red soil real estate inc: Top Realtors, Top Service? - 03/17/11 09:32 AM
The Real Estate industry is the same as any other service business...there are some who sell the most properties, and are therefore, considered the best choice by perspectives buyers and sellers to work for them. Top selling Realtors however, may not be the ones giving the best service to their clients. Some top Realtors sell the same properties over and over...why?...seems like the purchasers were talked into the properites and then, within a short while, woke up to the realization that the property wasn't a good choice for them...a form of hypnotism?...well maybe not to that extent, but close.
It is very … (0 comments)

red soil real estate inc: We're Realtors, Not Inspectors - 02/28/11 11:02 AM
We get a call as Realtors from a potential buyer about a house, let's say a fixer upper, and the client asks "What is the house like?"...What are we as Realtors supposed to say in response?...We could say that we are not inspectors, we are sales people, and refer them to a bonifide house inspector...or we could give the client our assessment of the condition of the house...but there's a "fine line" here...we can't speak as having the expertise to assess a structure as a home inspector could...the safe response may be to generally give the client a description of the … (4 comments)

red soil real estate inc: Real Estate Trading Act, Prince Edward Island, Canada - 02/27/11 10:35 AM
The PEI Real Estate Association in Prince Edward Island, Canada, is not a "free for all". Every PEI Realtor, and every PEI Real Estate transaction has to meet the standards of the Real Estate Trading Act.

red soil real estate inc: "If You Snooze, You Lose" - Prince Edward Island, Canada - 02/27/11 09:47 AM
"If you snooze you lose" or "don't wait for spring, do it now" are fairly well known expressions that have a lot of truth in them. They certainly are very applicable in the Real Estate business. Recently here in PEI, this Realtor told two different clients to get an offer in and "do it now". Neither of the clients took my suggestion, and , guess what, both of them lost out in buying their properties. Maybe it's because the clients  think a Realtor is giving this advice for their own self-serving interest or maybe they think that there is time to … (3 comments)
