Real Estate Companies Can Now Publish House Sale Data

A recent Supreme Court ruling will make house sale prices more accessible to the public.


The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), the country’s largest real estate board with about 50,000 members, has been fighting for seven years to prevent its members from making sold data public, citing privacy concerns for their members' clients.


The majority of REALTORs®, like myself, believe that providing this information is crucial to educating our clients and ensuring they have the whole picture whether making the decision to sell or in selecting a home to buy.


Buying or selling a home is one of the most significant financial transactions a person will ever make. It’s key to ensure that you have all of the information that is available to you to make the right decision for you and for your family.


While TREB works on figuring out a way to conform to the Supreme Court's ruling, you still have a key resource to call upon - me - your REALTOR®. As part of a complimentary Current Market Evaluation (CMA), I will provide you with the sold data for homes similar to yours in your area, but beyond that, I will personally analyze the home listings to ensure they are the best comparables to arrive at a price that will be not only attractive to potential Buyers but will get you the most return on your investment possible.


I’ll also review cost-effective improvements you could make to maximize your return on investment before we put your house on MLS.


There is so much more that goes into pricing a home for sale than just picking a number out of a hat. Working with a professional who has years of experience in pricing, negotiations, listing, selling and working with Buyers can make all the difference between having a positive real estate experience or leaving money on the table by making a costly mis-step along the way.


If you’ve got questions about this or anything else real estate related, reach out to me. I’d love to help you out!
