Let me help you every step of the way… remember, Buyers do not pay realtor fees!
When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a tiring and complex process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
Assisting you every step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending to the actual purchase.
Your First Step
The first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you’d like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the “must have” from the “want to have”.
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (Vancouver Westside or Eastside, Downtown Vancouver, North Shore, Burnaby, etc), neighbourhood (older and settled or sparkling new, a particular school catchment, recreational facilities and community services such as stores, transportation, day care, entertainment, library). Are there any upcoming infrastructure projects or rezoning being planned? Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property (attached or detached). Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. How long do you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
