How to Buy a Home in Edmonton Alberta

The Buying Process

There is so much to know when buying a new home. We make easier, more enjoyable, and less time-consuming by providing you with our "real estate buying secrets". We are familiar with all Edmonton communities and provide our clients with past, current and future home prices, based on the current absorption rates ensuring you are not overpaying for your new home!

Your First Step: Decisions

Your first step to buying a home is deciding what you really want. A new build, condo, or a detached house. Next, make a list of your "must-haves", then a list of your "wants" - things you want, but could live without if you had too. Third, decide which area of Edmonton or the surrounding area you would like to live in.

Your Second Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. Contact us for an experienced mortgage professional with an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.

Your Third Step: House Hunting

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, we can start our Edmonton house-hunting. We will view homes of your chose without the seller being present for a more comfortable viewing process. I will also point out any flaws in each property, which you may not notice.

How We Help

With our experienced Realtors helping you purchase your new home, we will provide you with our real estate buying tools and expertise. In return, you will save you thousands of future dollars knowing you have made the best decision on your new home purchase!  Our top priority is to make sure your buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.

How We Get Paid

Our fees are paid for by the sellers, so you don't have to!
