The SELECT Buying Process Breakdown

Pre-Approval: Ensure you have a valid government-issued photo ID, your most recent pay stub, T4, and a valid letter of employment.

Home Buyer Consultation: Your real estate agent will discuss:

  • The buying process in depth.
  • Desired property type, features, and price range.
  • Address any questions or concerns.
  • Provide recommendations on Mortgage Specialists, Property Inspectors, Lawyers, etc.

Home Search: Narrow down your top picks and send your agent the MLS # to arrange private showings. This allows for an in-depth feel of the home and consultation on potential concerns.

Found the Right Home: Conduct due diligence by researching and asking the “10 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Home.”

Making an Offer: Meet with your agent to fill out the necessary paperwork for making an offer. Your agent will provide recommendations and explain all areas of the contract. Bring your photo ID for identification.

Complete Buyer Due Diligence: Obtain financing and conduct a home inspection.

Final Steps: Once the mortgage is approved and the inspection is satisfactory, sign a “waiver of conditions” document. Upon signing, the sale becomes official. Congratulations!

Post-Sale Steps: Set up home insurance and utilities, finalize legal paperwork, conduct a final walk-through, and receive your keys on possession day.
