Pricing Your Home Right

Can the Stratten Gates Real Estate Ltd. Brokerage provide me with "SOLD PROPERTY DATA"?

Yes, we can!

Property Evaluation Pricing Tool Pricing your property accurately is REALLY important. And it should come as no surprise that many full service real estate agents count on sellers needing this information - making it the MAIN reason many sellers end up hiring a full service agent to look after the sale in the first place - which also ends up being the single most expensive way to sell a home.

As well, it should be noted that if you hire a full service REALTOR® to price your home, they get to pick through the comparable properties that they will use to convince "you" that the price they think it's worth is backed up by the data they are showing you. With our pricing tool, you get to decide what data you think is relevant to your property, not the REALTOR(S)®.

Several Flat Fee Service Suppliers will also offer this same data to you "as part of a fancy listing package offering", but at a much higher price! We make this information available to sellers who are using our Flat Fee MLS® listing services whenever possible, and they don't have to spend over $1,000 on a fancy flat fee listing package to get it.

The Sold Data reports we supply contain real & current MLS® market data based on the comparable criteria that you, the seller, has requested comparison data for. We supply you with the sold listings reports in PDF format, and you use this data to help guide you while pricing your property.

There is a charge for the Sold Listing Data of $75.00 and each seller is given up to 3 separate report requests for that amount. Each report request will include whatever comparable properties were available in PDF format at the time of the request. Reports are usually supplied to the seller within 12-24 hours of receiving the pricing tools request notification from the system.

Please note: The Sold Property Data reports that we supply, do not comprise either a price recommendation or an opinion of value from the Stratten Gates Real Estate Ltd. Brokerage, or For Sale By Owner Inc. We are not able to suggest, or recommend an actual listing price for any property due to regulatory and legal considerations - because we are not a "Full Service" Listings Brokerage.

Also Note: There are other effective ways of gathering pricing information online as well. Many people use to view properties that are currently available in their area with similar key features. Many of the listings on the website have been priced by full service real estate agents, so private sellers generally feel comfortable using this pricing information.
