It is essential as a first time home buyer in the real estate market that you work with someone who is experienced with first time buyers. First time buyers will usually have more questions than people who have purchased real estate previously. Buying a home is not a simple process, especially when you are not familiar with it. You may not know what price range of properties you can look at, what mortgage payments you can afford, or how the general home buying process works.
For a first time buyer, I generally recommend getting to a bank or seeing a mobile mortgage specialist as soon as possible to determine what you can afford and what you are comfortable with paying each month. You can then be ‘pre-approved’, which is the first step to getting you into an affordable home and getting you started in the market.
I can provide the answers to your questions and walk you through the entire process, from viewing potential homes, to making an offer, to setting up mortgage financing. Although buying your first home can be overwhelming, you can be confident that I will be available to help you every step of the way. I enjoy the process as much as you do, and find it very exciting! I still remember buying my first home and all of the questions that I had. Having a real estate agent that was willing to be available and answer my questions made the process so much easier and calming. This is the same commitment I make to all of my first time buyers, and anyone that I work with.
If you are someone that is interested in getting into the real estate market and buying your first home I would be happy to work with you and make the process as simple as possible. For additional information on buying a home, please contact me anytime.
My family has been living in Kelowna since the 1980’s. This is really important for you as a buyer when selecting the various neighborhoods in Kelowna or the amenities they provide nearby; as a seller it is equally important to make sure you're getting the best price for your home.
I have done just about everything to do with real estate in the Okanagan. I have owned rental properties, flipped a few properties, owned commercial land and buildings, and even helped clients with purchasing rent to own properties. I have lots of experience in new home construction as we have built over 30 homes in the Okanagan. I am also affiliated with an amazing group of realtors at Sage Executive Group Real Estate. We are not a franchise, but locally born and 60 plus members strong. I now enjoy helping my clients with all of their real estate needs.
Thank you for stopping by.
