Buying in the Okanagan Valley of Beautiful BC       

Assisting you every step of the way.... When purchasing your new home, vacation or recreation property  you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
 At your side each step of the way, 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. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.  As a proven leader in Real Estate, I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, neighborhood values, and market trends.   My knowledge, experience and expertise becomes an essential value for you in determining which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

First Step to Buying

Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home:
  • to stop paying rent?
  • To start building equity?
  • To have a place of your own?
  • To raise a family?
  • To entertain business associates?
  • To move up to a bigger house?
Then proceed to  list what kind of home you would like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate your essential "must haves" from the "want to haves."   Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific.
  • Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country);
  • community (north, south, east, or west side);
  • neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; 
  • community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment).
  • how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
  • think about home styles.
  • how much space do you need?
  • does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable?
  • consider size and kind of property.
  • do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up?
  • consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification 

Your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring secure loan approval for his/her clients.
