Need tips for selling your home in Nanaimo? The first, last and most important tip is to use a Realtor. And no, this isn't a self-serving post. Here's why. Realtors are legally required to follow certain rules and codes of conduct, plus they are trained to spot flaws and defects that the average lay person would miss. Just as importantly they can foresee problems with contracts, inspections, loans and closing issues - and get them solved before they end up harming your deal. Selling and buying houses is their specialty.
