Hammonds Plains, NS Real Estate News

Hammonds Plains - Remax Nova Halifax Real estate   The Hammonds Plains Road is among the oldest roads in Nova Scotia.

There has been so much written lately regarding the exclusivity of the MLS system that I think the services of a REALTOR® has been lost.  What's missing?  To name but a few: Objectivity: Representing a party objectively and in the best interest of that party is extremely valuable.  Selling a house every 5-10 years does not an expert make.  Homeowners are too emotionally attached to their homes to be objective and see their homes as a product to marketed to other target markets. Online Marketing Expertise: I like to believe that I offer far more than just the ability to list a property on just one real estate site.  In fact, I post a listing on over 300 real estate sites.  I agree that MLS is a valuable tool, always has been, always will.  However, the days of just relying on one site ar...
