Welcome to BC Real Estate

Your Team

Your Agent
First, you need to find someone who best represents you, and can take most responsibility off of your shoulders.

Lender (Appraiser)
A bank is not just a bank. Having the right backer can be extremely important – it is your money we’re talking about after all! Make sure that your lender and financial representative is someone with whom you feel comfortable, and be wary of any lender who promises you more than you think you can reasonably afford.

Your home purchase is far too important a transaction to skimp on legal representation at the risk of leaving yourself open to costly future issues. Find a lawyer who is willing to take the time to answer your questions and who specializes in real estate law.  We could also be your legal representation, for Jordan Bankhead is not only a real estate broker, but also a lawyer.

Home Inspector
No home inspection is 100% guaranteed, but a few hundred dollars to catch a major problem now is certainly better than many thousands to correct that ‘surprise’ down the road. Ask your agent for a recommendation.

Planning some renovations? You’re not the only one! The home renovation industry is booming, and in some markets, booking a contractor must be done months in advance.  Feel free to ask your buying agent for help finding the perfect contractor, they will be more than happy to assist you in this process.


Your Plan


1.  Finding the right person to represent you
Even if you are not quite ready to buy, your buyer’s agent can be a wealth of information.  They can offer an inside look at your developing community to help you find things you would not have found otherwise.

2.  Find out the price range that you are most comfortable with
When deciding on the most comfortable price range for you, there are two great options for you to do so.  You could either use an online mortgage calculator, or talk to your lender. Just speaking to your lender is an extremely worthwhile venture – this is the only way to really get an in-depth picture of your overall financial picture and to discover exactly what you can reasonably afford to spend on a home.

3.  Find out what your local market looks like
The internet can be extremely valuable in doing preparatory research.  Start with your agent – he or she can direct you to valuable resources and immediately start e-mailing you real estate listings that may interest you.

4.  Find out what you will truly want or need out of the property you purchase
Before one can make an offer on a property, one should compose a list of what they need and want from their future home.  Once you have done that, and have taken into account your price range and local market, consult with your agent to decide what the best fit is for you.

5.  Find your dream home

Once you have followed all of the steps in your plan, and acquired all your team members, you will be surprised at how fast the process of buying and owning your own home will take off.
