A Guide To Home Buying With Janine


Meet Me, Love Me + Hire Me to Represent You

It is important that we work together because you choose to and never because you "have to". I would like to be the number one choice for all your friends, family and your own personal real estate needs for years to come!


Get Pre-Approved (I Can Help With This!)

Understanding how you will be funding the purchase of your home well in advance will strengthen your negotiation position and give you the opportunity to make smart decisions suitable to your lifestyle. I have great relationships with financial experts who will be able to assist you in discovering your options.


Let Me Set Up a Private Listing Portal For You

I have access to some of the most cutting edge technologies available to refine your search and narrow down our options before we get out to look at the homes. This is designed to save you time and ensure that you view the very best matches suited to your criteria.


Schedule Appointments For Viewings

This is the fun part of the home hunting process. We get to head out into the communities of your choice and look at the top properties that we have selected together to find your abode!


Write an Offer and Satisfy Conditions

Once we find a home you love, I will work with the seller and their agent to get an offer accepted. Typically, most offers, once agreed upon, are still conditional or subject to the buyer verifying information such as a home inspection or getting a financial commitment from a lender. I will help you understand which conditions you should have, and walk you through the steps to waive them.


Meet With the Lawyer

You will be meeting with the lawyer about a week before you take possession and will need to provide your insurance information, the balance of your down payment, payment of fees and payment of any adjustments or taxes. You will sign documents and finalize anything else that is required before you own the home. I have great relationships with lawyers whom I can recommend and my conveyancing department will ensure all the paperwork is delivered in plenty of time.


Take Possession of Your New Home

Typically, possession happens midday on the agreed upon day. The seller's lawyer will contact me directly when the keys can be released to you. Pop the champagne...you are finally home!
