Looking to Buy?
The Chell Team Approach.
We understand that buying a home requires a different approach and priorities according to your stage of life and future plans. The Chell Team has over 50 years of combined experience in helping buyers find the perfect home. We will offer our advice and guidance on each property so that you can make an informed decision and determine if it is the right purchase for you. We will provide comparable sales to determine the value and will always make you aware of any potential limitations a home can place on your current and future plans.
Your Personal Property Guide.
In our first meeting we will discuss the factors that need to be considered during your home search. These include your price range, desired neighbourhood, specific needs and the current market conditions. Together, we will complete a Personal Property Guide to focus on those homes that match your selected criteria. Once a listing captures your attention, we move fast to see the home to ensure this is the right home and to ensure you have the opportunity to offer in a competitive marketplace.
The Offer Process.
Susan, Patti, and Sarah are all skilled negotiators and are well-versed in the multiple offer process, should that arise. We complete all necessary paperwork and present your offer on your behalf to ensure your goals are met during the buying process. We also have a great network of specialists that can assist in the process including lawyers, building inspectors, mortgage specialists. We are here to take care of all the details so that the process can be as stress-free as possible.
Why Work With the Chell Team
Our Ottawa Real Estate Team will go above and beyond to make your buying or selling experience positive and seamless.
First Time Buyers.
Congratulations! You have decided to purchase a home, or are thinking about buying one. Home ownership provides a number of benefits; equity growth, saving for the future and creating a home for you and/or your family.
Home buying can be intimidating, emotional and sometimes overwhelming. That is why we are here to help you through the process. It is extremely important to select a Realtor you can trust and will be guided by your best interests. For many years, we have been helping buyers like you purchase your first home. We have the knowledge, patience and experience to ensure that your first real estate experience goes smoothly and is to your complete satisfaction.
Move Up Buyers.
If your home no longer meets your needs and you want to move to a larger home, or a different neighbourhood, we can help. When clients come back to us to ‘move-up’ we talk them through the process starting with ‘how big of a move-up should you make?’ For example, if this a forever home and you are family planning, we will search for a home near good schools and daycare. If you have aging relatives, and need an in-law suite in the future, we can make sure your next home can accommodate them. Let’s not forget the fun part – the features list – should we search for properties with a pool, an outdoor kitchen or walk in closets?
Should you buy or sell first – if you live in a popular area you may receive an offer before you have found your next home. We can help you juggle this to minimize stress and give you the time needed to find the perfect move-up. We love seeing our clients happy in their new homes, to find out more please contact us.
Buying a rental property offers the opportunity for extra income and an asset that, if chosen well, will appreciate. Many Canadians are placing their money in property as it is an asset they understand and can grow through improvements and renovations. Buying your first rental property is exciting, but what do you need to consider as a property investor?
Each investment carries different levels of risk which we can advise you on; you may get a better capital gain in one neighbourhood, but deal with higher vacancy rates and need the cashflow to support this. When we show you properties we talk you through the cashflow model and explain some of the ways you can lower your taxes through deducting expenses and losses.
Finally, what kind of tenants do you want? If you want to be a hands-off landlord a new build is a good option, compared to a three-bedroom house in a popular student neighbourhood. Get in touch with us to explore your options for property investment.
