Let us help you every step of the way.
When buying a home in New Westminster, Burnaby, Coquitlam or anywhere in Greater Vancouver, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
My team and I will ensure that you enjoy the process of purchasing a home, less time-consuming and overwhelming by guiding you each step of the way. We will help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, arrange showings, identify any problems or issues, structure an appropriate offer and negotiate the best price for your dream home.
We know the current Real Estate market in the Greater Vancouver area and we will help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to 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 are interested in and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate your “wants” from the “needs”, but also stay realistic and open-minded with the budget.
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighbourhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighbourhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other 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 are planning to live in this particular home.
