Buying A Home In Sherwood Park

Buying a new home in a beautiful community like Sherwood Park is exciting, but it is can also be overwhelming. Trying to find the right property that meets all of your needs, going through the inspection process, dealing with the banks and trying to obtain a mortgage; buying a new home is certainly a whirlwind that is met with a lot of anticipation, questions and concerns. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.


If you have decided that you are interested in buying a home in Sherwood Park, but you would like some assistance through the entire process, you have come to the right place! Our team of licensed real estate agents is highly experienced and have made Sherwood Park their community for many years. We will guide you through the entire process, from the house hunting to closure, and make sure that every step is as easy, enjoyable and as minimally overwhelming as possible. When you choose us for your Sherwood Park real estate needs, you can rest assured that your home buying experience will be a huge success. 

We are always familiar with the current homes on the market, and we know neighborhood values well, so we can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

Getting Started

The first step in buying a new home is to make sure you have a firm understanding of why it is that you want to buy. Is it because you want to stop paying rent and make an investment? Is it because you want to have a place that is actually your own? Are you looking to start the next chapter of your life and raise a family? Do you already have a family and they are growing and need more space? Are you an empty nester and the house you currently own is just too big for you?


Once you have determined why it is that you want to buy a new home, the next thing you should do is consider exactly what you are looking for. Make up a list of wants and needs. Prioritize your list. Things that are absolutely essential and either can’t be changed or aren’t easy to change would be considered needs, while things that would be nice to have, but that you could live without, or things that you could add on later, would be considered wants. For example, the neighborhood, the property, the number of levels, the number of bathrooms and bedrooms and the layout of the house would all be considered needs, while the décor of the kitchen, a fireplace and a bonus room would be considered wants.


Once you have determined what it is that you need and want in a home, our real estate agents will scour the area and look for the best homes to suit those needs and wants. 

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Once you have determined your wants and needs, the next step in the home buying process is to get pre-qualified for a home loan. We can help you with that, too. Call us and we will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.

We Will Find The Right Homes For You

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, we will help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them.
