Thinking of Buying Real Estate?

Helping Buyers make their real estate dreams a reality in and around Collingwood and the Blue Mountains

You’re checking out Realtor.ca and going to Open Houses – so why do you need a Buyer’s Agent?  Buyers don’t pay for their agents, the Buyers Agent splits the commission with the Sellers’ Agent when the house is sold.  For FREE you have an agent who is working for you and your interests, providing insider knowledge and negotiating on your behalf.  My mission is to provide my Buyer clients with an exceptional, full-service experience from start to finish and beyond!  I aim to exceed expectations every step of the way.  Last, but not least, while I provide professional service, it is my mission to make what can be a stressful experience as fun, efficient and enjoyable as possible.

Have Questions About Buying?

Check out our FAQs for buying real estate in Happyville, USA.

There are real advantages to being a pre-approved buyer:

  • You will know what you can afford and be able to confidently put in an offer that fits your budget.
  • A pre-approval could potentially save you money by ‘locking in’ a favourable rate, typically guaranteed for 90-120 days.  If interest rates go down in that time, you can still have access to the lower rate offer.
  • Give yourself an edge. Having a pre-approval demonstrates to sellers that you are a serious buyer with a confirmed financial plan.  This can help when negotiating your home purchase.

Before you buy a property, it is wise to have it inspected by a qualified professional property inspector.  The cost will be $400 and up depending upon the inspector and the size of the property.  In addition to a Home Inspection, the property may also need a Septic Inspection, a Well Inspections and water potability tests or a WETT Inspection of the fireplace.  We can provide trusted local inspector recommendations.   

If you’re a first time buyer, most or all of the land transfer tax can be rebated. 

First, here’s how to calculate the taxes:

 

Ontario Land Transfer Tax Calculation

 

0.5% of the first $55,000 of the purchase price

1.0% of the next $195,000 of the purchase price

1.5% of the next $150,000 of the purchase price, and

2.0% of the balance of the purchase price (for residential properties).

For Real Estate in Toronto, there is an additional Toronto Land Transfer Tax.

Your offer was accepted and you’ve submitted the initial deposit upon acceptance.  Now what?  During the lawyer meeting, you’ll be asked to provide a cheque that will include your down payment, adjustments and any other accrued costs, less the initial deposit.  Closing costs incurred on the day of closing include:

  • Down payment
  • Mortgage Insurance
  • Land transfer tax
  •  Adjustments
  • Lawyer Fees
  • HST (if applicable)

Congratulations!  The long awaited day is finally here! 

Before you officially close, I recommend a final walkthrough where we check all appliances, garage door openers, central vac, hot tub and pool equipment to ensure everything is in working order.  If something isn’t in good working order, we will communicate with lawyers and the Selling Realtor immediately to find a solution.

Once the sellers’ lawyer has received the funds on closing day, you’ll receive your keys to your new home, either at your lawyers office, your realtor’s office or via a lockbox on the house.  The time of day your home closes varies, so I always recommend moving in at least one day after closing.  Booking any moving services on closing day is not recommended.  

Once you arrive at your new home, replace locks and check fire alarm and CO detector batteries for safety.

Enjoy your new home!

We moved to Collingwood from Toronto. Emily was very responsive from the start. She listened and provided valuable insight into the local market when making recommendations. She was very attentive throughout the touring process. She successfully supported us with expert advice through a stressful multiple offer situation when purchasing our dream home. She made sure everything was arranged so that our move was as smooth as possible. Highly recommend!
by Lisa Smyth
Buyer
I have had the pleasure of working with Emily and have never experienced such professionalism and attention to detail. I have owned properties all across Canada and find it difficult when moving to a new area to trust a real estate agen. I usually find myself doing a lot of the leg work to understand an area and struggle to see the value in using an agent. But not with Emily... Emily is the kind of agent that works hard and educates the client on the market conditions, understanding rental rates and much more! She gives you a sense of confidence that you're making the right decision with your capital. If you're looking for a place in the Collingwood/Thornbury/Medford area then I highly recommend working with Emily.

Client Reviews, Emily Deane Real Estate
Our family worked with Emily Deane to buy a waterfront property in Thornbury and an investment property we are developing currently. As a Toronto-based building professional, I appreciate Emily's knowledge of the local market and inside information on the properties we considered. Having an agent who grew up in Thornbury set Emily apart from the other agents we met with. The greater team at Bosley was also efficient to help us work through some encroachment issues with one of the properties we offered on. I highly recommend working with Emily if you are looking for property in the Blue Mountains.
by Connor Malloy
Buyer
We couldn’t have asked for a more helpful and knowledgeable realtor from the purchase process to listing our new place for a seasonal rental. She was able to secure a seasonal renter and has been able to assist with finding local contractors to help solve all issues that have arisen. Emily has made this process so smooth and we have nothing but great things to say. She is attentive and an amazing communicator!
