The 5 Step Home Buying Methodology

Step 1: Initial Meet-Up

We'll have a short telephone conversation or online video chat to determine your needs and see if we can work together.  

Step 2: Discovery

We'll introduce you to our Lender and get your ducks in a row. This will allow you to know all the various financing options available to you and this will give you the confidence you will need in purchasing a home today. Use the following mortgage calculator to get an estimate of your monthly payment.

Step 3: Viewing

Here we'll set you up with your own customized search. This will allow you to weed out all the homes that will not do. The bad homes hide the good ones. You will also have access to homes that are not currently on the market for additional choices. 

Step 4: Contract

Once you've found a home that you like, We'll prepare a Comparative market analysis to determine the homes true value. From there we'll advise you on the best negotiating strategy to get your offer accepted.

Step 5: Completion

This is where all our hard work pays off. We work along side you with the due diligence process of the terms and conditions of the contract from the inspection all the way to handing you the keys.
