Imagine trading in your car at first dealership you see, without shopping around. That wouldn’t make sense.
Yet three out of four Vancouver home sellers consult just one realtor to sell their most valuable asset.
Always Second Guess Your Home’s Valuation
An experienced real estate agent’s second opinion unlocks your home’s full value.
Not all agents are the same and you want to hire one to have full confidence and trust. A no-pressure second opinion from an experienced real estate agent like myself, unlocks your home’s full value.
Learning to compare and contrast realtors, determining the strengths they bring and having work to sell you on those strengths, you’ll earn a higher return on profits and satisfaction.
A few extra hours of legwork can earn you tens of thousands dollars more.
Why Choose Michael Tudorie For A Second Opinion?
As an owner and investor, I believe in extracting maximum value from my investment, minimizing surprises, hassles and legalese.
As a Vancouver realtor, I spend time educating my clients so they can maximize their investment, not my commission. And as a homeowner, I know which home improvements can significantly bolster returns, and which ones do not.
I’m always happy to provide Vancouver home buyers a second opinion and helpful advice, some of which is conveniently below!
Considering a move in 2018? Here’s 10 top reasons to contact a realtor sooner than later:
- Get Vancouver real estate analysis and outlook from a dedicated professional. Vancouver’s local media generalizes and reports only the sensational aspects of the real estate market.
- Your street or neighbourhood market determines the final sold price because there are valid reasons why buyers would be willing to pay top price for your home vs one across the street (like people, no home is the same as another). Get personalized, expert advice that matters to you.
- Clarify any misconceptions or unknowns. Sometimes, neighbours or friends may have the right intentions, but the wrong advice.
- Knowing when to list. An expert Vancouver realtor knows the ‘low periods,’ such as civic and international holidays, as well as dates like January 21st (when everyone’s Christmas bills arrive)
- If you don’t know where to start, Vancouver real estate is overwhelming. A good realtor takes the overwhelming process, breaks it into easy steps and ensures you’re comfortable with the whole process.
- Many buyers and sellers spend six months average researching online, and less than 12 weeks working with an agent. Ideally, that timeframe should be reversed, with buyers and sellers working closely with a realtor and learning valuable lessons that cannot be acquired online.
- The sooner sellers learn from their realtor what home improvements yield higher returns, the less they’ll likely spend on them.
- If de-cluttering is necessary, assigning plenty of time to the task will save money and stress.
- Find a realtor who is active, representing a number of buyers and sellers in the past year. Realtor’s who are ‘out of the game’ will have less experience negotiating on one of your’s most precious investments.
- 10. Find out if you should sell or buy first. A realtor helps guide your decision, mitigates stress and helps you choose correctly. Is it best to buy pre-sale? Build your own? So many decisions!

How Do I Know How to Price My Home?
Setting the right list price for a home is a mystery for many sellers. How do you begin to determine what buyers are likely to pay for your property? After all, no two homes are exactly alike.
Setting the right price is crucial. You need to avoid the two price “tipping points” that, if crossed, can cause you a lot of problems.
How Low is Too Low?
The first tipping point is a price that’s low enough for buyers to begin thinking something is wrong. They wonder, “Why is your price so low? What are you not telling us about your property?”
"Do not wait to strike while the iron is hot; make it hot by striking!" Poetically said by William Yeats
But that’s not even the worst problem with this tipping point. If you do get offers at that low price, you’ll have a bigger issue – leaving thousands of dollars on the table.
How High is Too High?
The other tipping point is setting your price so high it discourages buyers from giving your listing a second look. When your price is that high, you’ll get few enquiries and even fewer people coming to see your property.
Of course, you can lower your price later, if necessary. But experience shows that reduced prices make potential buyers skeptical. Most sellers who price high in the hopes of getting a windfall actually end up selling for much less than they would have if they had priced their properties correctly in the first place.
