Servicing Hinton and Area in Residential and Commercial Real Estate



Let me help you every step of the way.  When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions!   The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home.   Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process.   When you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, though, the rewards are unquestionable.


I will be at your side every step of the way and will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.


I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, and know neighborhood values well. I will help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.


Your First Step

Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home:  To stop paying rent?  To start building equity?   To have a place of your own?   To raise a family?   To entertain business associates?   To move up to a bigger house?   Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be.   Be specific.   Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."


Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific.   Consider area (in Hinton, just out of Hinton, Brule, Obed, Miller's Lake, etc.); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; Hill, Valley, or Thompson Lake) and details (recreational facilities, schools, transportation, day care, library, shopping, entertainment, commute).


Think about home styles.  How much space do you need?   Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable?   Consider size and kind of property.   Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell.   Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.


Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.


Under  BUYER RESOURCES I have a list of the Mortgage Brokers and Financial Institutions in Hinton.   These mortgage professionals have a reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for their clients.


Debbie Will Find the Right Homes for You

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using our knowledge and database of information on the properties in Hinton and Area.


You can even search My Listings here on this website, Office Listings, or the website for all the listed properties in the area.


Debbie Will Help You Every Step of the Way

I will help you complete your financing, guide you through any inspections, and close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.
