If sales are up and listings down, at one point they will meet in the middle, in which case there won’t be any more listings available. We are reaching that point. I say in jest only because as I am trying to book condo visits for one of my clients, my system shows me that they are “in stock” on Centris.

However, after talking to the listing brokers 5 out of 8 have accepted offers and one just sold. On the upside for buyers, if you are working with a great broker, you’ll eventually find the right one and move fast and diligently. Diligent in a sense that there is an art to submitting a promise to purchase when in a multiple offer situation. There are so many different ways to construct an offer that it’s in your best interest to work with an experienced broker who has seen this many times over and has figured out what works best to get your offer accepted above the rest.

Picking the Right Mortgage Broker

About half the deals that I do are with a mortgage broker that I recommend. The other half is a toss-up. Meaning I never know who I am going to get to work with. Yes, work with. A lot of buyers think that they will be the only ones working with their lenders, however as a real estate broker, I put in a lot of time with them as well. It's my job to make sure that they have all the documents necessary for the sale, as well to make sure that our mortgage approval deadline is met.

The deadline that was created in the offer is of utmost importance to everyone involved. Sellers are already nervous, so to ask for an extension could potentially kill the deal. They are not obliged to extend. It's up to me, if I am in that situation, to convince the sellers and their real estate broker that we are still on track to get the mortgage approval, even though we haven't gotten it yet.

One of my jobs is to stay in collaboration with the listing broker. If I keep them in the loop every step of the way, they will be understanding of what is happening if I have to ask for an extension. Normally it's in the best interest of the seller to continue with the offer rather than drop it for the next one. However if you got the accepted deal while in a multiple offer circumstance, the situation isn't stable. The seller doesn't want to lose time dealing with you when they might have another buyer who has been bugging them for a chance.

What happened in September Market News – Montreal and surrounding areas

The trend continues as a buyer’s market. It’s even infiltrated condos, which has been stagnant until now. This does not mean that you just have to put up a sign and you’ll receive multiple offers. Due diligence of maintenance, repairs, cleaning, and staging your house is still very important. As well, creating an appealing listing with professional photos. This is what will make your house that much more desirable over the competition. Pricing your house competitively will also play a large role. Getting the buyers in the door is the first step!
