Buying a New Home

Preliminary Consultation

We encourage a preliminary meeting prior to beginning your home search. The purpose of this meeting is to explain the relationship and nature of the services we’ll provide. Understanding this relationship will clearly outline what our obligations are to each other. At this time we would prepare a search criteria, which would include potential neighbourhoods, a wish list and price range. We can also assist you in pre-qualification for mortgage purposes.

The Search for Your Dream Home

We will launch a detailed search of homes that meet your criteria. When you work with our team, you will be sent homes with matching criteria as soon as they are listed, often up to twenty-four hours before they are available to the general public.  Since we are plugged in to the Kanata market, we are able to give you a heads-up on any potential new listings. Throughout the process we will address any inquiries or answer questions you may have.  We are available to show you homes at any time.

All documents will be forwarded to your mortgage representative for approval.  We recommend booking a building inspection for a time that is convenient for you to attend.  This is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the property, and potential maintenance that may be required.  Should there be any deficiencies found during the inspection, we will advise you on how best to resolve the issue. We will ensure that all conditions are fulfilled within agreed deadlines, and that documents are forwarded to your lawyer, who will represent you to close the transaction.

Congratulations!

Once all your conditions are fulfilled, the “Sold” sign will go up on your dream home.  It’s a good time to celebrate and start packing!  Peace of mind that you have made a sound investment leads the way to a smooth and successful closing.  You can rely on us to be available to answer any questions throughout the process as we continually strive to deliver the highest level of service.
