Q: Do you only sell homes in Kelowna?

We sell properties throughout the entire Central Okanagan, from Peachland to Lake Country.  If you have a property to sell outside the Greater Okanagan we’d be happy to connect you with someone from our referral network that works in your area.

Q: Do you sell vacation properties?

Yes!

Q: Do you sell any type of real estate?

Almost.  Our Team is unique because of our broad and lengthy range of expertise.   We sell residential, strata, investment, foreclosures, development, new construction, acreages, farm, and commercial property.  However, in the rarest of cases, if we feel your property would benefit from additional expertise, we’ll gladly refer you to someone in our referral network who may be better suited to your needs.

Q: How long will it take for my house to sell?

There are many factors that affect the timing of selling your home.  A few of these are within our control, but many are not.  The major factor we DO have control of is market exposure.  We strategically manage the marketing and exposure of your home to target serious interest and qualified buyers.

Q: Can you tell me what my home is worth on today’s market?

YES! That’s what we do.  After a brief no cost & no obligation consultation, we’ll offer you our estimation of the market value of your home or property.

Q: Is now a good time to buy or sell in the Okanagan?

The current market is fantastic for both! There’s a reasonable amount of inventory but not so much as to direct pricing downward.

Q: How much do I need for a down payment?

The actual amount will depend on a variety of factors, including the price of the property you wish to purchase.  However, it is possible to buy with as little as 5% down.

Q: How do I secure financing?

There are a number of ways you can secure mortgage financing.  We work with all banks and professional lenders and have private mortgage funding available.  We’ll gladly connect you with any service you might need to aid in the purchase and sale of your home, including financing.

Q: Should I buy first or sell first?

It depends.  With a short consultation and a clear understanding of your circumstances, we can offer a recommendation based on what will be most beneficial to you.
