In many scenarios there will be a subject period. Expect a two to ten-day due diligence period for approval of your financing, the building inspection, the review of all the relevant documents, zoning and disclosures. On occasion, purchasers will submit a subject free offer and, if this is the case, we will walk you through all of your options and advise you of any precautions or issues that you should be aware of prior to writing an offer without subjects. We will always ensure you are able to do ample due diligence. At the end of this period we will remove subjects if all is in order, else we will recalibrate your search.

You now own a home and the sale will complete when the title transfers to your name. If you have purchased a detached home, you are free to do any renovations or to move in as-is. If you have purchased an attached property, you can now make a request to the strata in order to start any renovations or you can move in as-is or rent it out. Looking for a pre-sale? The process is different and we can help you with this too.


We recommend locations that suit your lifestyle preferences.

Purchasing a property requires defining what you value as well as what the market overall places a value on; this is what we call “being a value buyer” – buying homes that are more likely to always retain value over others. We know the city and understand why people buy in certain locations as opposed to others and why some areas have more future value. Understanding demographics and psychology helps us recommend locations that suit your lifestyle preferences.
