Buying

When purchasing a home, you are faced with many huge decisions! As you engage in the process it is important to know that you are prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, obtaining a mortgage can be a complex and tiring process, understanding the different communities and lakes in our area takes experienced local knowledge.

I will be at your side each step of the way, making the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming. If you are prepared with a mortgage pre-approval & an understanding of the different neighbourhoods and local communities it will be easier to locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications.

I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

Your First Step

Why are you looking to buy a home? Are you renting & paying someone else's mortgage? Are you looking to raise a family? Or have things changed in your life & is this a "move up" or "move down" house?

Determine what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves." Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific.

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
