So it finally happened…

My client has been looking to buy a property since May. We arranged a preapproval in September when they got serious about looking. We reviewed the budget again in October to increase by $200k.

11 weeks later, the contract was signed. Relief all around.

Buying in the current market takes an enormous investment of time, emotion, money, devotion and research.

It’s worth it though when you find the right place.

Whether it’s your forever home, an investment property, your first home or your next step in the property ownership journey.

Don’t get discouraged in the process. It’s normal to go through challenges when you are buying a home. Whether it’s uncertainty about the price you pay, your budget, who to trust, whether it’s the right time to buy, how much of what the agent says you should believe or whether this is the right thing to do. Be resilient, persistent and stick with it.

Don’t give up.

We’re always here as a sounding board or for guidance or as your cheer squad! And if we can’t help, we can point you in the direction of someone who can.

Our advice right now is to keep your eye on the market over the holidays. There will be less people actively looking to buy and you might just come across the gem you’ve been waiting for!
