Medicine Hat Real Estate buyer assistance  Medicine Hat Real Estate buyers tips

Tip#1 Play the game of Nines List 9 things you want & 9 you don’t. Use this list as a scorecard to rate properties. The biggest score wins! Itemize "SKIN AND BONES" (CHANGEABLE: cosmetics-carpet, paint. UNCHANGEABLE: location, view, lot, noise, school district, floor plan)

Tip#2 Improve credit rating – cancel unused credit cards, consolidate loans, put off major purchases, prior to asking for a mortgage.

Tip#3 Mortgage pre-qualification Before house hunting knowing your borrowing potential will safe time & stress by narrowing down the price range of homes to view.

Tip#4  Work with ONE Realtor Did you know many homes are sold WITHOUT A SIGN or ADVERTISING? These "great deals" go to those people who are committed to working with one agent. When an agent hears of a great buy he's more likely to call a committed client than someone who is playing the field.

Tip#5 Sell first, then buy – This will improve your negotiating position both selling & buying. You can always make the sale of your house "subject to finding suitable housing". 

My Medicine Hat and Area Home Buying Services


Medicine Hat Real Estate Buyer RepresentationReal Estate purchases are the most costly, important and stressful buys you are likely to make. Therefore, I take the buying process as seriously as you do and offer nothing but the highest quality of service to my clients. As an experienced negotiator I will effectively help you, to the best of my ability, acquire the property of your choice at the most advantageous price possible. Specializing in real estate sales in Medicine Hat, Redcliff and area, I will provide current information on homes for sale and comparable properties that have sold in the Medicine Hat region within the past few months. 
This will allow you to understand the Medicine Hat market conditions. It helps to know if you are in a Seller's, Buyer's or Balanced market when coming up with your initial offer. In a Seller's market there is a lot more competition and other Buyers may also be presenting bids for the same home, forcing you to be very competitive when setting the amount of your offer. Obviously the opposite is true in a Buyer's market allowing for a lower starting offer.

 Here are some of the steps I will take to find your perfect home:

 Helping Medicine Hat families find homes.

Determine Your Wants and Needs
This is the single most important step. By asking you a series of questions I will establish what you are looking for. My goal is to not waste your time by looking at properties that are not in your price range or homes that don't meet your needs. Throughout the buying process I will maintain your confidentiality and represent your best interests.

Help You Get Pre-Qualified
This step will show you how much you can afford.  This is accomplished by speaking with your financial institution or a mortgage broker and establishing what monthly payments you will be comfortable with.

Home Shopping
I will use every available method to locate a home that matches your search parameters.  This will include properties listed with our office, offered through other real estate companies, as well as unlisted properties.  I will disclose all known facts about the property that are likely to affect your decision. When we find the home that meets your criteria, I will assist you in writing an offer and act as a liason between you and the seller.
