It’s no secret that in the past several years, people have been flocking to Nova Scotia from across Canada. Although that has slowed down in recent months, it’s still nice to tell a story about a couple who’ve moved home to Nova Scotia!
Here was a scenario where all of a sudden, my clients were provided with a job offer to move home. The clock was quickly ticking and we were tasked with finding a home within the period of a dedicated house hunting trip. Katy came alone, while Junior remained at home - the trust!
We had a wide search radius from Clayton Park to Sackville to Colby Village. Wanting to stay within a certain budget, we spread our search out to find some areas that were suitable, with an eye for a home that didn’t need a substantial renovation. Sometimes to find the perfect house, you have to look in areas you might not have initially considered.
As it turned out, we found a gem in Dartmouth. When we learned about the home, it already had an offer in place. As it was a conditional sale, our offer would only be looked at if the first offer fell apart (due to one of the buyers conditions like financing or home inspection). When that happened, we were ready to swoop in to take advantage of the opportunity before we ended up in another scenario where we were competing with other buyers for the house.
Through the process, we were also able to negotiate a new roof and sewer liner to the city. In addition, the home inspection found some issues with the electrical we were able to get the seller to deal with as well. Net result - our clients got a great home, with several new upgrades, all just minutes from downtown Dartmouth and backing onto a lake. Not bad!
Every home buying journey is different. It’s our job to help you make sense of the market and what’s available. Then we ensure you are protected through the entire transaction so that you can feel confident and excited for the place you’ll call home!
