Selling Real Estate in Calgary - Reich Law Office

When it comes to selling a house, many people are tempted to go it alone, selling the home without the help of a qualified realtor or lawyer. The problems with this scenario are numerous, since most homeowners are woefully ill-prepared when it comes to real estate law and regulations. You not only need a solid realtor, but also an experienced real estate lawyer in order to guarantee a successful sales transaction.

Why not do it yourself?

Do-it-yourself real estate sales can be quite stressful and time-consuming. The home has to be prepared for market, and then pretty much kept in ready-to-show condition at all times (which can be a challenge if you have children!). A marketing plan must also be put in place to make sure the home is seen by as many people as possible. For this reason alone, buyers are well advised to secure the talents of an experienced, full time realtor (not your cousin Jed who dabbles in selling real estate on the side). This means somebody with the training, certifications, and experience to properly move your home in the shortest possible time, allowing you to get on with your life. Don’t hesitate to ask potential realtors about their marketing plan for your property, and get the plan in writing.

Residential real estate professionals also have tools at their disposal that are not available to folks trying the do it yourself approach. They can screen potential buyers, making sure only the most qualified candidates are the ones that you spend serious time with. They also can make suggestions for improving the appearance of the property to make it appealing to the widest number of people. A good realtor will also be able to explain the real estate market in your area, what is working and what isn’t, and what buyers are looking for.

In the same vein, you want a qualified real estate lawyer in your corner for the final closing, someone who is familiar with how things are done in Calgary and throughout Alberta and can represent you effectively. The details of real estate transactions are numerous, multi leveled, and complex…..not something the average homeowner is prepared to deal with.
