Are you thinking of buying a house in St. Catharines, Ontario or surrounding areas? When the decision has been made to either buy or sell your home (which is probably the largest investment you will ever make), there’s no substitute for the expertise of a trusted real estate professional.Finding the right agent though, in all honesty, can be overwhelming. Not everybody knows a real estate professional, and when it comes time to buy or sell your home, you might just give up and call the first salesperson you recall from that park bench sign.The main rule of thumb to remember when it’s time to buy or sell is: hire someone you’d trust with your most prized possession -  because that’s exactly what you’ll be doing.

Are you Selling?
Get comfortable with the knowledge that you’ll be giving this person access to your home, even when you’re not going to be there. She/he will be controlling open houses, showings, and perhaps even contacting lawyers, contractors, and home inspectors, on your behalf.

Are you Buying?
Since most of us work a full 40-hour week, it’s not always easy to search for properties online and drive around the city, which is, of course, the biggest advantage of havinga real estate professional work for you. You’ll be placing this person in charge of finding you one of the largest investments you’ll likely make in your lifetime.Your real estate professional should be up-to-speed onvital issues like rental property by-laws, making sure the house can be insured before an offer is signed, zoning by-laws, and much more.
