BUYING

I understand the relationship between homebuyers and agents must be based on trust, mutual goals and understanding—this is why I always keep your interests first and foremost. The real estate process requires negotiation of complex issues and I am committed to working in your best interests. My goal is to secure the best possible price, with the most favourable terms, in the shortest period of time.

 

When searching for your home, it's important to be well informed of the real estate market. To help you with this process, consider the following factors: What features do you require in a home to satisfy your lifestyle now? Five years from now? Will your needs change? What's your budget? These are decisions only you can make, but I will do everything possible to match you with your dream home.

 

Whether you are looking for a condo for sale or a single family home, I am able to help you with all types of residential real estate transactions in the Fraser Valley and the surrounding areas.

 

Your First Step - Your first step to buying a home is to first 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'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the 'must-haves' from the 'want-to-haves'. Do you want a condo or a private piece of acreage on the in the Fraser Valley.

 

Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city vs suburban neighbourhood); community (North Delta, Surrey, Langley); a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, shopping and 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? Do you want a newer home or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you will expect to sell the home so consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

 

My Job Is To Find The Right Home For You - Once you have been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties for sale fit your needs. I have the best possible resources and communication tools available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. I have local knowledge of the Fraser Valley and the real estate know-how to point you in the right direction. I will start a personalized search based on your criteria that will allow you to have access to new listings as soon as they are uploaded to the Fraser Valley Real Estate Matrix system.

 

Once I've found the right property, I will help you negotiate the best possible price and guide you throughout the process ensuring that each of us carries out our due diligence and ultimately provide you with a satisfying home and experience in purchasing!
