So you want to buy a home…

Buyers Consultation

This is our first chance to get to know each other prior to setting out on our search for your new home. There is no obligation and no charge for this service. It will however, give me a chance to explain the Buyer Agency Relationship and the nature of the services I will provide. Understanding agency will clearly outline what our obligations are to each other and hopefully give you the comfort of knowing your best interests are protected in a future transaction.

When you are ready to proceed we will identify search criteria, which will include potential neighbourhoods that interest you, a wish list, and price range. Your neighbourhood search can be very general, such as Kanata, Nepean, Barrhaven or Ottawa. They can also be more specific. For example in Kanata you can specify that you only want to look at homes in Bridlewood, Glen Cairn, Kanata Lakes, or Beaverbrook. I will then keep you informed daily, of any new listings as they become available, and address any inquires or answer questions you may have.


Home Viewing

Once you have identified a list of potential homes, we will spend some time viewing houses to see if they are a fit. Whether they are a resale home or under construction with a builder, I am pleased to represent you. While my office is located in Kanata, rest assured, I am able to show you homes throughout the Ottawa region and surrounding areas.

Ready To Make an Offer

Once you have found your dream home we will prepare an offer to purchase. I will provide you with honest and straightforward advice about your negotiating options. My intent is to provide you with the tools to be confident in making an offer. You should never feel pressured and the decision to decline, reject or accept a counter offer, will always be yours.

The Offer is Accepted

Once your offer is accepted, you are one step closer to realizing your real estate goal. All the necessary documents will be forwarded to your mortgage representative for approval. I recommend booking a building inspection and I would be happy to attend with you to ensure everything is conducted smoothly. This is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the property, and potential maintenance that may be required.

We will ensure that all conditions are fulfilled within the agreed deadlines and that documents are forwarded to your Lawyer, who will represent you to close the transaction.

Once the Sold Sign is up on your dream home
it’s time to celebrate!
