Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home, you are 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 process. However, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
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 (Squamish, Whistler or Pemberton); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new); ski in/out; close to a golf course; Whistler Village proximaty; acrerage for horses near Pemberton; near the ocean in Squamish; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment. Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Your Next Step: Loan 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.
I Will Find The Right Homes For You
Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you prefer, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system to locate them. Feel free to explore this site to find properties currently listed on the MLS. In the Sea to Sky Corridor, we also have our own listing system called the Whistler Listing Service (WLS) to complement the MLS. Not all properties in this area will be listed on the MLS, so please contact me for current up to date listings.
