…How I work for you
Let me help you find your new home, whether you are looking for a home in Okotoks or somewhere near to Okotoks I am here to help. When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, however I have all the tools, knowledge and local experience needed to make this an enjoyable experience. Best of all my home buying services are free.
…You are in safe hands
I hold the Accredited Buyers Representative designation, this designation is only awarded to REALTORS® who meet the specified high educational and practical experience criteria. I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer which is very important in a Sellers Market. I will help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and I will help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
I am very familiar with all the current homes listed in the Okotoks real estate market, and I know neighborhood values well. This means I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
…Your first step
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list 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. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
…Your next step: Mortgage qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company or bank. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes. I have many contacts in Okotoks who can help with your mortgage if you don’t have any of your own.
Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.
…I will help you find the right home
Once you’ve been pre-qualified and you know your price range, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate properties specific to your needs. I can setup searches that email new listings as soon as they hit the market.
I have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even start searching for your new home right here on my website. If you are looking for a new home in Okotoks, go to the Okotoks MLS listings tab at the top of my page, the searches are already filled out by community for you.
