Toronto Realtors are the envy of the world

As the fifth largest city in North Amer­ica, Toronto has many char­ac­ter­is­tics for which it is noted. Our city is home for exam­ple, to a num­ber of world-renown cul­tural events; we have the world’s sev­enth largest stock exchange and a uni­ver­sity that ranks amongst the top ten globally.

You may not be aware though, that Toronto also has a sys­tem for the pur­chase and sale of prop­erty that is admired inter­na­tion­ally. In many coun­tries, there is sim­ply no equiv­a­lent to the Mul­ti­ple List­ing Ser­vice, a sophis­ti­cated com­puter data­base of sold, expired and active list­ings accessed only by your Real­tor.

As a pro­fes­sional asso­ci­a­tion of more than 29,000 Real­tors, the Toronto Real Estate Board oper­ates our city’s Mul­ti­ple List­ing Ser­vice, Toron­toMLS, and in doing so, sup­ports Greater Toronto Real­tors‘ efforts to offer you out­stand­ing service.

Estab­lished nearly 80 years ago, Toronto Real Estate Board has evolved through the decades to offer a range of ser­vices to its Mem­bers that include sta­tis­ti­cal updates on the mar­ket, Con­tin­u­ing Edu­ca­tion ses­sions and access to land reg­istry, assess­ment and new con­struc­tion data.

You Real­tor in turn, uses these and other tools to offer you pro­fes­sional counsel.

If, for exam­ple, you intend to buy a home you can be reg­is­tered in the Toronto Real Estate Board’s Buyer Reg­istry Ser­vice. It is a cen­tral repos­i­tory in which your Real­tor can reg­is­ter your hous­ing pref­er­ences, pro­vid­ing their name as the con­tact. By reg­is­ter­ing your cri­te­ria in the BRS, your Real­tor can get early noti­fi­ca­tion from other Real­tors when prop­er­ties match­ing your pref­er­ences become avail­able. You can also receive nightly noti­fi­ca­tions sent through the Toron­toMLS prospect match function.

If you are plan­ning on sell­ing, your Real­tor can use MLS data to pro­vide a com­par­a­tive mar­ket analy­sis that will help you estab­lish a real­is­tic ask­ing price for your home. In addi­tion to list­ing your home on Toron­toMLS, your Real­tor can adver­tise gen­eral infor­ma­tion about your home on pub­lic web­sites like Toron​to​Re​alEstate​Board​.com, Real​tor​.ca, your Real­tor‘s own web­site and those of other real estate pro­fes­sion­als through for­mal agree­ments facil­i­tated by the Toronto Real Estate Board.

While their pri­mary focus is help­ing you achieve a smooth and finan­cially healthy trans­ac­tion, Greater Toronto Real­tors work to make our city a bet­ter place in many other ways as well.

Real­tors advo­cate your inter­ests on key leg­isla­tive issues like prop­erty taxes, sales tax har­mo­niza­tion and land trans­fer taxes. They make direct con­tri­bu­tions to GTA com­mu­ni­ties as well, pro­vid­ing REALTORS Care Foun­da­tion grants to 20 shelter-related char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tions this year alone. They also offer a help­ing hand to GTA school­child­ren, through the Children’s Break­fast Pro­gram, a joint ven­ture between the Toronto Real Estate Board  and the Toronto Dis­trict School Board’s Toronto Foun­da­tion for Stu­dent Suc­cess, they help to pro­vide nutri­tious break­fasts to 1900 chil­dren in 11 dif­fer­ent schools every week.

These are just a few of the rea­sons that the work of Greater Toronto Real­tors is so highly regarded around the world.
