It is an exciting time! You have decided to buy a home, condo, or investment property & we, of Merv Edinger & Associates, are here to help you navigate through the entire buying process & all the paperwork involved. Whether you are a first-time home buyer, an experienced home owner, relocating for work or investing in Real Estate, the basics of the real estate buying process are the same.
We like to meet all of our buyer clients in person so that we can discuss with you the entire home buying process. We want to know what is important to you in your home, community, & time line as well as any special needs that you may have. You will have lots of questions, as we will for you. Together, we will find you the right fit for your lifestyle & budget.
We like to hear what type of home you picture and if there is an area you prefer. If you are not familiar with the different neighbourhoods, you can be sure that we are. Therefore, we select a sampling of homes in different locales and start there. Before you even meet with us, it is a really good idea to meet with your banker or mortgage broker. They will advise a comfortable price range for you, you get to compare mortgage rates, & select the terms that suits your plans for the future.
This is a process that may take some time. You may look at a number of houses on each outing at the beginning. Then, we will watch the market carefully for new listings and maybe just meet to show you one or two. After you have looked at a number of properties, you will begin to know exactly what it is you want - and so will we!
Merv Edinger will be with you every step of the way! With a solid understanding of your criteria, we work diligently to share new listings as they become available. & sometimes, even before they hit the open market. As well, we will be keeping a close eye on the market with our search efforts extending well beyond the MLS system. When you find the home you have been searching for, we handle all paper work, following up on all conditions until transaction is firm. It is a given that before you even offer on your choice, that we research and make sure that you will be paying a fair and reasonable price with conditions that suit you. In other words, we want to make sure, "find the right fit for you at the right price".
The most exciting day, is the day we get to deliver the keys to your new home to you!
