Buying - Helping you find your new home

First-time buyer? Moving cities? Upgrading? Downsizing?

I'm a big believer in the power of knowledge, preparation and processes. Manage your stress by making sure you understand the entire buying process, devising a personalized step-by-step home search/purchasing plan and being aware of all the little things that can come up along the way.

I've been helping people buy homes for over 15 years, know the Greater Vancouver market, understand current values and the benefits each neighborhood offers and will help you focus your search and find good value.

Scroll down for a brief overview of the buying process (or contact me now by clicking here):

Your First Step

Step #1: 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 haves" from the "want to haves."

Zero in on your target. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities); and community services (such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). 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. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long 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.

I Will Find The Right Homes For You

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service and my professional network.

Let me use my experience to negotiation you a fair price, prepare you a strong contract, help you complete your financing and inspections, and help you close on the transaction. My top priorities are to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful, that you get good value and are well protected by a strong contract.
