Buying Process

Buying a Home

Buying a home is probably the biggest investment you will make, with long-term financial ramifications. It calls for many informed decisions and for good advice from a real estate professional. When buying a home, you can learn from the knowledge and skill of a Real Estate Agent.

What can Real Estate Agents do to help you buy the right home for you?

  • They will help you determine how much home you can actually afford. Often, they can suggest additional ways to accrue the down payment and explain alternative financing methods. They can also introduce you to a mortgage counselor and arrange to have you “pre-approved” which can improve your negotiating position and enable you to achieve your home-buying objectives faster and with less stress.
  • Providing client level services, they can work for you as a buyer’s agent and help negotiate the best price and terms for you. Or, they can serve as a seller’s sub-agent (or disclosed dual agent), acting as a liaison between you and the seller to present offers and counteroffers until an agreement is reached.
  • They will help you work out a realistic idea of the home best suited to your needs – size, style, features, location, accessibility to schools, transportation, shopping, and other personal preferences.
  • They have access to a listing of all available homes in the multi-list system, can evaluate them in terms of your needs and affordability, and will not waste your time showing you unsuitable homes.
  • They can often suggest simple, imaginative changes that could make a home more suitable for you and improve its utility and value.
  • They can supply information on real estate values, taxes, utility costs, municipal services and facilities, and may be aware of proposed zoning changes that could affect your decision to buy.
  • They can provide you with a list of qualified home inspectors, pest inspectors, surveyors, and help to coordinate inspection appointments.

Robbyn was always very professional and willing to work around our crazy schedule. She was able to discern quickly what we were looking for and was able to send addresses that fit our needs. Robbyn even helped us with suggesting possible inspectors and lenders since we didn't have any idea where to start.

Simply put, Robbyn is the best! As a first time buyer, I wasn't sure what to expect or how to get the process started. Robbyn to the rescue! She's everything you'd want in an agent - patient, knowledgeable, attentive, well-connected - and so much more. I was especially impressed with how well she listened and was able to fine tune her search along the way to find homes that matched our wish list so perfectly. Thanks to all of her hard work and dedication, we ended up purchasing a home that we absolutely LOVE and couldn't be happier. Worth saying again - she's the best!

Robbyn helped find us our house in November 2016 and was excellent to work with! She was very accommodating to our schedules and cognisant to the fact that we both worked jobs that required us to only look at homes after work hours and on weekends. I couldn't recommend her enough.
