1. A realtor can help with apartment hunting.
In most urban markets across Canada, realtors play a huge role not only in the buying and selling of properties, but in apartment hunting as well. According to Toronto-based real estate agent Jennifer Reyes, would-be renters can work with a realtor to explore the rental properties on REALTOR.ca, as well as additional listings that aren’t available to the general public. And-for the renter, anyway-that expert assistance is completely free! The realtor does the legwork in tracking down the rental properties that suit your pre-set criteria, and, once you’ve found the apartment of your dreams, the new landlord foots the bill. Talk about a win-win situation!
