  2. Determination of fair market value: For each of the properties you are considering we will research the market value based on simiar properties sold or offered in the neighbourhood.
  3. Offer - Promise to purchase: This is a technical process of preparing and presenting an official purchase offer (called a Promise to purchase) to the sellers.
  4. Negotiations: Once the Promise to purchase is presented, the sellers and buyers can counter-offer back and forth several times. Once the price and terms are agreed to by both parties the next step is the building inspection.
  5. Building inspection: This part of the process is extremely important as it determines the structural quality of the property. The buyer contracts the services of an accredited building inspector member of the AIBQ who will provid e a full report on the quality of the property.
  6. Acceptance, refusal or renegotiation of the Promise to purchase: Upon acceptance of the Promise to purchase and acceptance of the results of the building inspection, the buyer then concludes with their financing approval.
