The Urban Realty Group team knows the Whitehorse opportunities and the market. After spending time getting to know what defines your dream home, we can help you find it, despite competition. We’re here to help!

Step 1: Get Pre-Approved
Going through the mortgage application process ensures that you are shopping in your price range. Have a pre-approved status is more effective than having a pre-qualified status. It’s the next best thing to carrying around a hockey bag of cash and lets potential sellers know you’re ready to talk details.

Step 2: Be First
As real estate brokers we can let you know as soon as new listings are available, even before they’re advertised. Timing can play a crucial role in getting the home you’ve always dreamed of. It’s your future home, so be sure to use all of the resources available to you.

Step 3: Be Informed
The best way to know what kind of house your money will buy is to check out the local properties in the area that you want to buy to see for yourself which places have the hottest market. Gain an understanding of the price points in your preferred area, and note the difference between the asking price and selling price. The Urban Realty Group team can show you comparable properties, shed light on the features that represent the best value, and get you the results you want.

Step 4: Keep it Personal
We take your offer seriously, and will offer it in person to optimize your advantage. By being on the scene, this adds a personal touch to the transaction and can help to answer questions that might otherwise delay things. Compare that to having your offer sitting in the fax machine tray at the office, and you’ll understand why that’s important.

Step 5: Mean Business
One way to get a seller’s attention and prove that you mean business is to include a good faith deposit with your offer. That’s shows that you’re not one to be wasting their time with indecision and can motivate progress of the sale.

Step 6: Keep Cool
If it looks like others are eyeing the same property, keep your cool. While you may have to offer something other than the asking price there are many ways to find an agreement. This can include such things the cost of an inspection, or a different closing date, but you shouldn’t have to pay more than you planned. The Urban Real Estate team are skilled negotiators, and can find creative ways to close the deal, while keeping it clean and simple.
