“Jeanette was recommended to me by my brother and I do not regret that decision at all! Jeanette was absolutely amazing with everything. If you’re a first time home buyer or even just looking for a new realtor than she’s the one for you. She made everything as stress free as it possibly could have been when it came to us buying our first home. And my wife and I could not be more pleased with how everything went”

– Jacob Ashton (Buyer)

About Buying Real Estate in Peterborough & Kawartha's?

The first step is to click here to request a complimentary consultation (by phone or video call) where we’ll discuss your goals and situation and answer any questions you may have about working together. If you decide to proceed from there, you will be asked to sign a standard Buyer Representation Agreement – and we will get to work identifying and visiting properties that meet your criteria! 

That depends on many things including what you’re looking for, your budget, and the state of the market. When we meet for you consultation we can provide you with a best guess based on the market and what you’re looking for. 

One of the most important first steps is getting clear on your financial picture and how much you can – and want – to spend on a home. We recommend speaking to your bank or a mortgage broker and obtaining a pre-approval, so you know exactly where you stand. Click here for a handy mortgage calculator that may be helpful. 
Of course, it’s also helpful to have an idea of where you want to land, and the things that are important to you in a home (number of bedrooms, washrooms, special features, etc.) so that we can target our search accordingly. 

The great thing about being a buyer is that the professional fee is usually paid by the Seller in most cases. 

You should plan to set aside 1.5% for closing cost, which include lawyer’s fees, moving, land transfer tax (here’s a calculator to help you predict how much that will be), etc. 

 This depends on a couple of factors including the state of the market and whether you can afford to carry two homes if the current home isn’t sold before the new one closes. Again we’ll discuss your options – and the pros and cons – when we meet.
