GET PRE-APPROVED FOR FINANCING

Do you already know how much home you can afford? There is nothing more frustrating than looking for a home, finding the perfect home, then discovering it is out of your price range. Speak with a Mortgage Broker to learn about the different financing options available to you. When you find the right lender, get the paperwork processed so you will be ready to buy once you find your perfect home. See our Financing Guide for details about understanding your purchasing power.

SIGN UP FOR PROPERTY ALERTS

In order to make an educated purchasing decision, you need to know what is available and how much it is listed for. It's easy to browse all the active listings from my website. Once you have found some homes you like, save those searches and sign up for property watch so new listings will be emailed to you as soon as they hit the market. The best homes move fast. Make sure you're on top of the available inventory at all times so you do not miss out.

AVOID MAJOR PURCHASES

In order to determine the amount of home you can afford, a lender will use your debt-to-income ratio to determine how much of your pre-tax income you spend on debt. Your debt ratio will include monthly housing costs, car payments, credit cards, student loans, and any other instalment payments you may have. If you take on more debt before buying a home it will have an impact on the amount your lender will be willing to finance.

VIEWING HOMES AND OPEN HOUSES

To keep focused on homes that are right for you, we will only view those properties that most closely meet your unique needs and interest. We will schedule times to look at homes and tour neighbourhoods so you can get an overall picture of your potential new neighbourhood. After each property viewing, we will discuss the positives and negatives about what we saw, and adjust our game plan as necessary. It is also likely that you will spend some weekend afternoons touring Open Houses on your own. We will always be in touch to talk about the properties you liked, and adjust our plans as necessary. 

The home buying process is organic, and your needs and tastes may change as we go. This is perfectly normal, and we will work together to continually assess your situation.
