Live The Dream

You will need to make a number of decisions about this purchase that should be based on the best information available. The best advice you can obtain on buying a home will come from a real estate professional -- a REALTOR®. REALTORS® are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association who subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and high Standards of Business Practice. Members of the Victoria Real Estate Board are members of both the British Columbia and Canadian Real Estate Associations. The following is a list of services you can expect to receive from a REALTOR® when you buy a home: • A REALTOR® will fully explain the details of your working relationship (called “agency”) so that you are clear as to when a REALTOR® is working for you or for the seller. • A REALTOR® has access to hundreds of current listings of homes for sale because of a co-operative system called the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®). A REALTOR® can provide you with a customized list of homes that best your needs -size, style, features, location, proximity to schools, hospital and shopping, etc. – and then make arrangements for you to view those homes that appeal the most. • A REALTOR® will help you determine how big a home you can afford. Assessing the many financial alternatives is an important consideration when buying a home. REALTORS® are familiar with the local lending market and can offer helpful advice.


• A REALTOR® has no emotional ties to any type or style of home and can be objective in pointing out the merits of one home over another. • A REALTOR® will have information on zoning changes, taxes, utility costs, school and recreation services that could affect your decision to buy a home in a specific area. • A REALTOR® will assist you in negotiating the terms of your purchase. Presenting offers and handling counter offers can be a nerve-wracking process for someone who is not experienced in the art of negotiating. • Finally, a REALTOR® will advise you of the legal process required in obtaining title and taking possession of your property. The costs associated with buying a home such as insurance, mortgage registration and legal fees will be explained in detail. A REALTOR® 's knowledge and skill can help in many ways to make the experience of buying a home a pleasant and rewarding one for you and your family.

DON’T FORGET “CLOSING COSTS” WHEN BUYING A HOME Despite today’s attractive mortgage rates and wide selection of affordable homes from which to choose, you should keep in mind “closing costs” in addition to your down payment for that dream home. These various charges can add up and for the most part they are all legally required payments in buying a property. These payments include: * Legal fees: since a lawyer or notary public is an essential part of your home-buying team, the work provided involves legal fees. Most legal fees include searching the title of a property, arranging a property survey if necessary, and handling other disbursements as required. * Mortgage insurance and application fee: for any high ratio mortgage, which is any mortgage in which 75 per cent or more of the house’s purchase price is covered by the mortgage, the lender requires mortgage insurance. * Mortgage broker’s fee: Consumers may be charged a fee by a lender or mortgage broker for setting up a mortgage when income or credit issues become more sensitive to the approval process. In some cases the fee may be included with the legal fees if your lawyer arranges the mortgage, or included in the lender’s fee if you deal directly with a lender such as a bank. * Property insurance: this insurance covers the replacement value of your home and its contents. Most mortgage lenders will require proof that you have this insurance before processing a mortgage. * Home inspection: a professional home inspector knows what to look for and can confirm or add to the information you have gleaned from the REALTOR or your inspection. * Property transfer tax: this provincial tax is payable at the rate of one per cent on the first $200,000 of the purchase price and two percent on the balance. * GST: GST is payable to some degree on the purchase price on all new homes, although partial rebates are available on the purchase of most homes. A resale residential home is usually exempt from GST. * Extra charges: you may also be required to pay the costs of such things as heating oil in the tank, or other costs incurred by the seller, but included with the house, prior to the closing day. * Hook-ups: there may be hook-up charges required for appliances and services such as telephone, TV cable, hydro and other utilities. * Moving costs: don’t forget the basic costs involved in moving from your old place into your new home, particularly if you use a professional moving company. A REALTOR can explain further details on closing costs — just remember to add them to your financial plan when saving to buy a home.

*These are approximate savings based on the difference between annual natural gas and electricity costs for space and water heating of a 2,300 square-foot house with average insulation and four occupants in the FortisBC Lower Mainland service area. Calculation compared standard-efficiency natural gas furnace and large storage tank water heater with electric furnace and equivalent water heater and is based on FortisBC natural gas rates as of May 2013 ($9.35/GJ) and electricity rates in the service area identified (Tier 1 and 2: $0.071 and $0.109 per kWh). Actual savings may vary. Savings do not include potential rebates and/or incentives.

People are talking... Although, we had ascertained that you came very highly recommend, our main reason for choosing you as our realtor was that you offered us a guaranteed sale option, that if you couldn’t sell our home, you would buy it from us. This was especially important to us as we had already purchased and moved into our new home and from a financial point of view, the guaranteed sale option offered us peace of mind that we wouldn’t have to worry about financing two homes at the same time. The paperwork was accomplished in a couple of days and we were able to sleep soundly again! Ron, you and your team, and of course, the guaranteed sale option, made all the difference to us. We’re satisfied customers, and have been recommending you to our friends.
