Navigating the complex Toronto Market
Toronto has a complex real estate market and may not be as easy to navigate as you would want, but that’s why we are here. You’ve probably heard about the bidding wars with tonnes of offers coming in on a single house, homes selling way over the asking price. Well, not to worry. You are not overpaying for these houses. You are paying market value at the end of the day, the list price is just the starting point, typically listed 5-10% under the actual market value in order to create interest and excitement around the listing. Not every house is listed this way, and only 44% of homes actually go into a multiple offer. But, if you are buying into one of the hotter neighbourhoods in Toronto, 90% of the time you will be involved in a bidding war.
This all may sound intimidating but you’ve got an experienced real estate team on your side that has been through more bidding wars and negotiating sessions than some of those other agents can shake a stick at. Your on your way!
Our first step once meeting with you is to educate you not only on the best areas of Toronto to live in but also the offer process so that you comfortable and ready to enter into the Toronto Real Estate Market. Is it time to go shopping yet?
