Getting the Oakville home of your dreams really is as simple as following a few steps. You’re going to want to get financing before you start looking for a home, and then you’re going to want to think about selling your current home if you own one. You’ll want to contact us so we can help you find the right home, and then we’ll help you make the right bid. Once your bid has been accepted you’ll need to get the home inspected to look for issues before you buy. When everything is settled you’ll need to prepare for the big move. It’s just that easy!
Get Your Financing Settled
Getting your financing settled before you start shopping for Oakville real estate is the smartest thing you can do. You don’t want to start looking for a home, fall in love with it and then only have the deal fall through. Save yourself some worry and make sure that you have mortgage pre-approval from a lender before you start shopping for your home. You can use this letter to show buyers that you've secured financing and are a serious bidder.
Do You Own a Home Already?
If you own a home already, you may want to consider putting it on the market to finance your new home. Some homeowners opt to rent out their homes instead, so they can make monthly mortgage payments on their new property or just for extra income. Either way, you'll want to figure out what you're going to do with your present home before you buy a new one.

Know What You're Getting
Even the finest Oakville luxury homes for sale can have their little quirks; this is why you need a certified home inspector to come look at the property before you close. They'll be able to check the property for common issues so you don't have to worry about problems down the road. If there are minor issues, you can have the owner fix them before you close. Many will fix it or will pay a large portion to get the home up to code.
Prepare to Move
If all has gone well, you've closed the house and you're ready to move in! The hard part of buying your Oakville real estate is over, and now all you need to do is turn on your utilities, get your home owner's insurance started and move your belongings in.
