When considering the purchase of a home, There are many decisions that need to be made. The first step of which is asking yourself if you’re really ready for home ownership. Finding the “perfect fit” isn’t necessarily an easy task and getting a mortgage can also be a daunting process. However, once you’ve decided, “Yes, I want to be a homeowner,” the effort required will be quickly forgotten once I find you the perfect place for you to call home.
My job is to help you make buying your home easier, more enjoyable, less time consuming & less expensive than if you undertook this endeavour on your own. I will help you find & assess properties, for sale that match your needs & wants as well as help you negotiate the myriad details that are involved in the purchase process.
It’s my business to be up-to-date on current listings & to know neighbourhood values well. This knowledge is a benefit when determining if a property is fairly priced and in good repair prior to starting your search.

“The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he’s one who asks the right questions.” ― Claude Lévi-Strauss
I’ve always like that statement; it holds true to business as well. The reasons for buying a home are varied & knowing why is key to finding the best fit. So why buy a home?
- To stop paying rent
- To raise a family or is your family expanding
- To have a place of your own
- To entertain
- To get a bigger place
Moving forward, one must also separate wants v/s needs, think about what kind of home you like & where it will be. Some considerations should be but aren’t limited to;
- Older & Settled or Brand New
- A particular school district
- Recreational facilities
- Daycare, Library
- Entertainment [Shop & Restaurants]
- Distance to Work
Think about the style of home. Is having stairs good for you or would having everything on one level be better? 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.
Once those questions have been answered you’ll need to pre-qualify for a mortgage. This can be done over the phone or on line in a matter of minutes. If you don’t know where to start; I can refer you to a professional with an excellent reputation & track record for successfully securing approval for their clients.
I will help you every step of the way; My business is your future!
