I believe that buying a home is all about having a solid process in place to make sure we get the best results. It’s about me understanding what you’re looking for, and then helping you along the process of buying a home so that we can find a home that is a good fit for you and the lifestyle you want to live.
If we decide we might be a good fit to work together, then here’s what you can expect from me as part of the buying process:
1We’ll dig deep into what you’re looking for
I want to know about you, your family, and the type of lifestyle you want to live. The more I know, the better for both of us. Having a solid understanding of what you’re looking for will set us in the right direction when it comes to beginning our search.
2We’ll make sure everything is in place
Before you buy, you’ll want to have a few things in place, like getting pre-approved for a mortgage and knowing what you can really comfortably afford.
3We’ll talk about the expenses you might not know about
When you buy a home, the cost goes above just the purchase price; there are a lot of other fees that you’ll need to consider, like lawyer fees, provincial taxes, and maybe HST. Don’t worry about that though. We’ll discuss all of the fees ahead of time so that there aren’t any nasty surprises at the end that you’re not prepared for.
4We’ll start our search
The search might begin online, or in person; either way, we’ll begin looking for a home that fits you perfectly. In some cases, we won’t get there on the first try, and we may have to look at a lot of properties for you to find ‘the one’. But, ‘the one’ is out there. And if we have to look at a lot of properties to find it, that’s just fine with me.
If you’re thinking about buying a home, I’d love to help. Let’s talk today about how we can make buying your first home a successful reality.
