Your written service agreement is a seller representation agreement, also called a listing agreement. The agreement includes the details of the listing, including listing price, inclusions/exclusions, possession date, and lists your responsibilities and obligations as well as those of your real estate licensee.
Before you list your home for sale, there are things you can do to get ready.
Have your documents ready, things like:
-RPR (real property report)
– Any tenant leases
-Know where your mortgage sits if applicable
-Any contracts or services associated with the property
Once you’re ready to sell your home, your likely next step is to find a licensee to assist you.
You want to find a real estate licensee you trust, who can answer your questions, help you set an appropriate listing price, market your property, guide you through the process, and help you successfully negotiate a sale.
It’s important to find a professional that will suit your needs. But how?
Word of mouth referrals
Get recommendations from your friends and neighbours about their experiences with real estate licensees.
Almost all real estate licensees have an online presence, whether it’s a personal website or profiles on various social media sites. Do some searching online and find someone who appeals to you.
Find out if they’re licensed
Real estate licensees need a licence to work in Alberta. Once you’ve found the name(s) of licensees you’re considering, do a public licence search on RECA’s website to make sure their licence is current. See the “Find a licensee” on reca.ca.
Check the RECA website
RECA posts disciplinary decisions on its website. Check the Complaints & Discipline tab on RECA’s website for disciplinary history to see if RECA disciplined the licensee with whom you want to work.
Interview some residential real estate licensees
While the above suggestions will help you find licensees to talk to, they won’t tell you exactly which licensees are right for you. Your next step should be to interview those you are considering. Make sure they have the experience, background, and knowledge necessary to assist you in your purchase or sale. You need to feel comfortable with your choice, so it’s a good idea to ask them for references, and let them know you’re interviewing multiple licensees.
The real estate licensees you interview will likely also have questions for you. These could include:
Alberta real estate professionals must use the Residential Measurement Standard (RMS) when measuring residential properties. This measurement standard helps consumers easily and accurately compare different types of residential properties.
The RMS offers a consistent means of representing the property’s above grade space. Among other things, the RMS sets out what parts of a property can be included in its measured-area. For example, if a room has a dormer with a ceiling height of only 4 feet, is it included as floor space? What about finished basements that are entirely below grade? The RMS information benefits consumers because:
In Alberta, if you are married, but your spouse isn’t a registered owner on your property title, you may need their consent in order to sell the property. The seller representation agreement refers to spousal consent, and your real estate professional can provide you with more information. Dower rights originate from the Dower Act.
You must tell your real estate professional if you have a spouse who is not on title, and they can help you obtain written spousal consent to sell the property.
