We help you every step of the way. When purchasing a commercial, industrial or residential property, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase. Locating the perfect real estate investment is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage or commercial loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, we make the process of purchasing real estate easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. We help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
The Comox Realty Group is familiar with the current listings on the market, and we know neighborhood and commercial values well, so our team can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
Your first step to buying a property is to first ask yourself why you want to buy an investment, a business facility or a home? To start building equity? To generate income? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? To grow your business? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about styles and type of property. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer property, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company or commercial lender. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
Call our team and we can refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.
Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, we help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them.
We have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search our listings here at our website.
We help you complete your due diligence such as; financing and inspections obligations to close on the transaction. The top priority is to make sure that your home or investment buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.
