Exceptional Marketing Strategies

Selling your home can be stressful for many people.

We begin with basic, traditional style real estate marketing that provides you with an advantage over trying to sell your Thornbury home or Meaford property on your own. Your property will immediately get listed on the MLS® web site so that any Thornbury Real Estate Agent with Buyers can find your property. This means that you get maximum exposure by all Out of Town Real Estate Agents who are working to help their clients find a home in this area.

Selling real estate may seem easy, but it is more difficult than most people think. To get the best asking price for your property, Doug Slaine can help.

Steps to Obtaining a Mortgage
Work with your Local Mortgage Broker  complete a pre-qualification appliacation.  Obtaining a pre-qualification will allow you to be the most prepared for your home buying experience.

Step 2

 Home search

Once you receive your pre-approved mortgage amount, work with a Real Estate Agent to find the best home for you within your budgeted price range.

Step 3

Make an offer  


When you find the home you are interested in, your Meaford Real Estate Agent will provide you with the expertise and information you need to make the right offer and protect you from any potential risks or concerns through this process.  Together with your Meaford Real Estate Agent you will determine the best conditions to include in the offer; we highly recommend that this includes a financing condition; your Meaford Real Estate Agent will likely recommend additional conditions such as a home inspection and other items depending on the property itself.  At this point you will likely be asked to provide a deposit with your accepted offer.

Step 4

Get approved for your mortgage

 Once you and the vendor have come to a conditional agreement, you will likely have a certain number of days to waive a financing condition.  For an approval we will require a copy of the accepted offer as well as the MLS listing of the property. While you are already pre-approved, it is important that you get a committed approval from a lender to ensure that both YOU and the PROPERTY are approved for financing.  This process may require an appraisal to be completed on the property, your Meaford Mortgage Agent will inform you of this based on the approval.

Step 5

Waive your conditions to make the offer a “firm offer”

After you have satisfied all of your conditions including the financing condition, you will work with your Real Estate Agent to determine if you are going to waive your conditions and finalize the sale.

Step 6

Sign your mortgage documents

Depending on the length of time of your financing condition, you may sign the mortgage documents before or after you waive your conditions.  This is something you will discuss with your Meaford Mortgage Broker during the approval process.

Professional Home Inspections
When purchasing your new home you should have a Professional Home Inspection to prevent any unwanted surprises or expensive repairs.  Your Meaford Home inspector is a trained professional.  Having your home inspected by a Trained Professional can protect you from un-wanted surprises or un-expected financial expenses.
Why You Need a Home Inspection
Buying a home is one of the largest investments you will ever make. It can be a complicated and stressful process. A home inspection by Napoleon Home Inspections will help you with this big decision by: 

1. identifying any safety or health issues. 
2. identifying components of the house that need maintenance, repair, or replacement. 
3. providing you with a detailed report which delivers an accurate evaluation of the property’s condition.

We are the Only Home Inspection Company in Simcoe County to offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee that is good for 30 days after you move in.

What is Thermal Imaging and How Does it Work?

Thermal imaging is the use of a thermal camera to capture images which show differences in surface temperatures. These differences are shown by different colours on a colour scale. Any small differences in temperature can be the indication of moisture. It’s a good idea to check areas such as walls or ceilings near plumbing fixtures and areas around appliances. If a difference is detected, it can be measured with a moisture meter to see if there is moisture present.

Thermal imaging is not an invasive test, and does not allow you to see through walls. Since it only detects differences in temperature, it isn’t detecting moisture directly—which is why it’s necessary to further investigate differences with a moisture meter. Also, it is not useful for measuring insulation problems because the indoor and outdoor temperatures may be very similar. For example, if the temperature indoors and outdoors is 70oF, it will not pick up any insulation problems because there is no temperature difference.
