You Real Estate Agent has access to the history price that the houses has been sold for. Unless if the house was sold by the owner and outside of the Realtor.ca's involvement, the sold prices are saved in their database.
If you are a seller, you will need this information to assess how much you want to sell the house, the minimum amount you want to sell the house for and whether you should wait for a better price.
If you are a buyer, this information determines what similar houses has been sold for, so you will know if you are overpaying or not.
You Real Estate Agent may be reluctant to reveal this information because it is designed to protect and deter you from making the transaction. Your Real Estate Agent would rather convince you the house is a good price regardless of whatever the price is.
You Real Estate may pretend to take a long time to give you such valuable information to look like he is working hard for you. t really should take less than 15 minutes to access the real estate agent member's site, put in some conditions and the site returns information relating to the house prices. If the Real Estate Agent does take a long time like a day, simply fire him. There is nothing more important than this kind of information.
