Is buying a home all about the money? You may be led to believe this, but what about factors like conditions, personal offer letters, and the closing date? Sellers often need to consider things past finances when making the decision about which offer to accept.

The reality is, navigating the offer process for buyers can be stressful and putting in the highest offer doesn’t always guarantee the home will be yours. Under seller’s market conditions, when there’s more demand than inventory supply, it’s likely buyers will need to consider more than a full-price offer to increase its desirability..

You know about staging and pricing a listing properly to attract buyers, but sometimes there’s an out-of-sight, out-of-mind history that sellers may have to disclose. A  property might look perfect on the outside, but if there was a death on site, it was used for illegal activity, or even if it’s reported to be haunted, it can become what’s known as “stigmatized.” This label can make the property more difficult to sell and might even bring down its value.

Toronto Canadian housing market

Has the pendulum in the Canadian housing market tilted toward homebuyers? This is the current debate unfolding among market analysts, real estate agents, homebuyers and sellers.
