   Summerside London is a great neighbourhood for families as it has a great quick access to highway 401 and Veterans Memorial Parkway, making the commute to work that much less driving time!

     Summerside is one of London Ontario's newer communities and is located in  the South East of London, East of Highbury, north of the 401, West of Veterans Memorial Parkway (Airport Road) and south on Commissioners Road East.

     The Summerside neighbourhood of London  has been growing at the southeast edge of the city for about 14 years or so. Summerside holds a lot of appeal for those who wish to live in London, but whose work carries them to neighbouring communities such as St. Thomas, Ingersoll or Woodstock or quick access to Highway 401. 

   It is a popular area for younger families as house prices are attractive.  This community offers single family houses, condo townhouses, attached and de-tached condo bungalows and a gated condo corporation. There are houses being built all the time and the resale market is vibrant!  

   Plenty of shopping, schools and churches  nearby.

Emotion or Logic When Selling a Home in Summerside London Ontario?


Are There Logical & Emotional Decisions When Selling a House in London Ontario?

The majority of Canadians do not buy logically. They buy emotionally and then try to justify their purchases logically.

Love your Home

In real estate, some real estate salespeople logically try to convince their clients to buy a house in London Ontario. That is why they do not sell many homes or help buyer’s buy homes! Knowing that people will get involved in a property emotionally first & then; it is up to the real estate sales representative to provide solid, logical reasons to justify the purchase or even for that matter, the sale of a home.

Everything we buy is an emotional purchase. Take the shoes you are wearing. That is a logical point however the colour & style is your emotional choice.

What about a certain brand of food when there are 5 others just like it? We buy it because of advertising, or your parents bought it. You do not logically decide which brand to buy unless you are a frugal shopper and even then, saving money is an emotional decision!

In real estate, the same thing. Everyone needs shelter of some kind, which is the logical point. The type they presently own or rent is an emotional decision. Buyers may want a home of a certain size or location or like they grew up in, that is an emotional decision. For others, it may be based on what they can afford. That may sound logical but money and emotions are linked.

So, when it comes time to list your house for sale in London Ontario, who you list your house with and at what price, are they logical or emotional decisions?  

To effectively get buyers involved in your home, your listing Realtor must help them and their real estate salesperson make your house stand out physically, emotionally and financially.

Make your house in London Stand Out

To effectively help buyers to acquire your home, your listing Realtor must eliminate those things that create fear or tension and replace them with words; images and information that will make a home buyer want to invest their hard-earned money in your home.

Selling a house in London Ontario efficiently takes more than plopping a sign on your lawn; putting it on MLS and then hoping it will sell!

Logic or emotion is your choice!


Why Not Protect Yourself When Buying in Summerside London Ontario


   When you buy a home in Summerside London Ontario, we put in a clause in our offers that allows us to view the property 1 or 2 times before closing. The reason is, for me as a Realtor & to protect you, is to ensure there are no damages, that appliances are the same or the sellers did not leave any junk behind.

Get Results, use a Good Realtor

  About 90% of the time( over 100’s of transactions) most sellers have left their home in decent shape, but in some cases, you would be shocked. When we find out the home is not in the same condition when we bought it, or the place is filthy or appliances were switched, we contact your lawyer immediately.

 Of course, we also contact the seller’s Realtor as well and in most cases, they too are not happy with the condition of the home and say they will contact their client and see if we can remedy the problems.

  The main reason I do our final walk through 1-3 days before closing is that when a problem arises, we can suggest your lawyer not close the transaction, or, hold back $5000 to $10,000 until the seller remedies the problems.

  You would be surprised how quick problems get solved when there is a holdback!

  As a Realtor, my responsibility goes much further than helping you find and purchase a home, it is the behind the scenes work, skills and ownership we take that allows us to state ; “Not All Realtors Are The Same!”
