How many times have you heard of friends who had to move out of their rental housing because the owner decided to sell the property? It happens a lot. Such was the case when Dan and his wife, Bonnie, unexpectedly, found out that the house they were renting was up for sale. In their case, they saw it as a great opportunity to buy a permanent home for themselves. As a couple, they were committed to their decision, but realized it would take a larger team to make their dream a reality.
They contacted a realtor to write up an offer and, shortly after that, the realtor referred them to Auxilium to negotiate the finances they would need for their mortgage.
Because Dan’s employer was based outside of Canada, it took a bit more work to put together the proof of income and tax history the lender needed. Luckily, Auxilium staff were able to contact Dan’s accountant directly who laid out all of that paperwork up front, which made the deal progress quickly and easily.
About 6 weeks after they contacted us, Dan and Bonnie owned the home they had formerly rented. With everyone working together toward a common vision, they didn’t have to move and are now moving forward into a bright future! They’ve also continued to work with the Auxilium team for other services such as their home insurance and life insurance policies.
How Do You Choose the Right Team Members?
• Ask for personal referrals from family and friends before you select your realtor, mortgage broker, insurance agent, or lawyer. Get recommendations from people who can tell you firsthand what they did and can share their experiences with you.
• Interview a few professionals before making your final decision. Work with people who listen well, understand your needs and make you feel comfortable throughout your homebuying process.
• Do your research ahead of time so you know what to expect when you buy a property and what questions you should be asking your team. Find professionals who are direct and honest with you rather than those who will give you the answer you want to hear.
