Steps to Home Ownership
Choosing to purchase a home can be an emotional and complicated process, especially for first-time home buyers. I am here to help guide you through each step of this journey, beginning with the decision of whether or not to buy.
Step 1. Make the decision - are you ready to be a homeowner? It is important to balance the pros and cons of homeownership vs renting. Consider your financial situation, whether or not you will enjoy the freedom of doing your own renovations and improvements, and what your lifestsyle needs are. If you make the decision to buy, then it’s time for the next step!
Step 2. Choose a real estate agent – the person that you decide on to guide you through the process of searching for a home should be one that you trust and respect. Your house is a place you are proud to call ‘home’ and I’m someone that takes great pride in finding first-time, next and dream homes that fit every lifestyle. As your REALTOR®, I will have your best interests in mind as we start with step number three.
Step 3. Identify your wants and needs – Needs and wants are very different in home ownership. A ‘need’ is something that your new property must absolutely have (number of bedrooms, walking distance to a school, etc) whereas a ‘want’ is something that it ‘would be nice to have’ (a walk-in closet perhaps, or a vegetable garden). The timeline for your purchase is also something that could be considered either a want or a need, depending on if you are relocating for a job and want to start at the beginning of the school year, for instance.
Step 4. Get Pre-Qualified – It’s important to figure out how much you can afford to spend before you start looking for a home. I will help you to find a lender who will work with you to determine how much of a down-payment you can afford and what expenses to expect, then get you pre-approved to protect you against rising interest rates before you find your dream home. With the right experts on your side, the complicated task of financing your home can be less daunting.
Step 5. Find the home of your dreams – It’s time! Working together closely, we will narrow down the search for your home using your list of wants and needs, and start touring those you are interested in. Remember to take notes and perhaps pictures – or even bring a friend for a second opinion. Don’t be afraid to visit lots of homes before choosing one. Revisit promising homes and keep records of each home’s energy rating, utility costs and major repairs.
Step 6. Make
An Offer – Congratulations!! You’ve found a home that
fits your budget and put together your homebuying team. Now it’s time to make
an offer and close the deal! You should
expect to negotiate. While the process can be stressful, it’s all about making
the best deal for you
and the seller. I, as your REALTOR®,
will use my knowledge and skills to get you the best price possible, then
make sure you are aware of the closing costs and inspections that may need to

Consulting a REALTOR®
REALTORS® are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association who subscribe to a Code of Ethics and Standards of Business Practice. Members of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board are members of both the British Columbia and Canadian Real Estate Associations.The following is a list of services you can expect to receive from a REALTOR® when you buy a home:
- A REALTOR® will fully explain the details of your working relationship (called "agency") so that you are clear as to when a REALTOR® is working for you or for the seller.
- A REALTOR® has access to hundreds of current listings of homes for sale because of a co- operative system called the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®).
- A REALTOR® can provide you with a customized list of homes that best meet your needs -- size, style, features, location, proximity to schools, shopping, etc. - and then make arrangements for you to view those homes that appeal to you the most.
- A REALTOR® will help you determine how big a home you can afford. REALTORs® are familiar with the local lending market and can offer helpful advice.
- A REALTOR® has no emotional ties to any type or style of home and can be objective in pointing out the merits of one home over another.
- A REALTOR® will have information on zoning changes, taxes, utility costs and school and recreation services that could affect your decision to buy a home in a specific area.
- A REALTOR® will assist you in negotiating the terms of your purchase, which can be a nerve- wracking process for someone who is not experienced in negotiating.
- A REALTOR® will advise you of the legal process required in obtaining title and taking possession of your property; the costs associated with buying a home such as insurance, mortgage registration and legal fees will be explained in detail.

Selling Your Home - Why it Pays to Use a REALTOR®
Before selling your home, you will need a clear understanding of the legal issues and potential pitfalls. One wrong action could result in a lot of cost and frustration, which is why it is essential to have a REALTOR® working with you, as he or she will make the sale of your home a successful and satisfying experience.Greater exposure
REALTORS® use the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) to give your home maximum exposure. MLS® is a computer-based system that relays valuable information about your home to hundreds of REALTORS® and potential homebuyers.Setting a price
Setting a price for your home is an important but difficult process. Again, this is where the services of a REALTOR® prove invaluable. REALTORS® have the experience to help you understand how the market works and decide upon a realistic price that meets your goals. REALTORS® also pre-screen potential buyers to make sure only those who are serious and financially qualified view your home.
REALTORS® will also develop a marketing plan to help your property receive maximum exposure. This will likely include placing your home on the MLS® system and placing a "For Sale" sign on the front lawn. The plan will likely also include arranging open houses for other REALTORS® and potential buyers, and developing advertisements and feature sheets/mailers to market your home.
Once you have accepted an offer to buy your home, your REALTOR® will help ensure that all the proper paperwork is completed. He or she will also make sure that both parties meet the necessary conditions outlined in the agreement.Why working with a REALTOR® makes sense
When you work with a REALTOR® you will likely get a better price for your home than if you try to sell it yourself. Apart from the financial benefits, however, there is an extra measure of comfort and security that comes from having a REALTOR® on your side. Remember that REALTORS® are governed by a code of ethics and standards of business practice. They have also been trained and licensed under the provincial Real Estate Services Act to assist in transactions involving real property. When it comes to buying or selling property, using a REALTOR® just makes sense.
