Make Buying a Home Smooth Sailing

November 21, 2011 - Updated: July 18, 2012

In the nautical world of pleasure boating, there is a specific process to follow to ensure a fun day on the water. Skip one of those steps and you risk having a miserable experience.
The same holds true when buying a new home. There is a process to follow to ensure everything goes smoothly. 

Here are the basics.
Find a good REALTOR®. Preferably someone who knows the area.


Determine what you can afford. Get a pre-approved mortgage.

Make a wish list. What kind of home or neighbourhood are you looking for?

View the right properties. Pick those that closely match the criteria on your wish list.

Make an offer. Your REALTOR® can help you make an offer that gets you the home you want at the right price.

Get a home inspection. This is a must. 

Get the paperwork done. Your REALTOR®, lawyer and lender will typically handle all the transaction paperwork for you.

Prepare for the move. Find a good mover.
Don’t forget to arrange for telephone, internet, change of address and other details.

Follow this process and your move should be smooth sailing!

If you have any questions, call me today.

I am always here to help.
