You will need to have a lawyer assist you with the paperwork. Click here for a list of lawyers we recommend.
As soon as you are given an offer from a buyer, you need to call your lawyer. You should not sign any documents until you contact your lawyer.
HOW TO GET STARTED
It’s easy, just book a listing appointment on our calendar by clicking here and your appointment time will be confirmed during business hours. A licensed REALTOR® will explain what happens so you can be prepared for your appointment.
On average, the listing appointment will take 2 hours. Less time for smaller homes such as condo’s and slightly longer for larger homes.
A licensed REALTOR® will do a walkthrough of the property to gather all information on the property, they will measure the inside and outside of the property, they will take all photo’s of the property, they will complete all paperwork and they will give you a consult on the process.
No problem! We can complete paperwork electronically with you but we do need to confirm your identity which can be done through your lawyer.
No, we do not give suggestions for list prices as we are an online marketing service. You must advise us on what you want to list for. You are free to get the opinions of agents or appraisers to determine this.
No, we are an online marketing service. But you can choose to do as many price changes as you like.
Your property can be listed for up to 2 years.
Changes to your listing must be submitted on the first and third Tuesday of every month. We will provide you with the proper documentation for changes to your listing. Updates will be done as quickly as 1 business day but may take up to 5 business days depending on the total volume of changes required.

Please see our resource page for recommendations on professionals in this industry.
ADVERTISING & OPEN HOUSES
Can I advertise my realtor.ca listing on other for sale by owner websites and social media such as Kijiji and Facebook?
Yes! You can advertise your listing wherever you like.
Yes! You can do open houses as often as you would like.
Yes! As long as you submit notice on the first and third Tuesday of the month, your open house can be advertised on realtor.ca .
Yes you will have to show your own property. Unless the buyer is represented by an agent, then the agent will want to show your home to their buyer. Most agents prefer that you are not home when they show your home to their client.
No. This is an online marketing service only so you would be responsible to show your home to private buyers.
No! This is the great part of using Advertise By Owner. We will be putting on a lockbox which allows agents to access your property with ease. Appraisers and home inspectors also have access to our lock boxes so this will save you time from having to always be at your property to let an industry professional into your home. Because the lockbox requires access via a special devise, you will not have access to the key in the lockbox until the lockbox is removed from the property.
You can choose to receive a text, phone call or email or a combination of these. Your contact information will not be published on realtor.ca but will be in the MLS® System for agents to contact you if they have a buyer they want to show your property to.
Some will and some won’t. Agents take on a higher liability when they work with a seller who is not represented by an agent so some agents will not show properties that are listed privately for this reason.
