Overheard: "I get more litigation work from private deals gone wrong..."

I saw this on twitter this morning from a Saskatoon lawyer.

Brad raises an interesting point.

Digging a bit deeper, name one thing for me that you didn't become better at with practice and experience. I can't think of anything. At least anything that matters much.

I reflect back on my very first job. I washed dishes at Bonanza Steak House before I was out of school. I'll never forget those busy dinner rushes and how the dishes would pile up behind me as I struggled to catch up. During my first few shifts, buckets of dishes flowed off of the on-ramp and down the hallway. It was hot, messy and fast-paced. It took some time to get a system down and to reach a point where I could push those dishes through as fast as the busboys could carry them in. I eventually became a pretty good dishwasher but it wasn't automatic.

Anyone can wash dishes but the guy who has been around a while will do it faster, better and in a more cost-effective manner than the new man on the line.

The same thing applies to selling houses and everything else for that matter. Anyone can do it. The question is, how well can they do it and at what cost?

If you're the least bit concerned about trading what's likely your most valuable asset on your own, we'd like to talk to you and provide a complimentary consultation to explain precisely how we'll help you meet your goals at a reasonable cost with as few inconveniences as possible. All of my contact info is here.

For our fee, we'll utilize the experience we've gained through hundreds of real estate sales to ensure that your home is well presented to the largest number of buyers we can reach with the objective of generating stronger offers for you.

At the same time, we'll give you our best advice on dealing with buyers, agents, offers, counter-offers, amendments, contract terms, conditions, deposits, adjustments, representations, warranties, disclosures, inspectors and inspections, appraisals and appraisers, municipal compliance issues, costs, mortgages, closings and disbursements with the objective of moving you through this experience with less stress and worry.

Most importantly, we'll put our expertise to work to keep you out of court.

If you decide to go it alone I won't hold it against you but allow me to recommend a good lawyer just in case. Brad Jamieson has a lot of experience litigating on behalf of private real estate traders. I would expect he's gotten very good at it.

I’m always happy to answer your Saskatoon real estate questions.  All of my contact info is here. Please feel free to call or email.
