Buying a property is a big step. It is often the biggest financial commitment people ever make. If you’re looking for a home, a real estate professional can provide valuable expertise and support to help you make informed decisions that will lead you to buying a property that best meets your needs and is within your budget.

Real estate representatives are licensed professionals qualified to protect your best interests. They undergo a real estate program and exams before applying to the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO). Once licensed, they take mandatory continuing education courses to maintain their general knowledge and skills. Many also choose to specialize in specific types of real estate.

Salespeople, Brokers and Brokerages are Insured

All salespeople, brokers, and brokerages carry insurance through the program administered by RECO, which includes consumer deposit insurance. This coverage aims to protect your deposit when a brokerage holds it.

Moreover, real estate reps typically offer buyers a broad range of service options. These options may include sharing their knowledge about housing in specific neighborhoods, monitoring market trends, providing strategic advice, arranging showings, negotiating, and managing paperwork on your behalf.

Get Referrals From Family And Friends

To choose the most appropriate real estate professional, first, I suggest getting referrals from family and friends if they had a positive experience and similar needs to yours. Next, interview a few representatives and select someone who understands your needs and with whom you’re comfortable. Additionally, consider picking someone knowledgeable in the specific type of property you’re looking for, whether it’s a condominium, semi-detached or detached house, or recreational property (such as a cottage), and who is familiar with the areas you’re interested in.
