The Home Buyers' Guide

Buying a home can be simultaneously exciting and overwhelming, with many new opportunities and daunting tasks facing any buyer entering the market. A buyer needs to gain an understanding of the current market conditions, find the perfect property to suit their needs, negotiate the right price, and close the sale.

Hiring a REALTOR® to assist you with these tasks can take a huge weight off your shoulders, while ensuring that you have the right professional guidance towards the most satisfactory decisions.


The Buying Process

The first step is to determine your affordable price range. The best way to do this is to become pre-qualified for a mortgage through your bank or mortgage broker. This vital first step will save you a great deal of time by focusing your search on properties that are within your financial scope.

After pre-qualification comes the fun part: looking at homes. We’ll find some homes that fit your needs and desires, schedule viewings, and visit them, making sure to iterate towards “the perfect property” as we go.


Buying with a REALTOR®

Whether you’re a real estate investor or a personal home buyer, it’s important to have a professional on-hand who has expert knowledge about the market.

At Sutton 1st West, we are very familiar with the area, and eager to help you find a property that’s in your price range, your preferred location, and that meets the needs of you and your family.

In addition to helping you secure financing and investigating nearby neighborhoods, we’ll take you on in-depth property tours, pointing out the various features of each option for your consideration, so you have all the facts before making a decision to buy. When ready, we’ll draft a purchase offer with all the contingencies you require. We’ll also perform a comparative market analysis to determine an appropriate offer price, and negotiate the terms of the offer on your behalf.

Once your offer has been accepted, we’ll put you in touch with industry professionals that can make your purchase easier. From financing, to building inspection, we’ll be happy to connect you with the most reputable professionals in the field.

The Best Part:

Buyers’ agents are typically paid by the seller, so our services won’t cost you a dime!
