Buying a home is an exciting and emotional time for many people. Before you start shopping for your home, let’s give some thought to the lifestyle you want, the features you need, the price range, and the neighborhoods you prefer.
These are matters I love discussing as it’s my passion to see you in your dream home. I strongly recommend signing up for some automatic updates to get a feel for the market you’ll be buying in.
Use the Property Finder service to get a sneak preview of new listings on the market before other buyers with the “Preferred Access” service. I want my valued clients to be confident every step of the way. When you sign up for automatic updates, you’ll benefit from:
- FULL MLS® access.
- Updates hourly and directly from the real estate board.
- Access to additional special listing information.
- Ability to search for foreclosures, estate sales, assumable mortgages, and new homes.
- Ability to monitor status and price changes for the listings you are interested in.
If you are a first-time home buyer, get ready for an exiting ride! As a new buyer, there are many programs and services you should be aware of such as the first-time Home Buyers’ Plan.
You will likely need to get a mortgage; please contact me so I can help find you a mortgage specialist that can cater to your specific needs. These services are all free of charge and can save you a fortune—it has for me. Please refer to my Financing section for more information.
The home purchasing process can be tricky. I’m here to advise you on negotiating the best terms when preparing an offer.
Benefits of buyer agency
The seller and buyer, depending upon the type of agreement with the REALTOR®, may not be represented equally. In fact, unless otherwise stated, the agent represents the seller in transactions for the sale of a home. This agent, as part of his or her fiduciary duty, must ensure the seller’s position is protected throughout the entire process.
A buyer’s agency ensures you get an equal amount of representation and ultimately the best deal for you.
It’s important to understand your options so that you don’t unintentionally accept less representation than you deserve. When you are looking to make the biggest investment of your life, it makes sense to have exclusive representation.
