Kathy and Dave are experts in their field. Using their adept knowledge, years of real estate experience, and valued resources, they help their clients save time and money in what could otherwise be an overwhelming process.

Buying a Home

There are lots of factors to consider while you’re house hunting. Which neighbourhoods have the amenities that suit your lifestyle? What kind of mortgage do you qualify for? How do you know whether you’ve found a smart purchase?

These are just some of the ways Kathy and Dave can facilitate the home buying process:

  • Screen the available homes in your neighbourhood to ensure that those you are interested in visiting all fit your criteria
  • Provide you with pertinent information on local real estate values, taxes, financing options, utility costs, services, incentives/rebates, and amenities
  • Guide you through the viewing process and shed light on features or issues that at first, are not very evident
  • Advise you on your legal and financial options
  • Recommend expert help when needed, such as home appraisal, home inspection, and contracting services
  • Manage your offers and counter-offers and use their skills and experience to negotiate the best deal possible

Preparing to Buy a Home

Before beginning to house shop, it’s important to prioritize your finances. The last thing you want is to find the perfect home, place an offer, and then get refused for a mortgage approval. A bit of preparation goes a long way in choosing the right property for you and your family and achieving your financial goals.

Once you’ve gotten your pre-approval, considered all ownership costs, and saved enough money for a down payment, make a list of your criteria. Ask yourself which of these is the most important:

  • Size (number of bedrooms, a roomy kitchen, open concept, etc.)
  • Proximity to public transportation
  • Good neighbourhood
  • Spacious yard
  • Balcony
  • Parking garage

The worst is over! The next step is easy—get in touch with a realtor! Contact Kathy and Dave.
