I will work closely with you to establish a search criteria, seeking to understand your objectives from purchasing property in Whistler. My intimate knowledge of Whistler allows me to recommend the right choice for you; from friendly neighbourhoods for a family-orientated buyer to condos presenting the maximum ROI for a client with investment in mind.
When Bruce Watt is your real estate agent, this is what you can expect the buying process to look like.
I will schedule a shortlist of potential properties for you to preview. For clients out of town, I use high resolution imagery and videography to provide a valuable insight into each property.
Once you have found the property for you, I will prepare an offer to be presented to the Sellers Agent. This will either be accepted or ‘countered’ by the sellers with a counter-offer.
A seller may counter your offer with different terms and conditions including (but not limited to) different pricing or dates of completion. At this point the buyer has the choice to either accept these terms or re-counter with their new terms e.g. a different price. This negotiation process will continue back and forth until both parties can agree.
This is once both the buyer and seller agree to all the terms and conditions in the contract. Once a contract is accepted, we will begin our due diligence including reviewing strata documents, completing a building inspection etc. At this time, additional subjects such as ‘securing financing’ may be included in the contract.
If subjects were included in the accepted offer, this is the time when they would be removed and the contract becomes firm and binding. Examples of subjects include securing financing or conducting a building inspection. I can connect you with the appropriate professionals to assist in completing your home purchase.
Depending on the contract a deposit is paid either on upon acceptance or subject removal to be held in trust by the buyers’ Real Estate Company, as a sign of good faith of the buyers’ intent to complete.
Title has been transferred and you are now the proud owner of your new Whistler home. Congratulations!
