Here is what the process of buying a house includes when working with Michael and his team at St. Jean Realty:

1Determining Needs and Wants

Everyone’s goals are different when it comes to buying. In truth, 99% of agents are running around with people they don’t really know or haven’t taken the time to talk to them about what they’re looking for. At our first meeting, we’ll sit down to go over every one of your needs, wants, limitations, and goals, to ensure that we are on the same page.

2Finding the Right Team

If you don’t choose a real estate agent to help you buy, you will be represented by the listing agent – who is working for the seller’s best interest, not yours. When you work with one of our buyer agents, you’ll have confidential assistance, a strong negotiator, expert advice on price and inclusions, and more, at every stage of the home buying process.

3Financial Preparation

If you aren’t pre-approved for a mortgage yet, we will connect you with the right professionals. Pre-approval will ensure that you are in the best financial position possible to buy a home. At this step, you will find out how much you can afford and will get the best financing terms and rates to set you up for long-term success.

4Get Information

Once your list of needs and wants is established, we will give you the same exclusive, real-time access to listings as real estate agents. You’ll be instantly notified when a home that matches your criteria comes on the market and will be in-the-loop with market changes. You will also have insider access to new developments, homes that are subject to power of sale and estate sales, and coming soon properties.

5Market Education

You’ll not only become a successful home buyer with us, but an educated one. To accomplish this, we will take you to see multiple houses that fit your criteria and price range to show you what you can really afford and to give us a better idea of what you’re looking for. This hands-on education is an invaluable step to the process of buying a home that is often missed by other agents.

6Viewing Properties

Now that you are financially prepared and fully educated on the market, we will continue the search. We will be available 24 hours a day, so as soon as you see a home that is of interest to you, we will schedule a time to view it right away. Usually, we will take a drive by the house and around the neighbourhood so you can see the big picture.

7Making an Offer

Once we have found the right home for you, we’ll act quickly to put together the strongest offer possible. By researching the property, creating a winning strategy, and negotiating on your behalf, we will help you win the home of your dreams.

8Selecting a Lawyer

We can recommend a reputable lawyer that will oversee all legalities and paperwork at closing. At this time, we will be fully available to answer any questions, ease concerns, and recommend other services if needed.

9Final Inspection

To make sure the property is in the same condition you viewed it in, we will help you set up a final home inspection. If any issues should arise, our team will be there to assist you.

10Moving In

There is just one more step to the home buying process: moving in! Just because the transaction is closed, doesn’t mean we up and leave. We will walk you through every final task and can recommend moving companies and others to help make this transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible. When you’re ready to sell and take the next step on the real estate ladder, we’ll be right here waiting to help.

To get the most out of this experience, the home buying process should be done with the guidance of a local, experienced team. Let’s talk about how we can help you reach your real estate goals today.
