Why Use A Realtor When Buying A Home?

Blog by Joette Fielding | March 21st, 2016

We do the homework.jpgWhen you’re buying a home, you need pertinent facts about the house, the neighbourhood and the community.  For example, is the price too high?  Was the house ever a grow-op?  Is there convenient public transit?  Can you build a second storey?  Are you allowed to rent out the basement?

There are countless questions when it comes to buying a house, and your REALTORS know how to find the answer.  They do the homework so that you can make an informed decision – and get the best possible outcome.

Some things to consider when buying:

- Has this area ever flooded?
- Can we rent the basement out?
- Can a housing development spring up in those fields?
- Where exactly is the property line?
- Is overnight street parking legal for owners?
- How close will the new highway be?
- Can we put an addition on the house?

These and other questions are locale-dependent, and the answers aren’t so simple or immediate.  Your REALTOR can do the homework and get you the answers you need to make an informed decision.
