Determine Your Wants & Needs
Let's talk.First and foremost, we want to meet with you. Whether it's a formal sit-down in our office or a casual conversation over coffee, we want to get to find out more about what you're goals and priorities are in the Vancouver housing market. Do you want a quintessential family home with a yard and white pickett fence? Or is an urban condo more your style? Here are just some of the most notable things we'll want to determine right away:

Connect You With The Right Listings
We'll show you only listings you care about, and none that you don't.
Once we have a good idea of what you're looking for, we'll send you listings that match your specific criteria. Not just MLS® listings, but also exclusive listings from developers and private sales as well. By letting us know which ones you like most, we can further customize the listings delivered to you so that only those which matter to you appear in your inbox.
When the perfect property catches your eye, we'll coordinate with the selling agent to schedule a private showing.
Make An Offer They Can't Refuse
A competitive offer is key.
Placing an offer can often be one of the only chances you have to secure your dream home. With so much at stake, it's important that your offer be equally as competitive in the market as it is fair to the seller and still be within your budget. At Bardon & Associates, we perform an accurate and comprehensive comparative market analysis on any property that interests you before placing an offer to ascertain the true, fair market value. We'll then explain all of the intricacies of writing an offer and work with you to place one that best suits your needs while legally protecting your best interests. Your agent will personally present the offer to the sellers when possible to negotiate on-the-spot if the option arises.
In the event that we're dealing with the purchase of a strata property, we will thoroughly review the strata minutes and bylaws to ensure that you know all the relevant facts about the property that you're interested in.
Fulfill The Contingencies & Walkthroughs
Follow through with the contingencies for a smooth & seamless transition.
With both parties satisfied with the price and contingencies, its time to fulfill the duties and requirements as outlined in the contract. Your real estate agent will be able to help you with scheduling appointments for a home inspection and to meet with an insurance broker. Your agent will then accompany you to the final walkthrough to ensure everything has been completed by the sellers as discussed.
Assuming each party has fulfilled their end of the agreement, it's time to collect the keys and schedule the move!
Buying a home should be an exciting and rewarding experience, not stressful and complicated. Let our experienced Vancouver real estate agents guide you through the process. From the very first meeting to the moment that you receive the keys, we can help you with the complicated process of buying a home.
