The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) enforces the rules that real estate salepeople, brokers and brokerages must follow. We protect the public interest through a fair, safe and informed marketplace.

Looking to Move?

Work with your sales person so you can mke informed decisions.  Ask questions, conduct research and read everthing before you sign.

Buying a home?

You’re also buying a place in a community.  Before you make an offer, visit the neighborhood at different times of day and talk to neighbours

New home budget

A home’s purchase price is only one of the costs of home ownership.  Include all closing and moving expenses in your budget.

Open House Safety

Prepping for an open house is about more than beautifying your home.  Remember, privacy and security are just as important.

Love those kitchen appliances?

They may not be included with the house.  If you want that stainless-steel fridge, ask your representative to note it in your written offer.

Home inspection

Love those shiney fixtures and glossy finishes?

Don’t stop there.  Have a qualified home inspector check the home’s structure and systems.

Review Contracts

So much paperwork, so little time?

Review contracts with your real estate rep to ensure you understand everything before you sign.
