~ Buying A Home ~
 
Let us help you every step of the way
 
Purchasing a home is one of the most important and exciting things you will ever do and 
you will be faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are
actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy
task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once
you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort 
towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
 
While at your side each step of the way,we will make the process of purchasing a home 
easiermore enjoyableless time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook
this challenge on your own.We will help prepare & pre-approve you so that sellers
perceive you as a preferred and pre-qualified buyer, help you locate and assess properties
for sale that match your specifications,  help you through the myriad of details attending
the actual purchase and always, always put your best interests first.
 
We are always familiar with the current homes on the market, have vast experience in
the complexities of New Home Construction and we know the CHILLIWACK
and ABBOTSFORD areas and housing values well, so that we can help you
determinewhich properties/homes are fairly-priced, well located,  
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, country); 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: Financing Pre-Qualification
 
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is
to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
 
Call us and we'll refer you to mortgage professionals that have excellent reputations
and track records for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.
 
We Will Find The Right Homes For You
 
Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, my team
can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple
Listing Service system to locate them.

you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search
