The ratio that a property is listed at to the price it actually sold for is called the List:Sell Ratio. This ratio in the Haliburton Highlands region in 2014 was 94.77%. MY list-sell ratio is well above the area average at 96.7%. For clients selling, that means more money in YOUR pocket.
On the other side, however, if I am solely representing you as a Buyer, My list-sell ratio is 92.9%. What does this mean? On average, my clients pay well below the area average when purchasing properties. Work with a great negotiator on your side.
