  Ian Watt: Hi good afternoon it's Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. And less and less what were seeing now is for sale by owner. I think as the market is cooled off people are starting to realize what it means to hire a professional realtor. And just because you watched HGTV and you watch all the home improvement shows and how to sell your place. Preparing your home and you learn about staging and negotiating and the sales process. It doesn't make you a realtor and that for the same thing is I watch ER but I'm not gonna do your surgery and I'm not gonna do my own surgery. Just because I watch a show doesn't mean that I'm qualified to do it. So I think more than ever as the market has changed from a seller's market into balance market or maybe even to a buyer's market what we realizing now is that people are actually going out there and spending a money on the realtor because people are starting to see the value. My name is Ian Watt. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.caThank you very much and have a great day!
