Prior to the Internet, Buyers used to get in the back seat of a real estate agent's car and go on a tour of homes. The agent would have his/her MLS® catalogue of homes which he was not allowed to give Buyer's a copy of. REALTORS® controlled MLS® information. This is simply not the way it happens anymore.
Nowadays with the Internet, consumers are empowered and in much more control of their new home search. Over 85% of Canadians who search for a home start their search on the Internet. Whether Buyers are looking for properties themselves on REALTOR.ca, or being automatically emailed MLS® properties directly from their REALTOR®, or other house hunting activities, nowadays Buyer's often know as much or more about their particular market and the homes for sale in it as their REALTOR® does.
Buyers have access to MLS® and can check www.REALTOR.ca 20 times a day, and their agent will not be doing that, no matter who they are. These changes in technology and Buyer behaviour created the opportunity for the concept of One Percent Realty to flourish.
When a Buyer sees a home that meets their criteria and is their dream home they do not ask "How much commission is being paid here." It's not of concern to the potential Buyer. The Buyer is concerned with number of bedrooms, bathrooms, location, schools, and obviously the price. Our listings are displayed everywhere that all the other listings are. If you are a buyer looking in a given neighbourhood in a given price range (which is basically all of them), then you will want to see every listing in that neighbourhood in your price range. With the Buyer now in the driver's seat as a much more sophisticated consumer the real estate marketplace had changed forever.
