Finding the right home that will meet your needs can be an overwhelming task, when trying to do it alone. It is helpful to have a trusted professional on your side, looking out for your interests. I will sit down with you and talk about your goals. Where do you see yourself in two years, five years, and so on. The answers to these questions will help me to
understand the true reason why you want to purchase a new home. Additionally, it will allow me to help you achieve those goals you set for yourself.
There are a number of factors that go into finding the right home for you. If you are looking for a condo, you want to decide what size of space do you want, exposure, floor within the building? Is parking and outdoor space important to you? Are there rental and or pet restrictions? Is the strata well run?
I will go through all of the strata documents with you. I will walk you through the Property Disclosure Statement and Title to the Property, explaining what it all means. I will review 2 years of Strata minutes and Building Engineers and Depreciation Reports with you, outlining the positive and negative features I believe you should be aware of. I will
review the Strata’s financials, making sure that you are purchasing in an economically healthy building. I will point out what Bylaws and Rules are important to you and what you will need to know. I will ensure the square footage of the home is what is marketed, ensuring that our expertly negotiated price per square foot is accurate.
In any building we look at, there will be something coming up. It is a matter of determining what that is, and making sure that we are compensating for it in our purchase price, terms and conditions.
If you are purchasing a detached home, while space will always be an important factor, you will also want to know about the City Zoning plans and future developments to come to the neighborhood. You will want to make sure there is no underground storage. If there is one, we will determine what is the next strategic step? We will also contact City Hall and find out what can be built on the property. Whether you are looking to develop the property or not, it may play a factor as a future investment.
Prior to even getting in the car and looking at homes, I will strategically research the properties. When we sit down for our initial consultation, outlining your goals and dreams, I will explain this further.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of how I will help you purchase your home and investment. Purchasing property is not only one of the largest investments you will likely make in your life, it is also a very emotional one. I will be there to support you and act as an impartial arbitrator between your head and your heart. I want to build a relationship with you that will last. I believe in honesty, integrity and supporting you in achieving your goals and dreams with amazing results.
