Have you been thinking about buying a Condo in the Blue Mountains? Well you have come to the right place. We have a system that can let you know about new properties as they are listed before they go on MLS. Whether you are 2 months or 2 years from purchasing you can use this time to get familiar with the market, pricing, what you can get for your money, areas you like, features you can expect or not, etc. I can also help you get prepared by suggesting things you should have in place before you begin like a down-payment, getting pre-approved for financing and setting a plan if you need to sell your current property before hand.
Some basic criteria to start your search is the area, min number of bedrooms & bathrooms, min lot size, min house size, any musts like single/double garage, basement – full, finished, unfinished, fenced etc. A major thing when house hunting is, while having the basics understood, you need to also have an open mind, it’s not often that a Buyer will find the “perfect house”, there is generally a compromise somewhere. It takes seeing a bunch of houses to know what you are willing to give up and what is truly the most important.
It is always a good idea to speak to your Realtor to see how the current market is moving, there would be a typical number of days a property would be on the market. This is good to know, to be able to understand the question “Why has this been on the market so long?” May not actually be “so long”, it may be totally typical for that price range, in that market. You may also find that houses move so quickly that you need to be able to make quick decisions and have all financing in order, to be ready to offer immediately. Big difference in “normal for the market”. The benefit in having kept an eye on the market for a while is that it will help in making those quick decisions because you have an understanding of what has been out there.
If you are looking to buy in the Blue Mountain area contact me and we can discuss the current market and start searching for your new property.
Here is a great testimonial email I got from a client I thought I would share it.
“My husband and I have been wanting to buy a condo at Blue Mountain. We really enjoy going skiing there and spend lots of time there during the winter. We found some condos for sale when we first started going there, but didn’t really have the money at the time. We wanted to save to get one in the future.
Recently, we have been looking around at Blue Mountain condos to see if there is anything within our price range with the money that we have saved. I have been looking at several different real estate websites that have these condos for sale. I have found several that I really like and have been showing them to my husband as I find them. He has also been interested in the ones I have shown him.
The next step was to find an agent. We did some digging on the internet and we found Jill Does. Gave her a call and we hit it off. Easy to talk to, knowledgeable and helpful. She set us up on Prospector and now we have all the condos for sale in Blue Mountain, that meets our criteria sent to our phone. What an awesome idea?
Hopefully within the next few months we will be able to buy one so we can stay in it this winter. I want to enjoy it for the season before it’s over. I can’t wait to get in. Jill has been super helpful and patient with us. I am Glad we found her and looking forward to all the outdoor activities all year round. Like I said we are skiers but we also know Blue Mountain has got lots to offer during the rest of the year.
Just thought I would write this as a special thanks to Jill for the awesome service and look forward to condo life in Collingwood.
