You want to find someone who not only has experience and knowledge about the market that you will be buying or selling in but also someone that you are comfortable with and can trust.
Find an agent who is an authority on the area you are interested in and ask them about the way they work and how they will work with you to buy or sell your home.
Get pre-approved for a mortgage so that you can act quickly when your agent finds the perfect home for you. If you wait then the extra time it takes you to secure financing could mean losing the home to a competing buyer.
Now it’s time for your agent to get to work on finding the best home for you based on what you want and what you can afford. It’s important to visit open houses with your agent if you can to see the property up close and examine every detail. If you’re buying pre-construction, you will have to make your decision based on floorplans, artists’ renderings or models, but a good agent will also help you avoid any unreliable developers.
Once your agent has helped you find your dream home it’s time for him or her to write up an offer, and begin to negotiate a price that works for you and the seller. Your agent will help you determine how high that offer should be based on what the fair market value is.
If your offer is accepted, then it’s time to close by making out a deposit cheque of up to 5% of the purchase price. This cheque should be made out to a third party such as the seller’s lawyer or the selling agent’s trust account, and this amount will be deducted from the purchase price upon closing.
