Your home is your most valuable asset. To correctly understand your financial position, it is absolutely important to accurately determine the true value of your home!

Even if you are not planning on selling your home soon, it can be beneficial to have a home evaluation done in advance. And we’re here to help you do that. We provide people in the community with free home evaluations that can help them plan for the future sale of their home. There is no obligation and no pressure to sell. We make it that way because we recognize the process of deciding to sell can take as little as one week for some and as much as five years or more for others.

So how do you ensure you’ll be receiving the true value of home? You will have the expertise of two nationally ranked top-producing agents, Cathy and Tanya, who will prepare a custom comparative market analysis for your home. They will analyze the most up-to-date trends in your area along with the current market activity for homes similar to yours to determine the correct listing price for your home.

Remember, it’s not just all about what is selling in your neighborhood. It’s important to remember that not all evaluations are that straight forward. It is our experience and expertise that allows us to think outside the box and understand the true value in upgrades and the uniqueness of some homes that account for true added value when selling.

Beyond the home evaluation, we take you through the entire process of selling your home and our hands-on award-winning client care system, so that when you are ready to sell you are comfortable with the process and your decision. For us, it is about listening to your needs and acting proactively so that you are prepared…for your next big move, of course!

To schedule a free, no obligation home evaluation call us directly at 905-335-4102, email us at info@roccasisters.ca or visit our website, http://www.RoccaSisters.ca. Our personal approach and proven results will surpass your expectations!

Our top Q&A’s from sellers & buyers just like you

The sale of your home can bring about many emotions and often times our clients have many questions for us when they are ready to sell and buy. We provide detailed answers to ensure they make the best decision on what is often the biggest investment they’ve made in their lives to-date: their home.

Today, we’ve compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions. Perhaps, you’ll find a few of your questions in it! We’re happy to provide you with the answers.

Q: How is it that some people seem to know about a property before I even see it on mls.ca?

A: First a property is listed with the Real Estate Board. Then, the sales representative will likely erect a sign. It can be as long as a week before that property shows up on realtor.ca. By then, it could be sold. To make matters worse, the sale of the property may not be reported to realtor.ca, for as much as another week or month. If you are depending on realtor.ca, lawn signs or newspaper ads to find a new home, you are most definitely going to be disappointed.

Q: How can I find out what properties are selling for in a particular area?

A: When you engage a member of the Rocca Sisters & Associates to represent you as a buyer, you ensure that you are receiving all of the comparable information you need to establish the right price for any property that interests you.

Q: What are the specific infrastructure issues about a property for which I should be watching?

A: The Rocca Sisters & Associates members have spent years developing an understanding of what to look for in terms of the integrity of a home and its systems. How old is the furnace? Are there moisture issues? How much life is left on the roof? These are only a few questions that should be asked before considering a property. While we would never want to take the place of a home inspector, we will save you a lot of time by pointing out the more obvious issues of a home.

Q: What about all the paperwork and legal-eze. Do I really need a realtor to help me with this?

A: The only alternative to using a realtor for preparing and reviewing offers is to employ legal counsel. Realtors have been highly trained in this aspect of the process and will ensure that your offers are prepared in a way that protects you.
