Why You Should Always Use A Local Expert
Seasonal Shift Underway - Brantford, Paris, and Brant County Real Estate Report - October 2019
When it comes to selling your homey should always use a local real estate expert - wherever you live. Real estate markets are hyper-local, and to get the best advice, you need a Realtor who has experience in your specific market.
An experienced, local Realtor will know what the buyers are looking for specifically in your community and can market your home directly to them. I local Realtor not only is selling the house but is also selling the community they too love and call home; this is especially important when attracting out of town buyers.

The market is changing, but not in a typical way. As we head into the colder weather, there is a feeling that there is a new season coming, the beginning of settling into winter, holidays and family time.
The market heading into fall is showing some interesting trends. Our realtors are still getting an abundance of showings, and we are again seeing properties sell for above asking in competition with multiple offers.

Advice For First-Time Home Buyers
The MLS (or 'multiple listing service'') is much more than just a database or a website. It'sIt's an agreement between all Realtors to work together to sell your home. That's what makes it so powerful.
Here's how it works. When you hire a Realtor to sell your home, you will negotiate a fee directly with that Realtor and their brokerage. To load your home onto the MLS, it must also have a "co-operating" fee advertised - only Realtors can see this on the system. It's essential to understand what co-operating fee will be and if it's competitive in the local market.

High Demand For Homes Continuess
Brantford has become a top city for real estate investors looking to capitalize on the active local market. Let us show you the math behind a successful flip project to help you maximize your profits at each step and win big! A successful flip project is all about math. Here is the basic equation of a flip: Profit = Sale Price - Purchase Price - Renovations - Costs
To maximize the profits we need to: Buy the home for as low as we can, sell the home for as high as we can, be as efficient as possible with renovations, and have a good plan and stick to it in order to keep all of our costs in check
Let’s go deeper into each part of the equation to learn how to win:
The overall real estate market is very healthy and continues to reward local homeowners. Demand for properties continues to be higher than last year. The number of homes listed for sale is dropping quickly, causing inventory to fall also. Approximately a quarter of all properties sold over their asking price. We expect aggressive conditions to continue through September and October.
