Ian Watt video blogs about how CondoGo.com Proves Powerful Over Discount Real Estate Brokerages as www.condogo.com took over a listing at the same price as it was listed by a discounted brokerage for 7 months and sold it in 4 days - in a market not as strong as 7 months ago with many competing listings in the same building.

Ian Watt: Hi, Good afternoon! It's Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. Super excited because this is what is all about. CondoGo.com we listed up this place that have been listed with the discount brokerage for seven months, didn't sell. Pretty awesome, we listed up four days later I get an accepted offer and it's sold. Now, I know that the market has changed in not in our favor and there eight different listings just like this one in the same building for sale. But it goes to show you price is one thing but the other thing that is important is offering in a great incentive for the buyers realtor. When there's eight different choices there the buyers realtor place a big part in the decision. I hate to say it but offering a great commission matters. We take a hit on CondoGo.com on the listing side but we don't discount the buyers side and today it made a big difference. My name is Ian Watt and if you have any questions. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
