Buying in Whistler

The Whistler market may seem complicated and confusing with it's different zonings for rentals and residents. There are investment properties, holding properties, vacation properties and resident restricted properties it can be overwhelming.
Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home or resort property, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
 
I will make the process of purchasing easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
 
I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, I have seen most of them built and know their history, I know where the sun comes up and the sun goes down and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

Your First Step

Your first step to buying a property is to first ask yourself why you want to buy : To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of property you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
 
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area ,  community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment).  
 
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to own this particular home.

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
