We provide a comprehensive umbrella of protection
All licensed agents are insured, legal fiduciaries and must work to protect the public by acting in the best interests of clients. We work in partnership with provincial regulators and licensing bodies to make sure that your transaction is a success.
Pemberton Holmes sales representatives are legally obligated to uphold the rights and interests of consumers. Genuine care and concern about people makes all the difference in our business.
Begin with a personal appointment
The first step is to meet with your sales representative who will conduct an in-depth analysis of your situation and determine market value. From there, an advertising and promotion plan is developed that is specific to the needs of you and your family.
Your sales representative will schedule professional-quality photography and multi-media to make your MLS® listing stand out from the competition (ask for details). A key lockbox and lawn sign will be installed to make your property easier to find and show.
The cost to sell is different for every property
Your sales representative will explain selling costs in detail during your personal appointment. There are a number of factors that affect the total selling cost including commission, fees, potential upgrades, and taxes.
Price Is Set By Supply And Demand In The Current Market
There are two ways to establish a value for your home. The first is an appraisal and the other is a comparative market analysis. An appraisal is a snapshot of value in the market at that moment. In comparison, a comparative market analysis is a multi-disciplinary approach that takes into account changing demand, price trajectories, and potential equity enhancers such as a new school planned for the neighbourhood.
Your sales representative will present a comprehensive study on market values and help you decide on an asking price to sell your Lake Cowichan home.
Your Sales Representative Will Coordinate Showings
A lockbox with an entrance key will provide easy access to sales representatives who have a secure electronic key provided by the local real estate board. After a showing, we’ll let you know what the buyer’s reaction was and if their sales representative received any feedback for you. As an option, your sales representative will discuss open houses to determine if they’re right for marketing your home.
Security and safety are the highest priority for everyone so if you have concerns, just let us know.
The Buyer’s Representative Will Draft The Purchase Offer
Your sales representative will review it with you, discuss the implications of the terms, and assist with decisions to reject, alter, or accept the offer. Your agent is trained in negotiating terms and conditions for real property. We will ensure the terms fully support your best interests in the transaction.
We Will Manage The Closing Process For You
Your sales representative will continue working for you after the sale. We are here to support you by managing the transaction and assisting with the due diligence process. Financing, home inspections, and a second walk-through can affect the contract terms. Your sales representative will facilitate any changes that might be needed and keep the sale process moving forward to completion.
If you have questions after moving in, you’re invited to contact us for friendly advice or just to say ‘hello’. You’re part of our family when you buy or sell a home with Pemberton Holmes.
