What is the history of this house?

 

Here’s a quick note to let you know how I can help you—or anyone you feel comfortable introducing me to.

Buying a home means buying the history of that home. The more a buyer knows about that history the happier they’ll be in creating their own story there. But home sellers sometimes are nervous about divulging history, especially if it’s tinged negatively. Luckily for buyers, it’s the law that when sellers complete the property disclosure statement, issues like a persistent leak, or the fact that the sewer line backs up in a heavy rain will be disclosed to you.

As a real estate consultant, my solution to awkward disclosures is to prepare the seller’s positions in advance, right when we’re listing the home. Then, if a buyer has concerns with any of the disclosures, we are ready to negotiate strongly.

If you or anyone you know, is thinking about selling a home and needs a strong negotiator, call me or text me at 1-250-794-1515 or email me at scott@scottsauer.ca for immediate professional advice.

Who’s the next person you know who’s thinking about selling a home? Please let them know how my experience can help them.

Should You Downsize Before Retirement?

Many homeowners live in large, often multi-story homes that they simply don’t need any longer. Their kids are grown and moved out. They don’t enjoy cleaning it. They can’t manage the huge yard. But they own it free and clear…so why move? Here are some thought-provoking questions for boomers to consider.

Is your house worth enough so that you can buy a nice single level home for less? There are several developments in Fort St John that may meet your needs perfectly. Would it be more profitable to invest your equity now and enjoy life a bit more? Travel, buy a nice RV or move South?

If you, or someone you know, lives in a home that’s too large for them now, and they might want help answering these real estate questions, please call or text me at 1-250-794-1515 or email me at scott@scottsauer.ca for immediate professional advice.
