Benefits of Having a Realtor Working for You as a Buyer
Buying a home involves hours, days, and often weeks of methodical searching – that is, it does if you want to ensure you find the best home for you and your family. Many prospective home buyers conduct their search in their free time, which isn’t always ideal. WRX Property Group offers an experienced team of full-time realtors ready and able to take on this important task; our clients all have a personally-responsible realtor working for them for as long and as often as they need. As a client with WRX Property Group, there will be a realtor on the clock for you every day – during standard work hours, as well as evenings and weekends. When a suitable property comes up, we will always let you know right away. In fact, we offer an automated notification by email, which will detect and flag properties up to 24 hours before they even appear on the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service).
Finding YOUR Dream Home
As full-time realtors, the WRX Property Group team is engaging with the real estate market every day. We will use our connections in the local community, as well as our commitment to prospecting and networking within the real estate world, to access a broader array of listings and opportunities. This, in turn, means more options for you. We believe in a proactive approach to finding and buying a home, and we will work round the clock, making use of all of the tools at our disposal, to find the home that meets or exceeds your expectations.
Experience and Knowledge
Beyond this, the WRX Property Group team is fluent in the wide range of legalities and conditions that have a bearing on the negotiation and purchasing process. Quite simply, with WRX Property Group working for you, this is something you won’t have to worry about. We will protect your interests throughout the negotiation process, in order to ensure you get the best possible deal, with no unwelcome surprises. We will also take care of all pertinent legalities, including but not limited to conditions, disclosures, and warranties. Once again, we worry about this side of the process so you don’t have to.
How Much Does It Cost?
Finally, it is free for buyers to be represented by a realtor. The buyer agent’s fees are covered by the seller through what is known as ‘co-operating commission.’ This applies to nearly all real estate transactions throughout Canada (a small number of properties/sale types are not covered by this co-operating commission).
How We Work to Find Your Ideal Home
WRX Property Group is based in Kitchener-Waterloo, and it is an area we know and love. We have considerable knowledge and insight into the Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph markets, we are well-networked in both the real estate world and the local community, and we are highly experienced in the increasingly vital online aspect of buying homes. For our full-service team of realtors, every day holds opportunities for our clients that we will not let slip away. We work every day, and we are on-call 24/7.
We guarantee effective, friendly, comprehensive, and responsive customer service. One of the reasons we work so hard to keep up to date with trends in the local market and developments in the local community is so that we can pass this information on to our clients, and use this knowledge to provide advice and guidance based on your needs. We believe that asking the right questions, and actively listening to and understanding your needs, is absolutely crucial. By knowing precisely what you’re looking for, we can do everything in our power to deliver, and find the right home, in the right place, at the right price, for you.
How We Fight to Protect Your Interests as a Buyer
Through real-world experience, a strong educational background, and an ongoing commitment to research, we are extremely well-versed in the intricacies of the real estate world and certain of our ability to protect your interests. Additionally, we believe that it’s not enough for us to simply establish a firm basis of understanding and expertise: we are confident in our understanding of the varied laws, regulations, and strategies that make up real estate, but we also believe that there’s always more to learn. The real estate market, and the policies and regulations surrounding it, is not static – it is always changing and evolving. Therefore, we are committed to continuously monitoring any and all developments, whether on a local, regional, or national level.
Sharing Our Knowledge
An offshoot of our continuous drive to deepen our understanding of the Kitchener-Waterloo market and community is the WRX Property Group blog. We cover a wide range of subjects, including everything from analyses of schools in the region to things to do around Kitchener-Waterloo (as well as the surrounding regions, including Cambridge and Guelph). We also have several series that would be of significant interest to people looking to buy a home: our Monthly Market Reports take a close look at the raw numbers in the Kitchener-Waterloo market (including overall sales divided by quadrant, comparisons to sales numbers over the past decade, analysis of new governmental policies, and more). Our Buyers section of articles delves into many of the options and considerations available for prospective buyers; for example, you can read up on two car garages and whether or not a home with a pool is right for you. We want to provide you with the data and analysis necessary to make an informed decision.
