2. MEET WITH DESIRÉE

  • plan your buying strategy, timeline and ideal possession date

  • sign up for email notifications for homes that fit your new home criteria

3. VIEW HOUSES

  • please email or text me the addresses of properties you want to see 

  • put a star next to your top choices.  I’ll arrange the viewings and let you know where to meet!

  • if we’re going to see one house in a neighbourhood we might as well see one or two more

  • 4 houses at a time is a comfortable max. (typical showings are 20-30 mins per house)

  • slip-on shoes ease going in and out of houses

  • if friends or family will check the house you want to buy please bring them on a few viewing trips

  • bring a cheque with you so you’re ready to make an offer if we have to move quickly for the right house

4. MAKE AN OFFER

the major terms of your offer are:  deposit, conditions, price, possession date.  We will discuss these in detail when we meet.

  • have deposit money ready in your account and a cheque on you

  • many offers are conditional upon you obtaining satisfactory mortgage approval and home inspection

  • determine the price by tracking the sale price of houses that sell so you know what a house is worth to you

    • already a client? click here to view pricing strategies

  • possession day will depend on what you and the seller want (negotiated term)

usually I will negotiate your offer the day it is written.  please keep your phone on so I can update you :)
