Buying a house will no doubt be one of the largest financial transactions and most nerve-racking decisions people will ever make. Jay's expertise will help guide you through all the obstacles during this important decision process.
PLANNING ON BUYING IN THE SHUSWAP SOON?
Dave Colombe & Angela Pearce
As first time home Buyers, my husband and I were unsure of what to expect in our price range and what a realtor would be able to find for us. After viewing many different properties with other Realtors we felt confident that Jay had our best interests in mind and so we chose Jay as our Realtor. Being patient, honest and encouraging, Jay helped us make what we feel was the best possible decision for our first home. Our experience was great and we'd highly recommend Jay as a Realtor to anyone."
The Yates family :)
"Thank you Jay for assisting us in purchasing our first house! Jay made the process very easy, and made us feel so comfortable through out everything. We couldn't have asked for a better or more personable realtor than Jay. If anyone is in need if a GREAT realtor just give Jay a call! We appreciate all your guidance, help and time you put into making our first purchase a breeze. Thanks!"
This Is Going To Be Fun...
Remember you're not just buying a home... you're buying the "Shuswap Lifestyle!". Jay tells buyers that all the time and they laugh. "But it's true," he says "we are so lucky to live here!" He gets that, and that's why Jay loves what he does. Whether you are a first time Buyer or a veteran home purchaser Jay promises to make the process of purchasing Salmon Arm and Shuswap area real estate easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge with someone else. He will help you locate and assess local properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
As an experienced, full time local real estate agent working every day he is always familiar with the current listings on the market and knows the individual neighborhood values well. Jay can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
At your request, Jay can provide you with on-going emails of new listings that fit your criteria so you are always one of the first to know! If you are new to the area he'll be happy to provide you with a complimentary re-location package plus arrange to give you an escorted orientation of the area.
Your First Step...
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: To stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? Retirement? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services.
Your Next 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. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes. Call Jay and he will refer you to a mortgage professional with an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.
Jay Will Find The Right Homes For You...
Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you can afford to stay in, he can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them. He has the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. By clicking on these links you can even search his personal current listings as well as all of the office listings. Jay will help you complete your financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. His top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient and successful.
