What is a mortgage pre-approval? How much of a downpayment is required? Is now a good time to buy? There’s lots to consider when buying a home. To help new and first-time home buyers get a foot in the door, RE/MAX is launching The RE/MAX House Call contest.


The social media campaign runs from Oct. 18 until Nov. 21, 2017, inviting Canadians to submit their burning real estate questions using the hashtag #AskREMAX. Select questions will receive a video answer each week from one of RE/MAX’s reputable agents anywhere in Canada.

Submissions will also be entered for a chance to win a weekly $200 Visa gift card. Whether you’re fixing up to sell, or getting ready to buy, we hope this will help get you started!

“We are excited to connect our real estate expertise with homeowners—and the next generation of young, first-time homebuyers—in a way they can relate to and trust,” says Christopher Alexander, Regional Director, RE/MAX INTEGRA Ontario-Atlantic Canada.

Recognizing that buying or selling a home is a significant emotional decision, we wanted to put a more personal touch into how agents connect with you about your questions. Video answers are the perfect way to add a face to the information received, and reaffirms both our commitment to customers as well as the value a qualified realtor brings to the table.

After November 21, you’ll still be able to communicate with RE/MAX professionals via a recently launched online chat feature, Ask RE/MAX. The tool lets you send your questions directly to the RE/MAX listing agent – and get answers on demand!

In an era where millennial home buyers prefer text to talk, videos have taken over news feeds and marketing to a moving target is the challenge, The RE/MAX House Call reiterates the need for face-to-face connections, but with a digital twist.

The RE/MAX House Call was created as part of our recent brand refresh. The updated balloon logo and typeface, unveiled on Aug. 21, were designed specifically for digital and mobile platforms, aligning RE/MAX with the modern tastes of next-generation buyers.
