Search for Your Next Ottawa Home
Looking for your next Ottawa home?
Start your search here.
Are you a first time home buyer? A new investor? Interested in new or pre-construction? Feeling overwhelmed?
It takes time. Trust me – buying a home whether it is your first or nth time is always nerve-wracking. Each home is unique in its own way. Therefore, why expect the transaction to be the same every time?
One of the biggest reasons first time home buyers and investors delay their purchase is because of fear. I’m sure you’ve heard this expression a lot: your home is one of your biggest investments. Therefore, getting to know the person you want to handle this transaction for you is important. By working with someone you know you can trust with the process, you can rest easy knowing that you’re in good hands.
As part of my commitment, I am with you in this process. Let me find your next Ottawa home for you.
The first step in your home buying experience is knowing how much you can afford. By getting a pre-approval from either your mortgage agent or bank mortgage specialist, you can filter your search and save time early on. There isn’t anything more disappointing than finding out too late that you can’t qualify for your dream home.
Contact me by completing the form above.
Working with a specific professional real estate agent saves you time and streamlines the process. Never miss out on anything! Did you know that it takes 24 hours before new listings appear publicly on Realtor.ca? Your trusted REALTOR can set you up with a daily new property listings. Further, they can help keep an eye out for you for any Exclusives and Hot-Off-the-Press Listings that just got uploaded on MLS.
Have additional questions before starting the process?
Now that you’ve been pre-approved and working with me as your trusted REALTOR, decide whether you want to buy re-sale or new. While the process is almost the same, there are different risks and financial obligations in buying one over the other. Assess your risk.
Not sure which to go for? This one of the reasons why I am here. I can always help you narrow down your choices based on preference, financial capacity, schedule and other requirements (must-haves, wants and needs).
Now on to the more exciting part! Once we’ve figured out your needs and wants, I send you a list of new listings available in the market. If something stands out, tell me and I’ll take care of the rest. All you need to do is show up and view your potential new home.
Love what you saw and ready to call that home yours? Then we draw up our offer and submit to the seller!
This is where I present your offer and negotiate the price, what’s included in the deal and the closing date on your behalf. I make sure that your interest is protected and you are well-represented.
Once your offer gets accepted, we provide the seller your deposit and then we get to work to fulfill the conditions. Once all conditions are fulfilled, the home is sold firm. Congratulations, you’ve found yourself a home!
But wait… it’s still not yours so don’t fully celebrate just yet – not until you have the key! (But I won’t stop you from cracking open a cold one – you deserve some reward after going past the first hurdle!).
This is a crucial part.
In this process, myself, your mortgage agent and your lawyer get to work to make sure you close the deal without any hiccups. Your initial mortgage pre-approval should now be finalized and signed. Appraisals and Title searches are done. The final walk through is conducted. Your lawyer reviews and gathers all the documents which you will then sign before getting the keys. Once all the documents are processed and signed – congratulations! The home is now yours. Cheers!
