Evaluate Your Needs
House, condo, loft, studio: what type of property best suits your needs, and in what neighbourhood? Should you buy new, or renovate? How many bedrooms do you want? How many bathrooms? Do you prefer a small or large yard? Discussing these issues will help determine the features that are essential in successfully moving forward with your search. This is an important step, as it allows you to begin assessing the financial aspect of your purchase.
Determine Your Budget
I can help you get started in drawing up a budget, primarily to determine whether it is consistent with your objectives and current real estate market conditions. This will encourage you to take the first step in obtaining a pre-approved loan from your financial institution. This crucial step accelerates the buying process and gives you credibility with sellers. You are now ready to begin visiting properties.
The Property Search
Start your property search in good company. While you can explore the largest number of homes for sale and for rent in Québec by yourself online, I will provide you the expertise to ensure that you buy your home at a fair price. To help you, I will access the computerized Centris® system, a highly effective tool that allows brokers to sort through all of the properties for sale by a real estate broker and will then present you with a relevant and varied selection of properties that match your criteria, and from these options you can choose the properties you want to visit. We will identify together the advantages and disadvantages of each home or condominium you visit.
I will help you prepare the offer to purchase, will accompany you throughout the entire process and act as your negotiator. Once your offer has been accepted, we will explore what steps need to be taken in order to continue the purchase process: choosing a certified building inspector or soil analysis specialist if necessary, finalizing the financing, etc. If you sell your home at the same time, we will also coordinate the transfer of titles at the notary’s office.
Ready to Make an Offer?
From the offer to purchase to negotiations, from the choice of a notary and qualified inspector to the signature of the deed of sale, buying a home is a complex process. I will be your valuable ally in successfully completing your journey to home-ownership, thanks to my knowledge, network and experience. For many buyers, simplifying the steps involved in buying a property is an extremely valuable service.
