Whether you are a first-time buyer or wish to improve your situation, buying a property is a lot of work. Obviously, it represents a major financial investment—often the largest in a lifetime—but it is also essential to make the right choice for your needs. So it is important to get a complete overall picture before making a purchase:
- What are your needs?
- What is your budget?
- Which area or neighbourhood do you want to live in?
- What services are available nearby?

We specialize in Montréal’s Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie neighbourhood, but we operate throughout Montréal, Laval and the suburbs. Call us at 514-894-9485.
Advice for buying a property
Whether it is to assess your needs, sign a contract, or to assist with negotiations, you can count on our dedicated team to provide the best advice.
Mathieu Dussault and Maude Lacroix are there for you every step of the way.
Assessing your needs
Clearly, your expectations will depend on your situation. Are you newly retired and want to move to a new borough or town? Perhaps you are tired of maintaining a big house or yard and you’d like to move into a smaller house or a well-located condo. A young couple might want to start a family or need more space. Maybe you just want a garage to park your car, or a yard to grow a garden. Are you handy and do not mind doing renovations yourself?
All these variables, and many others, must be considered so that your real-estate broker can offer you the options best suited to your needs.
Establish a budget with your financial institution
Getting a mortgage preapproval is an important asset in ensuring that the purchase process goes smoothly. Should you do this before meeting with your real-estate broker? The simple answer is “yes.”
First, this allows your broker to better identify properties you are in a position to buy. Also, in the current real-estate market, in which many properties receive multiple offers, buyers with preapproved mortgages have a head start when making an offer.
Since the budget is the most important part of your project, we strongly recommend that you consult a financial analyst or other financial specialist.
Only an expert can advise you on the maximum amount of your loan or mortgage and on the reimbursement terms.
Consulting your real-estate broker
Did you know that real-estate brokers are paid by the seller? Except in cases where the property is sold directly by the owner, brokerage services are paid by the property owner. If you are a buyer, why deprive yourself of this service?
When we meet, we look at your priorities, your concerns, and your situation. We can also recommend neighbourhoods that will better meet your needs.
When it comes time to visit properties, we make sure to ask the right questions and tour the property with you to avoid unpleasant surprises. We are careful to respect your needs and guide you when that special home finally turns up.
Whether before or during the search for your dream home, your real-estate broker is your dedicated partner.
Our team knows the real-estate market in Montréal and Laval inside out and can find the gem you are looking for.
