1. Buying Process Step by Step


1. Pre-Approval

The first step is finding out what price range home you can comfortably afford. We can recommend one of our key lending partners to assist you in determining the amount of mortgage you qualify for.


2. Working with a TeamGlasser.com Agent

We will work with you to identify homes that match your house wish list in your price range in areas of your preference.


3. Showing You Houses

We will arrange viewings of the homes of your choice. We will offer our extensive knowledge and experience to help you make the best real estate decision.
Tip: Dress comfortably. Wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off.


4. Making an Offer to Purchase

When we find your dream home, we will provide you with information on comparable solds which are a good indicator of a home’s current market value. As your representative we have your best interest throughout the negotiating process to get you the best price.


5. Condition Period

Your offer will be conditional to arrange final mortgage approval, a home inspection and any other conditions pertaining to your home purchase. When all conditions have been fulfilled, you will sign a waiver to remove the conditions, which makes the transaction firm and binding.


6. Deposit with an Offer

When your offer on a house is accepted by the seller you must provide a “deposit cheque” within 24 hours. Standard deposits range from $1,000 – $10,000 (typically 1% of the purchase price). The deposit is held in trust by the listing brokerage and goes toward your down payment or can be used towards closing costs. During the conditional period, if financing, home inspection or any other condition in the offer fall through you will receive your deposit back in full.
