Every real estate transaction is unique, so whether you're a first-time buyer or you've purchased a home before, this time will be different. Maybe you're buying your first condo, or your first acreage. Maybe your family situation or needs have changed since the last time you bought.
The first step in getting ready to purchase a home is to get preapproved for a mortgage. Once you're preapproved, you'll know exactly how much money you can borrow and we can discuss homes based on a budget you're comfortable with. Contact me if you need advice on reaching out to a mortgage broker or a bank.
Real Estate Wants & Needs
Buying a house could be the biggest investment you make. There's a lot to think about. One of the great things about buying in the Edmonton area is that there is a lot of choice, from property types to the character of different neighbourhoods. That also means the search can be overwhelming if you don't know exactly what you're looking for. By discussing your wants and needs, from number of bedrooms to commute times and proximity to schools, I can advise you as to what is currently on the market in your budget range.
Searching for your property match
I provide my clients with access to an online search tool that allows you to share your favourite properties with me, and I can also use that same tool to send you properties that meet your criteria as soon as they come onto the market. If you're relocating, you can be one step ahead on your home search before you even get here!
As soon as you're ready, I will arrange property viewings for homes that match your requirements. This is an opportunity for us to discuss what you like and don't like about each home so that we can hone in on properties that I am confident you will love! I will keep working with you until we find your perfect home!
Negotiating a sale
One of the best reasons I can give you for hiring me is to have me on your side when it comes to negotiating with the home sellers. I have negotiated many real estate deals for over a decade. I can advise you on what to include in your offer and deal with the seller or seller's REALTOR® on your behalf.
I will also advise you on next steps once an offer is accepted.
