We Love Helping Buyers Make Their Dreams Come True!
At Karen Paul & Associates, we bring pleasure to purchasing a home. Buying a home or property can be an emotional decision. Having a professional real estate agent representing you, can help prevent costly mistakes.
Our goal is to make you feel that your home purchase is in the hands of a professional real estate sales team that will be with you every step of the way.
It all begins with a personal consultation.
This is where we learn what kind of home you need and what you are looking for. As we discuss your choices and requirements we begin to narrow down your options which prevents us from having you consider homes that don’t fit.
Making A List Of Your Wants & Needs:
We’ll help you create a wish list AND a want list, clearly identifying those items that could make or break a deal.
We’ll want you to identify: type of home (single family dwelling etc.), neighbourhood preferences, transportation and shopping requirements, schools, community requirements and of course your budget.
At this time, we’ll discuss setting up a mortgage pre-approval appointment if you haven’t already done so. We can even recommend a mortgage specialist who often have highly competitive rates.
Discussing Any Concerns:
We will be happy to discuss any of your concerns. One that seems to come up fairly regularly, especially for current home owners is whether to buy or sell first. That’s where understanding market conditions is really invaluable. We’ll help you choose the best options including coordinating the closing dates and settling out conditions that work best for a planned move.
At this time, we’ll review the Buyer Representation Agreement, and what you can expect from our team.
The Excitement Of Visiting Houses:
Although it can be overwhelming at times, for most home buyers, looking at different homes is the most exciting part of the process. We always keep your expectations and criteria top of mind so that we are only showing you homes that we think will be the right fit.
It’s our job to pre-screen properties to make sure you are both well suited. And we will always be right at your side to provide you with support and advice from our highly knowledgeable and experienced team of real estate sales professionals.
How We Find Your New Home:
Beyond our own listings and the standard MLS listings, our real estate sales professionals tap into a vast network of contacts and ‘yet to be listed’ pool of real estate inventory from different brokerages who are willing to share information.
You can be assured that our team will always provide you the relevant information including: sale prices of the house; issues that may impact the purchase or cause problems down the road like lack of future resale potential and information on taxes, utilities, services and area amenities where applicable and available. This will help you make an informed decision.
We’re Here To Help!
As a buyer, there are often unforeseen and unexpected costs associated with purchasing a home. Our goal is to save you as much money as possible when buying your home, so you can spend the money you save on making that new home your own!
