First Time Home Buyer
Many rental residents eagerly await the day when they pick up the keys to their First Home! The home buying process can be complicated without the expert advice made available through an experienced Realtor. I asked my clients a number of pertinent questions including what they were looking to buy, if they had a down payment saved up and how much, and whether they had the funds available for the closing costs of the purchase including land transfer tax and the cost of the lawyer. I also make them aware of the various Government programs to assist first time buyers financially with their purchase. All the bases are covered before we start the home search Need More Space? When you bought your first place, it was perfect for you. But then you had two kids, adopted a dog and were recently promoted. Your starter home is starting to feel a bit cramped.

Commercial Properties Over the years I have helped a number of clients purchase Commercial property for two reasons. They need a property to operate their business from or they are purchasing an income property. Purchasing commercial property has many additional steps that must be considered. Zoning restrictions, environmental issues and of course location, location, location are a few of the concerns. I spend a great deal of time with my commercial clients to make sure we explore all avenues when deciding on a commercial property.
