Buying Process

The buying process can be a bumpy road to travel.  I will be an invaluable source of knowledge, contact and advice, helping you turn the process of buying a piece of property, into a successful search for a home that is right for you.

Step 1: Consultation

I will thoroughly understand your needs and wants, and then enter into an agency relationship with you.

Step 2: The Search

Once you have established financial qualification and deposit requirements, I will arrange for you to tour and view properties that fit your criteria, until you find your dream home.

Step 3: Find your dream home

Once you have found your dream home, I will assist you in deciding on key elements of your offer: price, deposit amount, dates and subject clauses/conditions.

Step 4: The Offer 

I will prepare your written Contract of Purchase and Sale, and then present and negotiate your offer to purchase the property.

Step 5: Due Diligence

I will guide you through all the steps:  inspection, title search, Property Disclosure, environmental, home/fire insurance, review all strata documents.

Step 6: Remove Subjects

Your deposit will be submitted. You will then need to meet with a Lawyer or Notary to complete the closing documentation. Now is a good time to start to arrange for movers, transfer utilities, insurance, forward mail, etc.

Step 7: Completion

Money and Title are exchanged on your behalf.

Step 8: Possession

Receive the keys to your new home!  Congratulations!
