Episode Seven: Selecting a Property.


Once you have an understanding of your budget and property preferences, your real estate professional will provide with automatic property updates.

As soon as a property that meets your desirable home criteria is posted on MLS, your real estate agent will send you an email to direct you to that listing. In some neighbourhoods, homes are sold within days, or even within hours, of being listed on MLS. 

Others are marketed and sold Exclusively without ever being made available to the public.  Your REALTOR® may be able to arrange for advance access to properties that are represented Exclusively prior to reaching the Public through the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). 

Your real estate agent will schedule walk-throughs of properties matching your preferences and needs. You may also review properties on realtor.ca, on sothebysrealty.ca or by visiting Open Houses. Then contact your REALTOR® to schedule a private tour, should there be one that matches your needs. 

Now, you have made your choice and you would like to submit an Offer to Purchase and Property on an Agreement of Purchase and Sale.  What happens next?

Once you have seen a number of properties, it’s time to make a decision and decide on the best price to offer.
