So you’ve decided to buy a home!
It’s very exciting to purchase your own home, and it can be a great financial decision. The first step is to meet with a mortgage professional to determine if purchasing a home is the right financial decision for you. If it is, then you can discuss what the monthly payments will look like, and how much you can safely afford.
Now you need to think about where you want to live and what kind of home you want. It’s great to have some ideas in mind before you meet with me, so that we can narrow down your list of ‘must haves’ and ‘would be great if’s’. I can set you up on an automatic search that will deliver home options to your email inbox. You can select homes that are your favourite, and even keep notes on the properties as reminders! Then comes the fun part: house hunting! We will go look at homes and determine which is the right one for you and your family.
Once you find the home of your dreams the purchasing process begins! This can be a complex and stressful time. There may be lengthy negotiations between you and the seller, unique conditions and terms that are needed to protect your interests… I will be there helping you and ensuring your questions are answered and your needs met.
I know how stressful and overwhelming the home buying process can be, especially if you are a first time buyer. My priority is to be there for my clients, from start to finish.
