After carefully saving for your down payment you are ready to buy and you have selected Guelph as your destination, but you are unsure of the process and need some guidance on what to consider.  

7 Simple steps to buying a home

Taking your first step into the real estate market can be overwhelming. You are making the biggest purchase of your life and you aren't quite sure how to do it. To make it worse, you are constantly bombarded with mixed messages from market reports, social media, news outlets, friends, family etc. You might be thinking...

How does all of this work?

  • What's the process? Where should I start (mortgage, home style, location)?

  • How do I figure out how much I can afford?

  • If I use a Realtor, who pays them?

Who can I trust? 

  • Do I need a mortgage broker or should I talk to my bank?

  • What's the deal with online mortgage options?

  • Should I use an agent? If so, how do I know which to choose?

We cannot recommend Matthew highly enough. He negotiated and sold our home at over asking within five days of being on the market. He arranged to have a fantastic stager come to our home and had a videographer and photographer take gorgeous photos and video. He is a pleasure to work with and we are so pleased!

Andrea L. & Kevin L.

Matt was recommended by our friends. He was personable when we first met and made us feel comfortable. He answered our questions, offered sound advice, was accommodating in terms of seeing houses and was knowledgeable about the properties. We would definitely recommend Matthew to others and will use his services if we decide to sell.

Pat Z. & Joe K.

Matthew provided excellent service. He was very knowledgeable on the market and was accommodating in helping us prepare our house to get the best price for our property. I would recommend Matthew to anyone looking to sell their home.
