Conventional wisdom tells us that buying a house may be one of the most important financial decision you’ll ever make. Whether it’s the purchase of your first home or selling a house to upgrade or downsize as your needs change, we all want to know that we’re making the best decisions possible to create optimal dividends – in both quality of life as well as the financial bottom line. So how do we step forward with confidence in an industry that is sometimes uncertain and know that we are doing the right thing?
The real estate industry is an interesting one as housing markets are a topic of great speculation by industry analysts. The challenge with those educated guesses, though, is that they don’t always get it right and as consumers, knowing when to buy or sell becomes a strategic waiting game. An external influence such as the downturn of Alberta’s oil industry was expected to have a crushing impact on Edmonton real estate, but that hasn’t been the case. Those looking to buy a house may have waited for the promised price de-escalation that simply never materialized.
When buying a home, there are a number of steps that you can take to purchase with confidence. Ensuring the certainty of your investment requires more than just a home inspection to confirm that the property is up to code and structurally sound. You also want to assess the market and ensure that you’re getting the best price possible compared to other homes with similar amenities. This is information that you can seek out on your own, but this is also the best time to enlist the assistance of an industry professional like SellerInvite to assist in that intensive research. While a home inspector ensures that you won’t find yourself facing costly surprises once you hold the deed in your hand, our team works with you to address other factors which can otherwise contribute to buyer’s remorse.
When selling a home, your focus is on yielding the greatest dividend possible with as few days as possible on the market. You want to be confident that your asking price is competitive with other current listings to attract interest, but you also don’t want to under-value your property either. This is where SellerInvite can best assist. Not only can we offer our expertise to ensure that your property is effectively appraised, we can also assist with the marketing to get your opportunity in front of the buyers you’re looking for. Further, with SellerInvite’s exclusive pricing options, you can be assured that you are saving money on commission fees that often take a generous bite of your final sale price.
