For Home Buyers: When Buying a Home

One might consider various options when purchasing Vancouver real estate.

Here are a few steps to guide you:

  1. Determine your budget: Determine how much you can comfortably spend on a home. Assess your income, expenses, and savings to establish a realistic budget.
  2. Get pre-approved for a mortgage: If you’re not paying in cash or by cheque, you can get pre-approved. Meet with a lender to assess your creditworthiness and determine the borrowing amount available to you.
  3. Find and hire a real estate agent: The next step is to locate a real estate agent with expertise in Vancouver. Our team can assist you in identifying properties that match your criteria and provide guidance throughout the buying process.
  4. Search for homes: Collaborating with one of our real estate agents, you can start searching for homes that align with your requirements and budget. We’ll schedule viewings and help you evaluate potential properties.
  5. Make an offer: When you find a home you like, we’ll help you make an offer to the seller. Your offer will specify the purchase price, any contingencies, and a proposed closing date.
  6. Complete the inspection and appraisal: After your offer is accepted, it’s essential to complete a home inspection and assessment to ensure the property is in good condition and justifies the price you’re paying.
  7. Close the sale: The final step involves closing the sale, which includes signing necessary documents and transferring ownership of the property. This typically occurs at a lawyer’s office and involves payment of closing costs and applicable taxes.
