Selling your home can seem like a daunting task, but our agents are experts at getting your home sold fast and will help you every step of the way.
Why do you want to sell?
For starters, you want to determine why you are selling your home. Are you looking to upgrade, downgrade, or get a return on your investment? It is important for you to nail down exactly why you are selling your home so you can prepare yourself for the reality of putting your home on the market.
When do you want to sell?
“Timing is Everything” and you want to make sure your timing is right. We can help you decide what the current market conditions are and when the best time is for you to sell your home and buy a replacement.
Preparing your finances
One of the most important aspects of selling your home is getting a good handle on your current financial situation and what you plan to do after the sale of your home. We will help you navigate how to get the most money for your sale and the best deal when purchasing your new home.
Determining your property value
It is important for you to have an accurate value for your home before you put it on the market. This way you will have an idea of what you can list your home for in comparison to what you paid or currently owe. We will help you with this process and will ensure you are starting off on the right foot.
Preparing for showtime
Showing your home can be one of the most fun and exciting aspects of the entire sales process. It allows you to take pride in what you have and “show off” a little bit. It is very important for the exterior and interior of the home to be clean and tidy, and for you to not be in the home during showings.
Time for negotiation
Congratulations, someone wants to buy your home! Sometimes you will get lucky and get the perfect offer, but in most cases there is going to be a bit of back and forth to make sure everyone is happy. The negotiations usually revolve around terms, conditions and pricing. We will help you navigate all of those details and will provide guidance when it comes to selling your home for the best price.
Once an official offer is agreed upon, you will enter what is called the “Conditional Period.” This time will encompass a few things that come into play before your home is officially sold. These might include the buyer’s mortgage approval, any home inspections or repairs, home insurance approval and the appraisal.
Time to say goodbye
Before you turn over the keys, there are a few things that need to be wrapped up. Usually there will be a final walk-through either a few days before or on closing day. This is done to ensure that everything is still in good condition and working order. It is a good idea to make sure you have everything moved out of the house before the final closing day, that way there is nothing holding up the process. Once the title transfer process and paperwork is complete, it is time to celebrate because you sold your home!
10k For Upgrades
If you are thinking of selling your home and it needs repairs or upgrades, we may be able to help.
Dallaire Realty will loan you up to $10,000, interest free to improve YOUR home!

Buying a Home

Whether you are looking to upgrade or downsize your home, Dallaire Realty can help you weigh your options!
Dallaire Realty has put together some helpful information to assist with the home buying process!
First Time Home Buyers
Owning a home may be your dream, but in order for the purchase to be the happy and satisfying experience it was meant to be, you need to ensure that you are financially and mentally prepared for the responsibilities that come with it. Preparing for home ownership requires you to take critical stock of your finances and your expectations. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself:
Are you ready to buy?
Owning your own home is about more than just being able to decorate any way you like, it’s about being prepared to maintain your home over the years, realizing that part of your income and time will go towards repairs and maintenance. It’s about being willing to take the risks of home ownership with a realistic expectation of the rewards.
How much can you afford?
It can be discouraging to find that your salary won’t stretch as far as the home you want to own. However, sacrificing a huge part of your income just to pay the mortgage can very quickly make home ownership a burden rather than a point of pride. It’s better to buy a modest home now and look at purchasing your “dream home” in a few years.
What is your debt-to-income ratio?
This is something that lenders take very seriously. Your overall debt should not be more than 40% of your income, and your housing debt should not be more than 32%. What 32% of your income will buy depends on where you want to live. In rural or downtrodden areas for example, it can buy a very comfortable residence and ample acreage. In highly sought-after urban areas however, it may not even buy a 400 square foot bachelor suite.
What do you want?
Do you like the idea of cleaning your own gutters? Do you shudder at the thought of lawn care? Would you rather just pay a fee every month and have everything done for you?. Would obeying rules about when you can have your garbage cans out bother you, or do you want to live in a neighborhood where everything is ‘just so’? The answers to these questions can help you narrow down the search for the right type of property for you.
Looking to Upgrade or Downsize?
Are you going to upgrade, moving into something larger and more expensive?
