Have Questions About Buying?

We have answers! Explore our Buyer’s FAQ to learn more.

A buyer representation agreement is a document that you — the buyer — must sign stating that you’ve given your consent to a brokerage (which includes the broker and agent) to work on your legal behalf when purchasing a home. While this might sound serious, all it essentially does is grant permission to your buying agent and their brokerage to act in your best interests throughout a transaction.

While mortgage pre-approvals aren’t strictly essential when buying a home, they make the process much more efficient and easier for all parties involved — including yourself.

Knowing exactly what your new home budget is before looking through listings means avoiding any potential heartbreak down the line if you fall in love with a home outside your budget. Additionally, waiting to get a mortgage approval before submitting an offer for a home opens the door for a more prepared buyer to swoop in and win the listing while you’re still waiting for your approval.

Terms and conditions are legal stipulations included in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale contract, which effectively outlines the details of your new home purchase.

These terms and conditions vary between each transaction, but typically include things like the home must undergo a final inspection before the deal is complete, or the deal hinges on the completion of a specific home improvement project.

If the terms and conditions outlined in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale contract aren’t met within a specified timeframe, then the deal is considered null and void and the contract expires.

When sellers set what’s known as an Offer Date — the first date in which they’ll review and accept bids for their listing — they typically do so in order to create competition between buyers (and ultimately foster a bidding war).

If you’re very eager to buy the home and want to sidestep the competitive negotiating process, then submitting a ‘bully offer’ ahead of the specified Offer Date will mean your offer jumps to the front of the line and will be seen by the sellers first.

This can risk offending the sellers and hurting your chances of winning the home. Conversely, a sizeable offer that looks too appealing to pass up can motivate the seller to choose your offer immediately. Whether you should submit a bully offer or not comes down to your choice and the guidance and best advice of your real estate agent.

A deposit is the first form of payment you as the buyer submits to the seller when your offer for their home has been accepted. This acts as a security blanket for the seller signifying you’ll be held accountable for upholding the terms and conditions stated in your Agreement of Purchase and Sale before a firm closing is reached.

A down payment is the total amount of money you submit to the seller once a firm closing is reached. This usually accounts for about 20% of the total value of the purchase price, or ideally as much of the overall purchase price as possible.

When buying a home, it’s ideal to use a real estate agent with expertise in your target neighbourhoods. For starters, a neighbourhood expert’s in-depth knowledge about your target neighbourhoods and their up-to-date housing data and statistics will guide your approach to submitting offers and negotiating with sellers.

Additionally, an agent with neighbourhood expertise will also have extensive connections within your target neighbourhoods, which can mean they’ll be able to show you exclusive listings that either haven’t hit the market yet or won’t ever get publicly listed. Plus, a neighbourhood expert will also ​​be able to give you advanced notice about potential upcoming listings or advise you to steer clear from certain areas or homes with a history of issues within your target neighbourhoods.
