here are many factors to consider when selecting a neighborhood that is right for you. Think about the location in terms of commute time to work, distance from leisure-time activities, and proximity to shopping, schools or any other places you frequent. You may think of other factors that are important to you. It’s best to write them all down. SCOUT OUT THE NEIGHBOURHOOD! • It is important that you scout the neighborhood in person. • Talk to people who live there. • Drive through the entire area at different times of the day, during the week, and on weekends. • Look carefully at how well other homes in the area are being maintained—are they painted; are the yards well cared for; are parked cars in good condition? NEIGHBORHOOD FACTORS TO CONSIDER • Look for things such as access to major thoroughfares, highways, and shopping. • Listen for noise created by commerce, roads, railways, public areas, schools, etc. • Smell the air for nearby industry or agriculture. • Check with local civic, police, fire, and school officials to find information about the area. • Research environmental topics such as soil and water quality, as well as floodplain implications. • Study traffic patterns around the area at different times of the day and measure drive time from the area to work. • Is the neighborhood near parks, places of religious worship, recreation centers, shopping, theaters, restaurants, public transportation, schools, etc.? • Does the neighborhood have a Homeowner’s Association?

Do I really need a realtor to sell my home?

M

any people who try to sell their own home end up using a realtor in the end anyway. Before anybody decides to fly solo through this complex, time consuming and financially perilous process, they should consider these questions. Will you really “save” the real estate commission?

Do you have the time?

Do you know the market well enough to get the most for your home? Lacking years of experience, the average doit-yourselfer is merely guessing at their listing price. Often they set the price too low and miss out on thousands of dollars, or they price their home too high and drive away willing buyers. Do you have the negotiation skills to keep a deal on track? When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-to-buyer deals often end in disaster. Realtors keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers.

2005

22.35 flat acreage with visibility from Hwy 404 with an exit less than 2 km away on Green Lane Corridor. East Gwillimbury is a growing vibrant community, within 45 mins. to downtown Toronto. At present there are established subdivisions with many more starting. Situated just north of Newmarket, this piece offers a great location for an office building with excellent frontage on Woodbine Ave., across from the Shawneeki Golf Course. Schools, shopping, parks, Lake Simcoe and Southlake Regional Health Centre all within minutes of this piece. Excellent opportunity to have your business showcased in this thriving community with this PRIME Commercial Development piece.

How many potential buyers will you reach?

Promoting a home is a full time job, and you may already have one. Will you be able to take calls at any time? How about screening the callers to figure out if they’re suitable candidates? Not everybody who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell?

Local Resident for 33 Years 2011

When buyers see a home for sale ‘by the owner’, they see a bargain. They imagine the realtor’s fee going into their pocket, not yours.

Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. How will you promote your home? Will you write your own ads? How will you use the Internet? MLS® and the corresponding web site www. realtor.ca have changed the way people search for homes, and it’s hard to court buyers without it.
