Saskatoon has a lot going for it.
In a CBC news story, Real Estate Investment Network founder Don Campbell offered the following good news on the Saskatoon market. “Saskatoon […] has food, fuel, fertilizer, and farmers. Those four Fs definitely are going to be needed in the future.”
The Real Estate Investment Market released a report saying that Saskatoon’s real estate market should outperform other Western Canadian cities in the coming years.
What does that mean for you? Saskatoon is not only a great place to live, it’s also a great place to invest in a home.
Questions to Ask Real Estate Agents
Some realtors are barely working part time. Others devote far more than 40 hours a week to helping their clients. You’ll want to find someone who has experience and has time for you; that way they will put the work in that’s needed to find or sell your home.
Here are a few questions to ask before hiring an agent:
• How many years have you been in the business?
• What are your plans to market my home?
• What is your online presence? • Do you plan on holding open houses?
• Do you use a professional photographer?
• Can you provide me with references?
• Will I be working directly with you or with your assistants?
• How do you handle multiple offers?
• What Saskatoon neighborhoods do you specialize in?
• How many clients are you currently working with?
• What will it cost me to sell my house?
• Can you help connect me with other professionals such as movers or decorators?
