Congratulations on your decision to buy a home – that is, if you have gotten that far! If you are a first time home buyer, you may be unclear about exactly what is involved, how much you can afford, or if it is the right decision for you at all.
If you are not new to home ownership, you may still have some questions about how the process works and what the exact protocol is. Things may have changed since you were last in the market. In either case, one part of Glenn’s job as your Realtor® is to ensure that you understand exactly what is going on, what to expect, and what to look out for.
Glenn and his team have helped many buyers, ranging from first time buyers at entry level, to seasoned, real estate savvy investors. From new home construction to resale properties, he has the knowledge, experience and the right people to get you where you want to go. Let’s start by telling you a little bit more about the buying process!
Getting a pre-approval from a mortgage broker is one of the most important first steps in the process of buying a home. It helps you to establish what you are qualified to spend, and a good professional broker will clarify all of the details around finance, deposits, and closing costs with you.
Once we’ve established what your price range is, we’ll work with you to find the perfect house, townhome or condo in any number of areas you might be interested in. Working with us gives you access to exclusive properties, the best deals, and finding that gem you never knew of.
The minimum downpayment in real estate is 5% of the purchase price, is due upon removal of conditions, and is held by the selling brokerage in trust until closing. First-time homebuyers can make a withdrawal from their RRSPs, tax-free, and pay the amount back within 15 years.
On the day of completion, your lawyer will handle the transfer of money and title. Then, on possession day, we’ll be excited to meet you at your front door to hand you the keys to your brand new home! And if there is anything you need after you've moved in, our team is here for you.
Buying a home involves complex financial and personal decisions. That’s why you deserve top-caliber service from your real estate professional. Glenn has over 20 years of business management and sales experience, with extreme attention to detail, superb people skills, and overall knowledge of the real estate industry.
