The TOP 5 Things You Need to Know When Buying or Selling a Home!!!

Sometimes they are obvious, sometimes they aren’t. Either way, you need to be prepared for the real estate market, so, here are the top 5 no brainers, as I call them, in real estate. If you or anyone you know is looking to buy or sell a home in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Breslau, Elmira, Baden, New Hamburg, Ayr… and the surrounding area, you must know this info! 🙂

#1 Have a Realtor! — A pro will be your #1 guide. If you don’t have a Realtor, contact me ASAP! am happy to help. We all have questions, this is a complicated and highly specialized world, so don’t be shy, ask away. This will be a change changer for you!

#2 Be realistic with your pricing. — Price is #1. Some say location is #1. Location is important, its #2 on the list of importance. If it is a great location, with a $5,000,000 price tag, you probably can’t afford it. Price is most important. Its one reason why our market is so hot… because compared to the Toronto market, it is a great deal! When pricing your home for sale.. we want to attract buyers. I can go more into this for you and your exact situation, but this is a very important point we can expand a lot more on 1 on 1. — When buying, you want to have a realistic head space on price.. if you are looking at million dollars homes and have a $500,000 budget… you will be disappointed. And we don’t want that, we want you to be thrilled. Contact me for more on this.

#3 Get pre-approved for a mortgage. This ties in with be realistic with pricing, for buyers. This is very important. Worst thing we want if for you to fall in love with a home, and you can’t afford it, or, we aren’t able to ask fast enough, and the home, your home that you loved, gets SOLD to someone else. I work with some top notch mortgage brokers. I am happy to refer you to them. It is all about working with good people! Contact for me on this, and we can chat it all over! 🙂 Side not on this, for sellers, we only want people who are serious, who are pre approved, booking showings. We don’t want you taking the time to clean, get excited, leave the house, all for a showing who may not be serious. All of our showings and buyers are pre approved and excited buyers. I’m getting excited to go show homes now!! 🙂

#4 Use for your home search. There are a lot of odd sites out there with outdated info, and thats not good. is awesome. AND, even better! If you are my client, I can get you inside Matrix access. This is our Realtor system where the local properties will hit first. I can set you up to get the homes that match your exact criteria best, and you will be one of the first people to be aware of the new listings, and that could be a huge game changer for you in getting your ideal home or investment property. Exciting, right?! 🙂

#5 Be respectful of time. This is a no brainer. But, we really need to focus in to make it happen. Time is valuable, and I will give you all the knowledge, info, and relevant market info to make a highly informed decision. Don’t worry about asking too many questions. This is what I do, this is what I love. It is always a process. I am very patient. It is all about what is BEST for you. So, trust me when I say this… 🙂 I look forward to chatting more with you soon. Contact me today, right now, send me a message, what your looking for, looking to buy, sell, invest, whatever it may be. There is a lot of opportunity out there… we can chat about a strategy that works for you, to get you the very BEST results. Whats what we do, thats what we love!!
