We had our home up for sale before with a local real estate agent for 8 months. He told us ow the market was saturated with homes for sale and that we would have to lower our price. We lowered the price a few times until it was well below what we paid for it and although we had offers they still couldn't come close to the money we wanted to walk away with after we would pay the real estate agent commission fees/HST, etc. We ended up refusing all offers leaving us very frustrated. We ended our contract with the real estate agent. After a couple of months we thought if we listed our home at a fair market price and sold it privately perhaps we might have a better chance of getting an offer we would be happy with. After all what did we have to lose? We listed with Grape Vine and we had lots of showings, meeting some really nice people and ended up selling our home with Grape Vine for the price we wanted in 8 weeks NOT 8 months in a buyer's market. We regret not using Grape Vine earlier.
You can do all the work of selling, so why let an agent collect all that commission? It isn't rocket science. An informed seller, willing to put in time and effort can do the same job that an agent can. Have a good real estate lawyer back you up. Frankly, the lawyer is more important and valuable than any agent, and at a lesser cost…agents have no magic secrets. They simply introduce a potential buyer to a seller. For THAT, you want to pay 5%?
This is my 2nd house that I used Grape Vine and Sold by myself both place (In 2005, My first house was on 60 Gowrie Dr. Kanata). Your web site attracted many buyers.
Great easy way to sell your home for more money.
No one can sell your home better than you!
If you have a great house to sell, the logical choice is a Grape Vine listing!
It was easy to set-up the listing. Customer service is great!
Experience could not have been better. Definitely less stressful than selling via a real estate company and the 5 percent saving on the overall selling price was a great perk. The service provided by grapevine totally met our expectations, very professional.
Sold in a buyers market for 97% of asking price!
This is my second time selling with Grape Vine and I look forward to doing it again. Their customer service and support is second to none. Thank you Grape Vine for another rewarding experience!
Our experience with Grape Vine was great. Being able to use the website to make changes when we wanted and having the Usher Group available and responsive was terrific. Knowing someone would answer the phone or email at Grape Vine each time we got in contact helped a lot - thank you Erin. Ryan Rogers from the Usher Group was very responsive when we needed changes made so we appreciate his time and dedication.
Great service, sold within two weeks!
Great marketing tool and very helpful and enthusiastic people too!
This is our 3rd house we have sold with Grape Vine and it's always been a very easy, trouble free experience and has saved us thousands of dollars over the years. I would highly recommend using Grape Vine!
Grape Vine allowed us to sell privately saving us the commission a real estate agent would get. This allowed us to price our home lower and sell fast!
Grape Vine cost me a few hundred dollars and saved me $18,000 in real estate commissions. Sounds like the right move to me!
The Grape Vine team were very prompt in responding to questions and quite helpful. A+ for service.
Grape Vine staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about all aspects of selling a home. They made the process fun and easy, giving you all the tools you need for a successful sale. I will definitely use them again!
This is our third home we have sold through Grape Vine, it's a very small percentage of the market looking for homes over $500K, we had no trouble finding qualified buyers on Grape Vine.
|We used a brokerage to sell our house, and after 3 months and 20 showings and no offers we decided to use Grape Vine to sell our house. In one month we had more showings and 4 offers. We are very happy with the service provided by Grape Vine and will definitely recommend it to friends. We will definitely use in the future, although we are not looking to sell our future home any time soon. Big Thank you again! DO NOT listen to agents that say you can't sell on your own and that they can get you more money.|
