There is a right way and a "not so great" way to go about buying a property. The right way will be much easier to do and be far less frustrating. The right way will put you in control of the process and create the end result you were hoping for when you started the process. But there is a catch with the right way - you need an expert guiding your way....and that's ME!!
Searching www.realtor.ca is a great way to clarify what is important to you in your purchase. Checking out prices in different neighbourhoods, confirming school locations and amenities will certainly help you determine styles of homes and particular areas you prefer. But you can do all of that without my help. I want you to have more options. Here's what I will be doing: Looking at FSBOs properties (For Sale By Owner), EXPIRED properties (homes listed in the past that are no longer on the market) and door-knocking unlisted homes in your neighbourhoods of choice. When you finally decide to move forward with your purchase, you will feel secure that no stone has been left unturned! I will then help you understand and construct a superior offer that will impress the Seller.
Negotiations now begin and this is where my thirty years of experience will bring about results that leave you secure (and thrilled) with your purchase. I will be by your side through the entire due diligence period and the closing process so you are never left wondering what is happening or what is coming next.
