Let me help you find the luxury home of your dreams. When purchasing that perfect home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task but my 28 years of experience in listening to the wants and needs of my client, in order that I may create a good working partnership, that will allow me to help you find that perfect, luxury, dream hom!! And once you have determined, that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details in order to make the actual purchase smooth and seamless.
I always keep up to date with the current homes in the West Side Vancouver market, and I keep track of neighborhood values as well, specifically the Point Grey market, so I am prepared to react in order to help you be ready when that dream home you desire becomes available for purchase.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: 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 which location. Location, Location, Location is KEY…Be specific. Separate the “must haves” from the “want to haves.”
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider city, neighborhood, community (West Side, West Point Grey), older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, 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? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. I am also a licensed Mortgage Broker that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for my clients.
I Will Find The Right Homes For You
Once you’ve been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using our Multiple Listing Service ® system to locate them. I have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search my listings here at my website. I have access to my company’s property portfolio of predominately West Side Vancouver and Point Grey homes.
I Will Help You Every Step Of The Way
My experience then becomes most crucial as once you’ve determined that dream home to buy, I will draft the contract of purchase and sale agreement taking into consideration those conditions that will make your offer to purchase the most attractive to the seller while protecting your interests at all times. I will thoroughly discuss with you all information I can acquire about the property, price recommendations, timing for completion, and most importantly my negotiation strategy to help you successfully close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is an exceptional one.
