Finding the Right Home for You
Purchasing a home can be the single most important purchase in your life, and we are here to help guide you through every step of the process, with great experience and professionalism!
Our goal is to work together with you to take you from viewing properties, to negotiating offers, to getting the property closed and beyond.
Let's take a minute to go over the buying process step by step.
DEFINING YOUR NEEDS
The first step is to sit down with you and discuss exactly what you are looking for. Who will be living in the home, what are your needs, do you need to be close to transit, or certain amenities, are you looking for a renovated home or are you willing to make changes when you move in? The more we know about what you really need, the better we can help you find the right home.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR FINANCES
With interest rates so low, there has never been a better time to purchase a home! Now is the time to talk to our lender about getting pre-approved. This works to your benefit for a number of reasons:
a) You will understand exactly what your monthly expenses and payments will be.
b) We can narrow down the search to only include properties that will fit within your budget
c) Once we find the right home for you we can move forward and purchase it without having to worry about whether or not you will be approved for financing.
Finding the right home is a team effort. The great news is: all of our services are really free to you, as our commission is paid by the seller! All we ask in return is your commitment to work exclusively with us.
When going out to see homes, it's important that you are completely open and honest with us. We didn't build the house, so there is no reason not to give us your true opinion! The more we know about what you are looking for the better we can help you.
WRITING UP THE OFFER
Once we have found the right home for you it is imperative that we work quickly to get the offer submitted as soon as possible. It never fails, you find a home you love, and another buyer feels the same way!
Our goal is to get the home for you with the best possible terms and conditions for you! Our job is to represent you every step of the way and to look out for your best interest.
Once the offer is accepted, it is up to us to remove any conditions such as financing or inspection. We will refer you to a great home inspector who will go through the home with a fine tooth comb to ensure you know exactly what you are purchasing.
We will assist you with details involved in closing the sale, including referring you to lawyers, insurance agents, etc. Once the property has closed we can also refer you to various sub-trades such as painters, plumbers, roofers, contractors, interior designers... what ever you need to make your home your own!
