At the best of times buying a home can be a confusing and stressful experience, whether you're a first-time or seasoned buyer.
Vancouver, known for its Supernatural beauty; has consistently been rated one of the best places to live in the World. While we are all proud of these accolades, it also makes for a highly competitive housing market as more and more people want to move here. Buyer's are put to the task of participating in multiple offer situations - more often than not without any subjects and all after one glance at the property during an Open House. This is not an environment to go it alone. Being a long time resident of the City combined with years of experience working in the market; Toni will provide you with knowledge, perspective, and humour to help guide you to make the best educated decisions for yourself. "Trying to have some fun and enjoyment throughout the journey is the goal I always strive for."
Start with The Dream
What if you could live wherever you want and money was no issue? What does that house look like? How many bedrooms? A big yard? Lots of natural light? Is it an older neighbourhood or newer development? Close to schools or transportation? How much space do you really need? Use this list of needs and wants to define the reasons why you want to purchase a new home. From this take your top five "must have" list and any extras are an added bonus.
Getting Your Ducks in a Row
Once your "must have" list is established, you're ready to take the next step by getting a pre-approved mortgage.
Pre-approval will give you an idea of what price range you can afford and provide an advantage as sellers will immediately see you as a serious buyer. This pre-approval will also allow you to negotiate a better deal and move more quickly in Vancouver's fast-paced market.
