We Will Always Do Right For You When Selling Your Kawartha Lakes Home
• Listing homes is a numbers game for far too many agents…
• Some potential clients just want to hear the highest listing price… even when it is not possible!
• While others want to know what kind of discount you will offer them on the sale.
It always amazes us that all these ‘home improvement’ shows have rarely illustrated the ‘true sense’ of the real estate business. Our goal as your representatives is to always do the right thing for our clients.
That means we will not tell you an unrealistically high price to list your house at.
Instead we will be an ‘ever present’ sales team who will represent you and your house with the most information and marketing talents available. No other Kawartha Lakes realtor markets online as we do. That can be easily proven by Googling me and our business for home sellers.
So when you, a potential listing client, tell us after 4 months of interviewing (yes, sellers are now interviewing up to 8 real estate agents) that we are one of two finalists but the other agent is willing to cut their fee…what can we say other than “you get what you pay for”. They can’t offer you the marketing and push that we do.
A seller’s comfort zone must be attained by them alone, if the fee paid to an agent is a driving force, well we always say, ultimately you get what you pay for. All we can do is smile at this point. We are not a discount brokerage and above all else represent our clients in all aspects of a transaction and after the fact.
Make your decision sellers and be aware of how you made it. What you do not see may come back to bite you. When you see clearly, we can be reached at 1-866-445-4440. But remember we will always do the right thing for you in selling your home.

City offers loan program to help homeowners solve septic problems
Applications are available at the city’s website or at Municipal Service Centres
Kawartha Lakes This Week
(KAWARTHA LAKES) Applications are now available for the City’s septic rehabilitation loan program in which local homeowners can get money to perform repairs on their septic systems – or even get them replaced if necessary.
“This program provides a unique opportunity for rural residents to upgrade their septic systems and obtain financing that will be paid on their taxes at a lower interest rate than what most people would be able to achieve through conventional lending institutions. A great time for homeowners to address concerns with their private systems to improve the environment and ultimately local water quality,” says Mayor Ric McGee.
City of Kawartha Lakes council has set aside $150,000 for the program, and loans will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis and repayment schedules vary from five to 20 years, depending on the amount of the loan. The loans will not exceed 25 per cent of the current value assessment of the property or $35,000, including taxes.
If the property in question is owned by more than one person, all owners must sign the agreement with the City with the loan being a lien against the property. Also, if there are other financial agreements attached to the property, applicants must comply with their obligations to other lenders because this loan takes priority over other registered interests appearing on the title.
For more information or to get an application, visit the city’s website or a Municipal Service Centre
