Choosing The Right Real Estate Agent When Selling

Having a professional real estate broker makes a real difference in your real estate journey, especially in the fast moving Greater Toronto Area real estate market.

A licensed Toronto REALTOR© finds prices of comparable homes in your area and suggests what yours is worth. They list homes on the MLS (multiple listing service) and book showings and open houses. Your realtor can prepare offers of purchase for Axess Law real estate attorneys to review and provide documents we need to close your sale. Without a realtor, you can expect to do all the work yourself.

Home inspections protect real estate buyers and sellers from unfortunate and costly lawsuits. Your home is sold in “as is” condition.

Home buyers have up to two years after discovering a defect to take legal action.
