Sarnia- Lambton is experiencing some record breaking real estate sales volumes, and in some cases record high sale prices. Some neighbourhoods and home owners are being solicited every day by realtors or individual people looking to move into desirable neighbourhoods. You could get touching letters from possible buyers, or compelling letters from realtors claiming to want your home or to have someone to purchase your home. Remember that you need your own personal independent real estate advice from an professional experienced realtor, otherwise you have no one looking after your best interests, and could be leaving money on the table. Some realtors claiming to have buyers, simply don’t. They may bring someone by that they are currently showing homes to , then ask you later to list your house with them, ...their real plan all along. Sometimes you get people that come around pretending to be buyers loving your home and area, but are really house flippers and are only there to take advantage of you. They will tell you if you sell to them you will save the real estate fee, and then later you discover your house back on the market at a much higher price. Look at your neighbourhood price trends and always expose your house for a period of time with hard paper advertising as well as internet promotion to insure you get the highest possible price. If you don’t have someone you can trust in real estate you can always check with friends and relatives about their personal experience dealing with realtors, as well as do your own research.  A realtor you can trust, and feel comfortable with, will help you from being taken advantage of.
