Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home, you are faced with many tough decisions! Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, but I can make it easier.
While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, and less time-consuming than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through all of the details.
YOUR FIRST STEP
Ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place to call your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To upgrade to a bigger house or downsize to something smaller? Then start thinking about where you would like to live.
Consider area (city, suburban neighbourhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west); neighbourhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services like transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Always consider how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Then think about the style of home and how much space you need. Do you require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Do you want a move in ready or would you consider a fixer-upper?
YOUR NEXT STEP: LOAN PRE-QUALIFICATION
Once you have addressed all your needs, your next step is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done through a mortgage broker or your bank.
Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for their clients.
I WILL FIND THE RIGHT HOMES FOR YOU
Once you’ve been pre-qualified by a broker or bank, I’ll set you up on an (MLS) Multiple Listing Service search to locate the best homes for you in your preferred neighbourhood and in your price range. I am always up to date with the current homes on the market, and I know neighbourhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition.
I WILL HELP YOU WITH ALL THE DETAILS
Once we’ve found the right home, I will help you financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is as painless as possible.
