Your new neighborhood is just as important as your home. Look at schools, recreation, walking paths, etc.
We’ll take note of your requirements, set up your search, and start showing you properties that fit the bill!
Once you find something you like, we’ll walk you through how to make an offer.
Once your offer is accepted you’ll have time to complete financing, a Home Inspection, and any other conditions.
If you can meet all of your conditions it’s time to sign the waiver. This is the point of no return, if you sign the waiver the home is firm sold.
Possession Day! You did it! Welcome to your new home!
When looking for a new home it’s important to have a clear vision of your must haves.
Are you interested in single-family, condo or townhome?
Do some research of what types of homes offer what that will help narrow down your search area.
Do you need a car to get to work? Are you going to be taking transit? Do a test run before committing to a certain area.
Older neighborhoods are great for their charm and character, but often older homes require more repairs, newer developments have modern finishes and less repairs needed.
What would you like to see in your new community? Is it more coffee shops? Events? Closer to the transit? Whatever it is write it down and choose areas that have those features.
How important is it to you to be walking distance to things like schools, shopping, and groceries? Think of what you want or need to be close to.
Everyone has wants but have you considered the things you don’t want? If you hate noise you might want to steer clear of the Saddledome area for example.

Generally the buyer’s agent is compensated by the listing realtor and the sellers. There are some rare exceptions where you might be responsible for our fee if the seller isn’t willing to pay. As a buyer, you will almost never have to pay to work with a realtor.
It’s in your best interest to have independent representation. The listing agent is working for the seller, and has their best interests at heart. You need someone on your side to make sure you get the best possible deal.
Finding the right home can take weeks or even months depending on your situation. Once we find a home you like, the offer can be accepted within a day or two, and the closing is typically 1-3 months later. This means you could be moved into your new home in a few short months.
