Buy Your Home

Hello Residential Buyers!

Buying a condo, house or small multiplex (duplex, triplex, up to 6-7plex)

I have been through hundreds of inspections and has seen thousands of properties.

We meet and develop a relationship to see if we are the right fit to move forward. If we are both comfortable and happy, I will go over every aspect of the buying process with you and work on your wish list. My job is to book all the visit. It’s important for us to see the property together so I can analyze the structure and to accurately assess its true value.

One of the best values that I bring to the table is knowing how a building works and the cost of repair. After attending hundreds of inspections and doing years of personal renovations, I consider myself talented in knowing major aspects of a building. Right away I can tell you if you’ll need to invest money in brick or foundation repair for example. A professional building inspection is extremely important after an accepted offer, however I may be able to notice things right off the bat that will save you time and money.

From A-Z, I will take care of timelines, problem solving, obstacles and other factors that might relate to the offer. My goal is to make this process for you as easy and stress free as possible.

  • We will be reviewing together the sold comparable in the area.
  • We will set timelines and decide on conditions.
  • Look at inclusions and exclusions (usually they are in the listing)
  • Decide on move-in date/notary signing.
  • Review and sign their declaration report. Becomes part of the promise to purchase.

Submitting offer:

  • Everything from here goes really fast…don’t expect to get much sleep over the excitement!
  • I submits all the documents necessary to the mortgage broker for the banks approval.

Property is now SOLD

  • Once all conditions are fulfilled, the listing broker sends all the documents to the notary and the property is considered sold.
  • Your insurance company will send a letter to the notary explaining that you are fully covered as of the day of signing. No letter, no signing.
  • Now you wait until the signing. Nothing to do. Waiting, waiting, waiting…doing drive bys…checking out your new place from the outside…feeling like a stalker.

At the Notary:

  • You’ll go in a week before the closing to sign your mortgage with the notary.
  • The official closing takes about 45 minutes. The sellers will be there as well.
  • You’ll receive the keys.
  • Good idea to exchange contact information.
  • Any warranty or receipts that you asked for will be given here.
