We start by understanding your goals as a resident or as an investor. This first step will be to make sure you understand what you can expect from us and our systems. We will answer any questions you might have about the buying process and inform you about the Greater Montreal real estate market. Then we make sure we understand exactly what type of property you are looking for.
Getting a pre-qualification is the beginning of the mortgage process. It’s the next step in the buying process. It’s a free service and it will offer 3 big advantages. First, it will make sure we save a lot of time. Second, it will give strength to your future offer. The third and most important, it will make sure that you have negotiated the best rate and conditions before you buy.
The next step will be activating our systems to make sure you do not miss the perfect property. We will cover 100% of the market inventory! Our exclusive systems will make sure you will be the first to get all the new properties that hit the market and match your buying criterias. We will cover properties from all real estate agencies of the province, for sale by owner properties, estate sale, foreclosures, exclusive pocket listings and new construction projects.
Once you have access to all the properties that hit the market, we will start visiting the ones that interest you. We will organize all the showing and make sure that they match your needs before we do so. You will have our experienced eye with you during the visits to help with the decision process.
We found the perfect property! But, before we make an offer, we want to make sure you will be paying the right price! It’s not because an owner wants a certain price that the property is worth that price. We will make sure to inform you of the real market value of the property that interests you.
We will negotiate the best price and conditions for you. Once we agree together of a negotiating strategy, we will draft the offer, we will go and present the offer to the seller and we will negotiation the best conditions for you. We will negotiate price, inclusions, exclusions, date for the act of sale, date of occupation and more.
Before we go to the last step, we will need to make sure that the investment you are making will be a good one. We would not want some unexpected situations to come and ruin the buying experience for you. Does the co-ownership association have enough in the reserve fund? What does the budget look like? Any special costs coming up? Do they allow BBQ’s (you love BBQing). Is the building rental friendly (if you are an investor)? Can we increase the rents (for investors)? You will go through all the paperwork and questions with you.
We will make sure that the whole process from A to Z is easy for you! Our team and network of professionals (notaries, building inspectors, renovators etc..) will be available for you to make sure everything goes smoothly and you achieve your goal of buying or investing.
The service that the Cheff-Lanctot Group provided to us was beyond our expectations. Our broker took great care in helping us find a nice condo in a very good location for our son that is going to study in Montreal. His advice and information have been extremely useful for us as we were far away. We have already recommended their services to our friends and family. Thank you very much.
We made the right choice by choosing to work with Team Cheff-Lanctot, their expertise, knowledge of neighborhoods and specific knowledge regarding the value of properties had a huge impact. The broker was always there to help with any questions or concerns we had. He was conscientious and quite innovative in the way we approached the seller to make an offer. Finally, Matthew knew it was a very stressful time for us and made it as pleasant and enjoyable an experience as possible. We have already recommended his services to all our friends and family to buy a property!
