Advantages of Selling your property in Gatineau with ALAIN FOURNIER
1. Optimal price
As real estate brokers we have the skills and experience to do a comparative market analysis with you, assess your property and set a strategic price.
2. Secure transaction
We are members in good standing of the OACIQ (Organisme d'autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec), whose mission is to protect the public interest during real estate transactions. We are thus subject to the terms of the Real Estate Brokerage Act, a code of conduct and rules of cooperation for members of our profession.
We look after the necessary forms, procedures and documents for your transaction (certificate of location, promise to purchase, counter-offer, declaration of co-ownership, tax accounts, mortgage approval, building inspection report, notice of fulfillment of conditions, technical sheets, etc.).
4. Seller's mandatory disclosure
We will help you draft the seller's mandatory disclosure of your property's physical condition, along with lists of completed work and tasks yet to be done. This will help win your buyer's trust, and lower the chance of a disappointing post-inspection price reduction request (or even a lawsuit for hidden defects after the deed is signed).
5. Let us do the work
You already work hard, and selling a property is a huge investment of time and energy. We will help save you time and stress by doing most of the work for you (brochures, marketing, viewings, inspections, financing, notary, post-sale follow-up service, etc.). Your role in the process will be to provide certain documents, show your home in its best possible light, listen to advice, make the necessary decisions, and make the most of your evenings and weekends!
6. Strategy and negotiation
Taking the circumstances of each transaction into account, we will lend you our expertise to assist, advise, reassure, plan, confirm, simplify, communicate, protect, and optimize your negotiations. Our extensive knowledge of strategy (promise to purchase, two-pronged counter-offer, multiple promises to purchase, bidding wars, promise to purchase conditional on sale of another property, etc.) will help you find practical solutions to any potential problems so you can avoid unpleasant legal troubles.
7. More exposure, more SALES!
I'm sure you've seen the many new "SOLD" stickers on our signs. This is no accident. Aside from countless hours advising and negotiating, we offer an unrivalled marketing plan (major print and electronic dailies, community newspapers, signs, state-of-the-art Web site, leaflets and brochures mailed out by neighbourhood and price range, etc.). We do all we can to ensure buyers see the properties of the sellers we represent.
8. A vital network
In Quebec, some 75 percent of real estate transactions are the work of 14,000 brokers representing more than 75,000 properties on the market. As head of your marketing efforts, we are ideally positioned to help you profit from this exposure and your contact with the many realty professionals working with serious and qualified buyers on your behalf. We will encourage, motivate, inform and remunerate these vital partners to help you obtain the best possible terms on the sale of your home.
9. Photos can help sell a home
We work with professional photographers who use state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. Your photos will be highly visible on the Internet, prompting interested buyers to seek information or arrange viewings of your property.
10. Home viewings and reports
After each viewing, a written report is left behind (or sent by e-mail if the owner lives elsewhere). This service, highly valued by our clients, ensures they always know the results of activity on their property.
