Finding your perfect home that will suit your personal and financial needs for the years to come is many times a stressful one. I have just one goal - to make your home buying process as smooth as possible.
These are important considerations. Your wants or needs have to match your financial requirements. Finding the right REALTOR® is your first step.
You'll want to have a team of professionals when buying your home. You decide exactly who is on your team, but there are a few professionals without whom buying a home is nearly impossible. You will need a mortgage, so you'll have to find a lender. Also, it's a practical and useful idea to have a lawyer to protect your interests. Finally, you will need a professional REALTOR® to help you find the right home with the right financing.
Working with a professional REALTOR® is a good idea for several reasons:
Searching for a home is a time-consuming process. Working with a real estate professional will make the process much more efficient and successful.
A good real estate representative should save you time and trouble. When discussing your needs with a sales representative, be as specific as possible about the kind of home you're looking for and your price range. If you're not certain, set aside some time for your representative to help you determine these. He or she will know what is on the market, in which neighbourhoods and at what price, and can save you time by prescreening home listings - screening out the ones that don't meet your needs or budget. Then he or she can make appointments for you to see the homes that suit you.
A real estate representative can also assist you in making an Offer to Purchase. Real Estate Sales Representatives are aware of current market conditions, what price offers are realistic and what conditions to include in any offers.
