It is a Great Time to Buy a Home in Vancouver.
LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO FIND YOU A HOME!
Work on Your 'Wishlist'
One of the first action items I propose when meeting buyers in to take the time and come up with a wishlist.
List of needs vs wants, must haves vs nice to have. Features they cannot live without. One challenge many buyers
have is to get sidetracked by nice features they find attractive and fall in love with a home that is not what
they originally were hoping for. The challenge: buyers who buy such home outgrow the space quickly than expected
and find themselves in need to upgrage again. Sticking to a guideline list can be very valuable.
Mortgage & Financing Decision
In order to make the right financing choice, it is important to understand what a mortgage is and what type of mortgage options available. Few questions I address in the initial meeting: how much of a down payment should a buyer put down. What type of mortgage options available to them. What type (if any) grants, tax breaks, and other government programs they should consider. Understanding the financing aspect reduce uncertainty and simplify the process.
Assemble a Professional Team
Purchasing a home is a complex and important decision, hence it is crucial to ensure to have professionals assisting in various areas of expertise: To name a few: first and foremost a realtor you feel comfortable with as you will go though an emotional journey. A reliable home inspector, a lawyer, a handyman or small repairs company, and an insurance broker. I have assembled such list so my clients can have professional advice every step of the way.

Legal Documents & Terms Made Easy
The purchase process requires you to be exposed to many legal documents: purchase agreement, title documents, due diligence required by law such as dealing with past underground oil tanks) and understanding the disclosure requirements by the sellers. All can be overwhelming without proper guidance. I am committed to addressing it before we begin the journey and committed to empowering you with knowledge. a full transparency is a guaranty I make to all of my clients.
Viewing Properties - Setting Tours
Now when you equip with all the necessary tools it's time to start viewing properties. I have created a system giving you access to all available listings as well as sale data. The first step would be to narrow down the options online and start visiting properties. I usually ask for positive and negative feedback from every showing in order to fine-tune the next tour and focus the search. It is the fun part of the process, I am committed to making it memorable and successful.
