Transparency. At Aedis Realty, we believe in treating you, the client, with respect.
This means being clear and up front with the costs involved of our services. We have nothing to hide, here is a detail of our service plan for you, including our segmented services for those of you that want to custom design your own plan.
At Aedis Realty Ltd., we understand that not everybody is interested in the traditional, full service Real Estate sales model of full representation. While we excel at these full services, we also offer the following segmented services so that you, if you wish, can pick and choose what help you need from us. Down the road, if you want to reconsider and have us completely take over – we’d be happy to. If you do, our listing commission will reflect what you’ve already invested.
Services and Fees
Property Appraisal $425 + GST
This is the best start. Get a professional valuation on your home by our sister organization, Aedis Appraisals, then you will know how to price it and the appraisal will arm you for negotiations. The report will also review all the competing properties in the area and recommend a list price.
Professional Photographs $250
We will send one of our professional photographer partners to take up to 20 of the best possible pictures of your home, as this is your #1 tool for attracting traffic.
Mere Posting on MLS $1450 + GST
Thanks to the Canadian Real Estate Association and the Commissioner of Competition’s consent order in 2010, you can pay to post your listing on the MLS, and Aedis Realty is happy to help! This will get your property listed up and running on the MLS for any period of time you desire, up to 6 months. This fee includes having one of our agents inspect your property, measure the home and inventory its components, such as finish, rooms, mechanical and more. We then will publish the data on the MLS along to ensure your property shows its best. When you get an offer, we promise to be on hand to help advise you as to the best strategy for negotiating that deal so that your best interests are represented.
* Note, when sold and upon closing there is an additional $725 administration fee to process the sale documentation.
