Buying a Home in Calgary and
How NOT to End Up with a Lemon!
"Are you feeling overwhelmed, not sure where to begin? Perhaps you are afraid of making the wrong decision and overpaying for a property?
Because you'd be amazed just how often this happens to folk right here in Calgary's hot real estate market.
Buying a home is often a chaotic, confusing and downright overwhelming experience. Whew! And to top it off, you're probably afraid of making the wrong decision – even overpaying for a property. But how do you know you are not being hosed?
You spend hours jumping from one Calgary Real Estate Agent's website to another, and often end up totally exasperated and even more confused. It's torment. It's torture. And by the time you're done, you probably don't know more than when you started. Is this any way to buy a home?
Think you need some help?
So, here you are. You're reading this because you've experienced all the things we're talking about. Now you need some real help. The kind you can understand and act upon. What you need is real estate firm that will give you a written guarantee that your search will not only be pleasant, but will get you the home you're looking for. That would be us!
What makes us different, makes us better.
Some REALTORS® may try to shoehorn you into a property that simply makes them money ... without any regard for you, the client. They may gloss over the property's faults, or worse, not mention them at all. In some cases, you'll even be over-charged, but how will you know? Is this any way to do business? Not by our standards.
Of course, you could ask you favorite aunt (even your brother-in-law!) to recommend a real estate agent. And good luck with that! You already know how that will end up! Then again, you could look for a REALTOR® that will give you a written guarantee that your search will be pleasant and rewarding. In which case, you'd be looking at us. Why? We care. That's what makes us different. That's what really makes us better.
You really need to take a look at how this works.
So, let's look a little deeper into the real estate buying process in and around Calgary. Do you know enough to put together a "home evaluation puzzle," or even know what it is? We do. In any given real estate transaction there are many moving pieces in the overall buying process that you need to be aware of in order to avoid dangerous pitfalls.
Now, you're probably thinking that you're a smart person, and you'll be able to figure out this whole, "home evaluation puzzle" thing. And there's no doubt that given months of research and hard work, you just might be able to do that. But is it worth the time and the energy? Especially when we can put the puzzle together, show you your options, and get you the best possible home at the best possible price? Nah! No way, no how. We do the work for you. That's what we're here for.
A mistake could cost you hundreds-of-thousands.
Now, we fully realize that buying a home is probably the biggest financial decision you'll make in your lifetime. We're talking a whole lot of money here. It's an investment in yourself and your family, and your lifestyle as well. Present and future. And be rest assured, we take this every bit as seriously as you do. Your home is something you may pass on to your children, and you want to be certain that it will grow in value, and be there when you retire. Let's face it, you don't want to be paying rent to someone when you're 65!
Over the years we've helped hundreds of clients buy their first homes, dream homes, vacation homes, even downsized homes. In many cases these clients have recommended us to their family and friends. Proof positive we're doing things the right way.
Let's put it another way.
Think of your real estate agent as the captain of your home-buying ship. Does he/she really know what they're doing? Do you have absolute faith in their ability to help you reach your destination (your new home) without crashing and sinking on the shoals, or capsizing in the middle of rough weather? This is something you have to give a lot of thought to. The captain of your home-buying ship has to know where the reefs are, the hidden currents that could be disastrous, all the things that will make your voyage pleasant, and get you to your destination safely. That's precisely what we do.
If you're like most of our past clients, you've worked very hard to get to a place where you can buy a home. You're a financially responsible person. You've saved money and are now willing to commit to buying a great piece of property. This is no time to gamble on a real estate firm that you're not 100% certain has your best interests in mind. We would not kid you about this!
Our daily goal is to provide our customers with such an excellent service that you will tell all your friends and family about the positive experience that you had with us.
Back to the written guarantee!
Which bring us, once again, to that written guarantee we mentioned in the very beginning. Forget what your father said about there being no guarantees in life. This is one ironclad guarantee that you can take to the bank. In fact, we're so sure we'll even put it in writing! Plus, we're going to give you a free 78-page Home Buyer's Guide to boot. Try getting a deal like that from any other real estate agent in Calgary. Maybe in all of Alberta or Canada.
It's our philosophy that an educated client is the best client. That's why we've written the Home Buyer's Guide, which will, in fact, guide you through the process. We put this informative book together to answer most of the questions home buyers have ... both new home buyers, as well as those who have previously bought homes. You'll find a wealth of information in there that's written in plain English. To download a copy click here.
Glad you stopped by.
And one last thing. Thanks for visiting our site, and we hope you enjoy the Home Buyer's Guide. And again, don't forget about our 100% guarantee that you'll be happy with the way we work for and with you. In writing!
When the time is right, just pick up the phone and call for an appointment. That terrific home is out there waiting for you, and we're waiting to help you find it!
