It's time to purchase the home of your dreams

Buying a place is undoubtedly a significant financial investment. For some,

it may be the biggest purchase of their life. Learn about the process as much

as possible before making a move. Here are some questions to think about.

Neighbourhood

Is your desired neighbourhood actually the most suitable for you?

Not only do our agents come with a breadth of knowledge in real estate, but each

one specializes in a specific neighbourhood and area. Immediately they can tell you

the average price for homes in your desired neighbourhood, whether it’s a good time

to buy depending on current market trends, or if there are other attractive alternatives.

They really know a lot—use their knowledge to your advantage.

Finances

Have you figured out the finances?

You'll find yourself getting caught with questions like: Based on your income,

factoring all monthly expenses and savings, what would be the realistic price

range of homes to look at? How much down payment are you going to make?

How do you get pre-approved for a mortgage? What's the best mortgage option

based on your situation?

And the list goes on. Don't get overwhelmed, because you have us. We have

connections with financial advisors that'll work alongside you to explain everything,

get you the best interest rates and deals on loan approvals, and come up with the

the best plan of action.

Needs vs wants

What are your needs versus wants? Are they achievable within your budget?

Most times people can get carried away with their want-list. We're here to keep you on track,

analyze your situation, and narrow down exactly which houses best match your criteria and

budget. Sometimes we know what you want better than you know it. It's true.

Negotiations

Are you ready for all the negotiations, counter-offerings, and back-and-forth

communication?

Actually, that's all on us. Rest assured you've got a sharp, fluent, and persuasive negotiator

on your side, that'll get the place you want for the price you want it.

Accepting offer

What happens after the seller accepts the offer?

Before sealing the deal, we recommend contacting a home inspector for a thorough home

inspection, as underlying structural damages aren't always visible, and a legal professional

for the closing paperwork. Again, don't stress about seeking out these professionals yourself.

We have connections with all facets of this business that'll take care of everything for you.

Closing

What's left before you get the keys?

Before the process is complete, there are final closing costs. Our agents are on top of them,

and will inform you of the final amount and when it's due.

After purchasing

What if you move in and encounter problems with the strata or the property

itself? Can you still contact your agent?

Please do. Just because the transaction is over, doesn't mean our relationship ends here.

Call us anytime—you have our number. We promise it won't go straight to voicemail.
