Owners who have made the decision to list their homes without an experienced REALTOR may run into various road blocks. The biggest challenge is getting the exposure that is required in a vast and wide spread market, especially one like Toronto’s Real Estate market. This alone will cause FSBO’s (For Sale By Owners) to lose serious potential buyers due to the limited access that the general public will have to the listed property. Another major obstacle for FSBO’s is keeping track of viewings, and actually being able to trust the people they are allowing into their home.
These two major road blocks can simply be avoided by listing with Vahab Jalali, Sales Representative. When you list your home with Vahab Jalali, your property will be placed on the Stratus/REALTOR.ca website for millions to see. In addition to being listed on REALTOR.ca, your property will also be Syndicated to Google, Kijiji, Craigslist, Zoocasa, Oodle, Facebook, Twitter and Househunting.ca. This will give you the maximum amount of exposure you may need in order to get a quick and pain-free sale. When listing a property with Vahab Jalali, Century 21 Heritage Group Brokerage will keep track of all the showings on your property to ensure that all of the people entering your home have been properly identified (this is done by having an Individual Identification Form filled out) by each client.
