Buying

When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions!  Whether or not you are actually prepared to purchase a home is the biggest one.  Finding the perfect home is not always easy and getting financial approval can sometimes be taxing.  However, once you have decided that you are ready to put in the effort required towards your home-purchasing goals, the rewards are unquestionable.

 

While at your side, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable and less time-consuming than if you took this challenge on your own.  I will help you prepare so that sellers see you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties that match your wants and desires, and help you through the untold details attending the actual purchase.

 

I keep up to date with current homes on the market and I know neighbourhood values.  With this knowledge, I can help you determine which properties are fairly priced and in good condition before the search begins. 

Your First Step

Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why.  Is it to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own?  Raise a family?  Next, think about the kind of home you would like and where you would like to be.  Be specific.  Make a list of “must haves” and “wants”.

 

Consider the area (city, suburban neighborhood, country), the community (north, south, east, or west side), and the neighbourhood (a particular school zone, recreational facilities, access to transportation, library, etc). 

 

Think about the home itself.  How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider the size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or a fixer-upper?  Think about how long you expect to live in this particular home.

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Once you’ve given some thought about why you want to buy and what you’re looking for, you will need get pre-approved with a financial institution.  This doesn’t take long and will make the purchasing of your dream home much easier.

 

Not sure who to call?  I can refer you to a mortgage professional that has a great reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.
