Do your home-work.

We're here to help make home-buying a little bit easier with easy-to-follow steps that get you from A to Barrie living.

  1. Step 1

    Determining your price range.

    • Find out your monthly payments using a mortgage calculator
    • Get a mortgage pre-approval at your bank
    • Take advantage of 1st time homebuyer tax credits, RRSP homebuyer plan and other rebates

  2. Step 2

    Benefits of buying from SEAN.

    • Better construction, insulation, and air quality
    • Lower energy and maintenance bills
    • 1st time homebuyer incentives and rebates
    • Start building equity

  3. Step 3

    Picking the right home.

    • Opting for a design with an extra bedroom gives you room to grow
    • Parks, shopping, recreation, schools, and accessibility are key

  4. Step 4

    Working with the right people.

    • A bank / mortgage rep will help you choose the right mortgage
    • A lawyer will handle all the paperwork
    • Your family and friends can help you make informed decisions

  5. Step 5

    Getting ready to close.

    • 30 Days: Set up or transfer your utility (water, hydro, gas) and any communications accounts (Rogers, Bell) 1 month prior to closing

    • 20 Days: Hire a mover and plan to move in day after closing. This will ensure you’re not wasting time and money waiting for your keys

    • 15 Days: Get familiar with your Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) Checklist so you can know what to look for during your PDI

    • 7 Days: Your PDI is a chance to get to know your home and how it works so don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions

    • 2–5 Days: Sign all final paperwork with your lawyer 2–5 days prior to closing

    • Moving Day: Closing day is the day you take legal possession of your home
