Now that you're pre-approved, and have a handle on your budget - it's time to contact a Realtor and start your home buying process! But wait, can't we just call the agent that has a home listed we are interested in and start that way? You can - but did you know as of March 15, 2018 in BC, Realtors will no longer be able to represent both the Buyer and Seller in a real estate transaction? Beyond that there are many benefits to having a dedicated professional working for you. As a dedicated professional with a long track record of helping all types of clients, and specifically first time buyers, here are some of the benefits to working with Kent Armstrong of Kelowna First Time Home Buyers and RE/MAX Kelowna.
- Protecting your interests is priority #1. This beans unbiased advice in your best interest, this ranges from advising on neighborhoods, individual properties and values, to writing contracts that are legally binding and protect you in the transaction!
-Streamlining the home search process. There is so much information on the web it can be exhausting and time consuming to sift through it all! Kent will set up custom searches so send listings that match your criteria directly to you, and this will include information on upcoming properties that have yet to hit the market for the general public to see!
-Knowledge and patience. A big part of the experience is educating you so that you are comfortable making the decision on your own, while having the knowledge to guide you. There's no pushy sales process. It's a team effort we work through together so when the time comes you have the confidence you are making the right decision, and have the comfort of having a knowledgeable professional guide you to home ownership!
