Here are some quick tips to get you started!
A real estate offer from a pre-approved buyer gives them an advantage over others who have not started working with a lender. Having a lender Pre-approve you allows you to confidently search for a home within a designated price range and it shows the seller that you’re serious about buying.
You may already know what you’re looking for in a property but a qualified real estate expert will spot issues that you may not have crossed your mind. They’re also great at negotiating, have tons of industry connections, and a deep understanding of the area that you’re looking to purchase a property.
Once you’re pre-approved and have a home-buying professional in your corner, the next step is to create a list of all the features that you would like in your new home – from the tiny details indoors to what part of town you would prefer to live. Then reorganize your list from the most to least important and share it with your agent before you start your search.
Sometimes the appeal of giant estates that cross every amenity off your wish list can get the best of you but staying within your budget allows you to set more money aside for furnishings, future repairs, and maybe even enough to purchase an additional investment property. Dream big but always think ahead!
Ralph and his team have exceeded our expectations and then some. They helped us purchase our new home and guided us every step of the way in selling our home of 10 years (literally every step). They have gone out of their way on numerous occasions just to make our move more manageable. They have all kinds of gestures in place that we did not even think of or would have ever considered making selling and moving go smoothly. We could not have done this without such a wonderful team. Not only are they professional and know the ins and outs of the current housing market, but they are also the most genuine, honest, and friendliest people you will ever me...— Angie & Warren
Thank you to Ralph and the Helping You Move team! Your entire team is knowledgeable, kind, patient, responsive, and trustworthy. Ralph and his team made us feel like a priority through the whole process of buying and selling our home. Ralph was very knowledgeable when looking at potential homes with his previous experience in construction and offered great perspective and problem-solving when touring homes. Thank you for safely helping us buy our new home! The services that the Helping You Move team offers their clients when preparing to sell their homes are very helpful and made the process much less stressful. We would highly recommend your servic...— Mary-Anne & Nick S.
I thought Ralph and his team have been outstanding – particularly in setting our selling price, the timing of the listing, and particularly in people and negotiating skills. My only comment of suggestion would be to be more cautious with other agents visiting our home with their clients as there were a few times that lights were left on and the house was not left secure – doors and windows not locked. Ralph and his team have certainly gone over and above our expectations. Not just in selling and purchasing a home, but in being patient with us through the process as well as assisting us in staging and presenting our home to sell. We would certainly r...— Ron H.
We experienced both, the buying and selling processes with Ralph and his team. Ralph explained each step clearly before the actual process started. This explanation step did not only help us to understand the whole buying/selling process but also aided us to plan and act accordingly. We are grateful for Ralph’s immense knowledge about the neighborhoods, the structure of the houses, whole buying and selling process. Everyone on the team was able to meet and exceed our expectations for both buying and selling processes. Thanks to him and the team, we found our future home in Markham.— Yasemin K.
Ralph and his team were very helpful in outlining the selling process and preparing the house including staging some rooms and cleaning windows. The photos and video material and brochures were outstanding. We were kept well informed of the progress. The system of setting up the appointments for showings is simple and clear. Ralph and his team were responsive to our questions. Ralph worked hard to get a good price for our home and we are very pleased with the outcome. We highly recommend Ralph and his team if you are considering selling or buying.— Andrew R.
We recently had a great experience working with Ralph to lease our investment unit to excellent tenants. This was not our first time working with Ralph and his team, and it won’t be our last. They are efficient, friendly, and responsive with customer service that is second to none. Ralph is knowledgeable, honest, and an overall excellent human. We look forward to working with this awesome team again in the future.— Andrea B.
