Buying a Home
We guide you through the entire purchase process right from an initial meeting and personal consultation through to your possession day. We possess the expertise and resources to help you through your transaction; making the entire process more enjoyable and less time-consuming. We want to ensure you purchase a home that fits both your lifestyle and your budget.
When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions, the primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, we will streamline your property search by helping you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, prepare and educate you throughout the offer process and guide you through the myriad of details surrounding the actual purchase and possession.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done in person, over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
If you are not already working with a mortgage representative we have top quality professionals we can refer out to you that we have worked with and have excellent feedback on from our clients and and who offer a wide array of property financing options.
We Will Find The Right Homes For You
Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, we can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them.
We will create a professional property search based on the minimum amenities and features in your price range that will deliver property matches directly to your email inbox, saving you time in locating the homes that best match your specifications. You can even search our listings here at our website.
We Will Help You Every Step Of The Way
Once you have found a home that fits your needs we provide you with the information you need to move forward with an offer; property history, comparable sold and active listings and community and market trends and analysis. We make sure you have all the facts to determine the proper market value of the property you are interested in.
We will skillfully negotiate on your behalf and work towards the best price and most favourable terms and conditions. We will assist you with all the facets of closing the deal; property inspections, title search and review, Real Property Reports, legal referrals and walk-throughs.
Our top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.
