We will get to know each other. Once you’re ready to work with us, we’ll go over the different the pros and cons and your purchasing power in your top communities while making a list of your lifestyle priorities and deal breakers and put a plan together.
Unless your purchase is all-cash, we will recommend a few effective lending options for you to begin the process of getting pre-qualified. You’ll dive into the paperwork—compiling your pay stubs, tax returns, and T4s among others. The lender will determine your purchasing power and conduct a full financial review.
We will dig in and get to know your deal makers and deal-breakers in what you’re looking for in a home. We use our insider network we’ve been building since 1987, monitor off-market sites and the MLS and will email you the moment a home matches your wishlist. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
This is where the journey home really gets fun! We will take a virtual video tour of any home that meets your criteria, do live FaceTime tour, and/or go to local open houses with you. We will discuss various negotiation strategies for making an offer on your dream home.
We will discuss various strategies and alternatives for putting an offer together on the home that is perfect for you. You should be prepared for some negotiations, if the seller should come back with a counteroffer. We’ll walk you through the various scenarios and how we’ll handle them. Once the offer is accepted, you’ll need to get your financing in order!
The seller has accepted the offer, and the home goes through an appraisal and inspection period. We will suggest a few inspectors and insurance sources that many of our clients have been happy with, and also go over various other inspections you might want to consider. These are the final steps before your home is yours for good!
After review of any reports received, there may be some last-minute negotiations to go over. Once the funds are released from escrow, you’ll sign the final documents because it’s time to close on your home!
Congratulations, you’re now a homeowner—it’s time to celebrate this special time in your life!
