Getting the right offer accepted
Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or experienced, the best buyer strategy is to work with a real estate agent who lives in the region and adapt to the ever-changing market. All while having a proven track record.
For example, working with local agents are likely to understand the culture, strategy, and trends in a specific region can be the difference you need for a successful purchase.
As a buyer, investing in a property can be a big decision with many implications and stressors. Therefore, you will need to develop innovative strategies to support your lifestyle financially and have guidance when you need it. Similarly, you need someone you can trust to pull that off.

How we approach things
As a first-time homebuyer, this is a whole new world for you that can quickly become overwhelming. Therefore, in the light of being supportive, our priority when working with first-time homebuyers is to educate.
We like to get to know you, as well as your situation. And, of course, your goals to enter the real estate market.
In addition, education in this industry is tricky because the market is always on the move and changes drastically. So not only is it essential to have someone you can trust, but it’s essential to have someone to guide you.
For example, here are some questions we like to ask our first-time buyers >
Are you looking to: live in the house and make it your home? Grow a family? Have a closer commute to work? Make a long-term investment or a short-term investment?
Being specific is key to understanding what a realistic goal is based on where you are buying.
Do you have a lawyer for closing a house deal? Do you feel secure in making pre-emptive offers, or are you interested in getting house inspections? Has your financial institution given you a pre-approval rate to define your budget?
