Purchasing a vacation home or property for short term rental

KeyBuying a vacation home can be an exciting and time consuming experience. Our goal is to help walk you through the process. We have been working with customers from Canada, UK and abroad since 2002 and we would love the opportunity to assist you.

There are many factors that should be considered.

As a quick summary, you will want to start by looking at your finances and determining your comfort level with regards to your price point. Are you financing (getting a loan) or purchasing with cash? If financing, you must get your pre-approval done first. Once we have determined your price point, we can then discuss areas and communities that fit the budget. We will then discuss the needs for your new home such as bedrooms, bathrooms, what community amenities are you looking for (if any) and so on. Once you have selected your new home, we will then prepare an agreement to purchase the home. If you are purchasing new construction and the home is not completed, we will take pictures for you throughout the process. There are many other important factors and you will find more detailed information in the sections below.
