As I have written in this space many times, change is constant. Paradigms shift, new players come into the market, technology changes the way we do things. Real Estate seems particularly affected by this these days. The number of companies portraying themselves as “dis- ruptors” to the real estate industry have been multiplying at what seems like an exponential rate.
One of the first things that you have to do when buying or selling a property with a REALTOR® is to establish the relationship between you. This is normally accomplished through an agency agreement such as a Buyer agency or listing agreement in the case of the sale of a property.
With the continuous influx of new buyers to the Escarpment real estate market, builders are looking to the lifestyle goals of potential new residents when planning housing developments. The result is custom built communities geared towards practical yet luxurious four-season living, with a side of socializing.
Anyone who has looked to buy a house in the last 20 years has likely found themselves “shopping” on REALTOR.CA®. This portal has been the go-to place for current real estate information for ages. But does anyone remember what was used before that?
