My clients were in search of the perfect family home where they could start their growing family. This was for a younger couple who were expecting their first child. We started looking for homes near Bayview and Steeles because this was where my clients grew up and it brought back a lot of great memories. They wanted the same for their own family and so, we started looking in this neighborhood.
The market during this time of the year was much quieter and lacked competitions due to the rate increase. I recommended my clients that it would be a good time to purchase now with no offer dates and competitive buyers. We found a beautiful detached home at 30 Almond Ave in Markham that was renovated, open concept and had an extended kitchen which they really wanted.
The home was listed for $1.799 M and without other buyers our first offer started at $1.750 M. Without other competitors we were able to take advantage of offering less than listing price and included an inspection. Including conditions/inspections when there are other buyers makes your offer weaker and less appealing and so we took advantage of this opportunity. They counter offered a bit higher and closer to their listing price. Eventually we agreed upon a price right in between their offer and our first offer. It didn’t take much negotiating and they were extremely easy to work with. This was such a seamless process and the best buying experience I could have hoped for my clients.
