must be weighed carefully include a suitable closing date, financing, conditions and items which are to be included in the sale. It is a good idea to discuss all of these points with your REALTOR®. Closing Date: The closing date is one of the most important things to consider. Is it going to involve extra cost to you to have to move on a particular date? Are you going to have to store your

about two programs that are part of its Community Care Program. Have you seen the sign toppers that say Miracle Home? A Miracle Home is a property where the RE/MAX realtor involved with the listing or sale of that property donates a portion of their commission income to the Children’s Miracle Network for the benefit of the children’s hospital that serves his/her community. Homes, bare land, condominiums and even businesses that are sold by RE/MAX First agents all are included. RE/MAX First Realty is proud to be what the Children's Miracle Network calls a Miracle Office. A Miracle office is a RE/MAX office where every agent in the office has committed to making a contribution to the children’s hospital in their area from every sale or listing when it is sold. Since RE/MAX First Realty opened its doors, it has always been a Miracle Office. Its support has helped both the B.C. Children’s Hospital and the pediatric wing at Nanaimo General Hospital through these contributions – 100 per cent of what is raised here raise stays in B.C., and in the local area. ReMax First Realty is also proud of its bursary program for graduating high school students. Every year, RE/MAX First Realty sales associates have donated a $1,000 scholarship/ bursary for both Ballenas and Kwalikum secondary schools. Applications and other information are available through Ballenas and Kwalikum schools' counseling departments. These local bursaries are in addition to the Quest for Excellence Program that RE/MAX Western Canada provides 16 Bursaries of $1,000 each for students from the four western provinces and the Yukon Territory. The deadline for The Quest for Excllence bursaries for the 2012/2013 school year is March 11, 2013. Current Grade 12

students are encouraged to enter online at remax-western. ca/quest-excellence and younger students can watch for future year announcements. For more information about the Community Care Program, stop by the RE/MAX First Realty office in Wembley Mall or call 250-248-1071.
