Why You Should Hire a Real Estate Agent

For most people, a real estate transaction is the biggest investment they will ever experience. That being said, choosing to work without a real estate agent can be a long and daunting process to take on, littered with details and nuances that the average homeowner or homebuyer will not be aware of.

Whether buying or selling your home in Toronto, using a real estate agent will help give you peace of mind that you will be getting the best return for your investment.

There are so many layers that people may forget about when buying or selling their Toronto home. Allow me to help ease your mind, keeping things simplified and organized through this emotional process. Remember, I am not just your real estate agent: I am with you, every step along the way.

“Even after the deal was finalized, we continued to receive updates and advice from Anil on how to appropriately close the transaction, and we appreciated his advice about working with the bank, home inspector, lawyer and insurance.”

Knowing the Toronto market and the current trends, real estate agents have an insider’s advantage when it comes to buying or selling property. Unlike the general public, agents constantly follow and can read the market; this is what we do for a living.

Hiring a real estate agent to do the groundwork will save buyers and sellers time, money and heartache. Let me help you free up time by delegating some of the seemingly small, yet important tasks, so the real estate transaction can be a less stressful time for you. The vast network to which real estate agents have direct access is amazing. Instead of wasting your valuable time finding an appraiser, a mortgage lender, a home inspector, a stager, a lawyer, a handyman for minor renovations or even a contractor for major renovations, I have access to a team of these people (and more) that I know and trust.

Real estate agents can give you a list of what buyers are really looking for in your Toronto home, so there are no presumptions and focus can be placed on the most important items. Agents will help get your home ready efficiently and will get your property on the real estate market faster, saving you time, money and help ease the stress and anxiety during the time of sale.

Many people who sell their own homes find it very difficult to hear the criticism and comments potential homebuyers offer during appointments or when holding an open house. A real estate agent can use these comments as constructive criticism and alter the presentation of the property accordingly.

I am not just your real estate agent. I will be at your service any time of the day to answer any questions or concerns you may have. With over 20 years of financial experience and over 25 years of experience navigating the neighbourhoods of Toronto, I am confident I can find the right home suitable to your needs.

“He listened to what we wanted, showed us a variety of places, and we ultimately chose a home that we’d seen before but thought was out of reach — Anil helped negotiate the purchase and made the transaction with the vendors friendly and smooth.”

Agents understand leverage. They know what a property is worth and they can negotiate for you, using leverage to get the best deals. Real estate agents can view a property without the emotional attachment a buyer or seller may have and can therefore detach any sentiment from the sale or purchase of a property for you.

Selling or buying a new home is a lengthy process, which can take over your life, if you let it. Let me do the work for you to make sure that your sale or purchase is successful and a stress-free transaction.
