Buying A New Home


You have decided to purchase a home, or are thinking about buying one. Today, the dream of home ownership is closer than ever. Often home buyers are afraid such goals are not affordable. However, unlike the past, today’s homeowners have as much choice in financing options as they do in potential homes.

Let me help you every step of the way and find the house or condo that is right for you. Purchasing a home can be emotional, time-consuming and a complex process. With my knowledge and expertise 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.

Here are some of the steps that I will take to find your Perfect Home.

Determine Your Wants and Needs.

This is the single most important step. By asking you a series of questions I will establish what you are looking for. We would consider, location, neighborhood facilities, commute to work, transportation, day care, affordability and etc.

  • How large does the house have to be for my family to be comfortable?
  • Which city or neighborhoods do you prefer to live?
  • How many rooms and bathrooms are required?
  • How important is having a house close to work, local amenities, public transportation?
  • Are there special considerations required for hobbies, guests, potential additions to the family, physical limitations or disabilities?
  • The answers to these questions will help you not only determine the type of house that will be the best for you, and also eliminate viewing houses that don’t fit your criteria. Throughout the buying process I will maintain your confidentiality and represent your best interest.

    Loan Pre-Qualification

    Once your needs are specified, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company or financial institution. This step will show you how much you can afford.

    Home Shopping

    Once you have been pre-qualified and the price range is determined, we can start shopping for your new home. I will use every available method to locate a property that matches your search parameters. This will include properties listed with our office, offered through other real estate companies, as well as unlisted properties. We utilize all means of media such as our online presence and also print material.

    Once you have found the perfect home for your family and yourself, I will be there to help you complete your financing and home inspection. I put it in my best ability to make sure the entire transaction is handled very professionally and with no-hassle as possible. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant and cost-efficient.
