At Royal LePage Team Realty, we are thrilled to announce that we are the first major brokerage in Ottawa to offer a Virtual Office Website where users can now have access to more information than was ever possible before. With a simple click, anyone with an email address will now be able to access sold prices and other information on listings that have already sold. As a brokerage, we believe in transparency and we are excited to provide this tool to our clients to aid in their real estate journey. Take some time to do some research, but when you’re ready, give us a call; as a full service brokerage with over 550 professional sales representatives, we’ve got your covered every step of the way. We work diligently to protect your interests & equity beyond the sale.
Why Wasn’t This Information Always Available?
In late 2018, the resolution of a long legal battle involving the Toronto Real Estate board by the Supreme Court, changed the rules. For privacy reasons, previously this information would have to come directly from a real estate professional and could not be found online. The courts found this practice to be anti-competitive and here we are today; your ability to make informed and educated real estate decisions has never been easier.
How Does It Work?
The process is simple and quick; with a few easy clicks, you will have access to sold information from the comfort of your own home. All you need to do is visit www.findottawarealestate.ca and provide an email address. Once this address is verified, you will have access to the sold database. Why do you need to “sign in” and what will happen to that information? Current legislation requires that we verify that the user is a real person and therefore an email address verification allows that proof. And not to worry! You will not be bombarded with marketing emails and calls, just please make sure to indicate on the form if you would like someone to reach out to you.
What Can I Find on www.findottawarealestate.ca?
As a preferred client, when you login to www.findottawarealestate.ca you will have access to both current listings as well as sold data for recent listings (this includes sold price, listings details, and the number of days the property spent on the market). So whether you are just curious or are looking to do some serious research yourself on the real estate market, this is a very useful tool.
What Can I Do With this Website?
We recognize that more and more people are starting their real estate searches from the comfort of their own homes. With more and more resources available online, it is now easier than ever to at least start the process on your own. But it is important to remember that you can’t replace the value that is provided by a full service Realtor with an online database. Whether you are buying or selling, it always pays to have a Realtor in your corner.
