Lorri Brewer at Infinite Realty Service has many home buying programs to help with your Edmonton real estate investment purchase. Once you have calculated what your sustainable price range is for a new home, and have secured the pre-approval for a mortgage, it is now time to start the home buying adventure with Lorri Brewer. She has a wide variety of sources that can assist you in the search for your perfect home.
Lorri Brewer and Your Internet Search - Simply by clicking on Lorri Brewer’s website and click to Become A Member you will be able to quickly and efficiently zero in on the properties which are in the Edmonton and surrounding geographical area and price range. One of the great advantages to internet searching for properties on www.lorribrewer.com that you will be able to see a number of properties in just minutes, with full specifications and vivid color photographs of the interior and exterior of the home. Although you should never "fall in love" with an Edmonton residential property just from photographs, the internet search can certainly save a lot of time and effort in eliminating a number of unsuitable property from your "to visit" list.
Real Estate Magazines & Newspapers - The Edmonton and Surrounding area has a Real Estate Weekly magazine which features a selection of homes from area realtors. Although not all of Lorri Brewer’s listings will be in the Edmonton Real Estate Weekly but you may find some exclusive properties which Lorri may market directly without placing them on the MLS system. The Edmonton Real Estate Weekly newspapers run large weekly real estate sections featuring all of Infinite Realty Service's properties of special interest.
Why Buy A Home
Drive-By - You know the general area that you would prefer to live in, so driving around and marking down the phone numbers on For Sale signs is a great way to find your dream home. The advantage to driving by overseeing photos on the internet or in an ad is that you are able to more accurately gauge how the home is placed in the neighborhood as compared to others, as well as be able to truly see the front of the property from all angles.
Word Of Mouth - Informing your friends, colleagues, and relatives that you are in the market for a home is a great way to find out about properties that might not be on the market yet, or are more difficult to find. Many of Lorri Brewers real estate transactions are completed by people who previously know each other, and in many cases the conditions are more advantageous than those that would have been extended to a stranger.
Of course just finding the property is not the end of the considerations which must be undertaken prior to placing an offer. Take time to review the entire condition of the property with an eye towards future maintenance and repair expenses. Many residential properties have an Energy Rating tag usually on the electrical panel. The higher the rating up to 100, the more the home is energy efficient, and that is a critical consideration these days.
Existing financing or the possibility of creative financing can make a huge difference in the process of purchasing the property. Some mortgages are assumable and their terms could be more favorable than those available on a new loan. The seller may even be amenable to extending vendor financing in the form of a take-back mortgage, which in many cases is a buyer's best financing option. At Infinite Realty Service we pride ourselves at staying up-to-date with the current real estate industry standards.
