First Time Home Buyer Process – Getting Started
Step 1 – Choosing Your Realtor
There is no shortage of real estate agents in Vancouver, but finding the right one is very important. You want an experienced agent who listens to you and knows how to navigate the local market. By the end, you will be working hand in hand with this person so find someone you can build a relationship with and trust. A couple of simple ways to ensure you find the perfect agent are:
- Ask a friend, family, or colleagues to see if they’ve worked with someone they liked and would recommend.
- Spend some time researching and looking for reviews online. Some places to start are Google and REW.
Once you’ve narrowed it down to some potential options, we encourage you to meet and interview each agent separately to assess which Vancouver realtor you’d like to work with.
