The buying process

The buying process


We understand the relationship between homebuyers and agents must be based on trust, mutual goals and understanding–this is why we always keep your interests first and foremost. The real estate process requires negotiation of complex issues; we are committed to working in your best interests. We will help you secure the best possible price, with the most favorable terms, in the shortest period of time.

Dream Home

Dream Home


When searching for your dream home, it’s important to be well informed of the real estate market. To help you with this process, consider the following factors: What features do you require in a home to satisfy your lifestyle now? Five years from now? Will your needs change? What’s your budget? These are decisions only you can make, but we will do everything possible to match you with your dream home.

SURVEY YOUR FINANCES AND GET MORTGAGE PRE-APPROVAL

SURVEY YOUR FINANCES AND GET MORTGAGE PRE-APPROVAL


The first thing you will need to do is work on you financial credit picture and put money aside for a down payment. The down payment amount required may vary depending on the applicant and is based on the purchase price of the property you are planning to buy. Next you will need to meet with a Lender to determine your qualifying ability. Speaking with a few mortgage specialists is always recommended for best fit and rate. This process will give you a solid idea of what the bank is willing to lend you, your interest rate and monthly payments.

VISUALIZE YOURSELF THERE

VISUALIZE YOURSELF THERE


Once you have established a price range, it is time to decide what type of home/property will best suit your lifestyle or requirement. Create a wish list for your home including your 'must haves' (cannot live without/deal breakers) and 'nice to have' (special features). Important points to take into consideration are price range, size of home, location to schools, transit, recreational facilities and what the community is best known for.

MEET WITH AN EXPERT REALTOR AND BEGIN PROPERTY SEARCH

MEET WITH AN EXPERT REALTOR AND BEGIN PROPERTY SEARCH


Here is where I come in. It is vital to partner with a REALTOR you are comfortable with and who you are confident will fulfill your wishes and requirements. I will provide clarity and ensure that you are legally protected at all times. Once we have discussed your search criteria, I will generate a personalized search for you with suitable listings. Once you see something of interest or when I come up with a strong potential property, I will schedule a time for us to view the property. From there we will shortlist the properties. When decided I am dedicated to securing the property that has now become 'the apple of your eye'.

IN CLOSING

IN CLOSING


Your REALTOR will help you place an offer that the seller will either accept, counter or reject. Once we have negotiated an offer that has been accepted, you will need to finalize approval for your mortgage with your lender. Then a home inspection will be conducted to ensure integrity of the build. Next a visit to your lawyer or notary, to sign of on all official documents, pay or receive closing funds and then transferring of title and ownership is put into your name. At this point, Congratulations are in order! There are many benefits to home ownership - so Enjoy!

Sigrid, thanks so much for all your professional expertise, kindness and guidance in the sale of the family home. It was a heart-wrenching decision for Mom to make after 50 years of memories and raising her family there. Your attention to our needs was unparalleled. You have such a lovely way with older people and their families.

Kristy, C & J, Port Coquitlam

Sigrid has been the ideal real estate agent to help us deal with the sale of my parents home after the passing of my father.  She handled our listing with sensitivity and understanding and knew exactly how to handle sales subject to probate, and all relevant details pertaining to an estate sale.

Bill&Sue, Port Moody

You made a tough transition into a smooth one, and always considered each individual person's needs throughout the entire process. Your marketing and communication ability is certainly an asset, plus your kindness and empathy stands out especially in our difficult situation. Thanks again Sig!

Linda & Laura, Maple Ridge

After meeting with a number of realtors, we were beyond thrilled with our decision to have Sigrid Wilcox help us sell our Port Moody Townhouse. Sigrid has a friendly, warm and highly professional presence and as a result has a plethora of buyers waiting in the wings.

Natalie & Nik, Port Moody

Sigrid, thank you for the guidance and patience as we considered the many aspects of our purchase and sale. We always felt our interests were your prime focus while you managed our listing like a pro!  While we juggled buying at the same time, you always ensured that we had all of the necessary information to make solid decisions.

Sara&David, Maple Ridge

It has been our pleasure to deal with Sigrid Wilcox on several real estate transactions over the past 10 years, including the recent sale of our house and purchase of a condominium. In today’s increasingly complex residential real estate market, it gives us great comfort to deal with an agent who is professional, diligent & ethical.

Rod & Adam, Coquitlam

Over the years, we have sold one property and bought two properties with Sigrid. Why do we use Sigrid;  She is loyal, systematic, creative and always keeps her clients at the centre of what she does. Sigrid is experienced in all aspects of real estate, is an expert in her communities and she utilizes her many contacts in the field.

Petra & S, Port Coquitlam

As first time home buyers - Sigrid was a blessing in disguise. She was very patient in listening to our wants and answering our myriad of questions in full detail. She was proactive in keeping us posted regarding the market conditions and informing us about potential listings. She is extremely hard working and knowledgeable, she gets the job done right the first time! 

Carol&Shawn, Coquitlam

Sigrid, now that we have almost concluded negotiations on the purchase of our townhouse, we would like to thank you for all the time and effort you've put into the research and showings on our behalf. Your knowledge, professionalism, strong negotiating skills and friendly personality made the process a pleasure while doing business with you.

Kate&John, Pitt Meadows

Firstly you sold our house, which I though would be difficult to sell due to the age of the house and the fact that we had lived there for 20 years. The old house sold in a week for a great price and in a down market! You then assisted us in buying our current home! We are beyond grateful and we thank you for making it happen!

Kym&Brad, Port Moody

Dear Sigrid, I wish to thank you again for your wisdom, outstanding patience and expertise in the selling of our Coquitlam properties and the surprise purchase of our Maple Ridge estate. I think you are everything a realtor should be and then some, always ensuring your client's feel cared for and looked after.

Tessie, Maple Ridge

We recently had the pleasure of dealing with Sigrid Wilcox in the sale of our house in Port Coquitlam and wanted to say thank you for all your hard work, diligence and expertise in the marketing and selling of our home. She was very co-operative and accommodating to all our desires and requirements.

Jill&John, Port Coquitlam

Thank you so much for all your hard work so far.  We are all so grateful and thankful to have such a wonderful realtor who knows her stuff, and is always ready and available to us when we need you.  You have made a stressful process flow like silk!  

Scott, J, B & N, Coquitlam

You really distinguish yourself from your colleagues with the time and money you spend on presenting our home to the public.  From the amazing photos, lifestyle film, gorgeous eight page listing brochures and your very spiffy website. We will share your information with anyone wanting a fabulous real estate agent!

Danielle&John, Pitt Meadows

Dear Sigrid, thank you for all your time and effort that you put into the search for our first home. It is obvious how dedicated you are to helping 'your clients' and we really appreciated your advice, your wisdom, your professionalism, your good humour and we will fondly look back on the days when we used to rip around in your car:)

Stephen&Pun, Pitt Meadows

Happy clients share their thoughts!
