Coming In from the US or International?


Our exchange rate is currently so advantageous it makes sense to buy, not rent!

 

Buying property in a foreign country can be a confusing experience.  Canadian and Quebec regulations may not be what you are used to and the acclimatization process can result in needless delays.  You can expect a full array of services from our team of dedicated experts and regarding  rules and regulations, down payments, how to transfer funds, time it takes for a transaction, things to consider prior to disposition etc. 

We will give you access to our trusted network of mortgage professionals and fiscal experts who will advise you on your best course of action.

 

How real estate works here...

 

Choose your agent, sign your buyer agreement, give them your requirements, they will research,  take you on visits, offer, counter offer, diligence period, fulfillment of conditions and then closing. In the vast majority of cases, there is no cost to you for any of these services.  Not sure you will like our services?  Your buyer agreement with us can be terminated at any time, you always stay in control.

 

Note to buyers:   Our deadlines and descriptions are different here  i.e. HOA is co-ownership fees, Strata is condominium, co-op is undivided co-ownership, closing specialists are notaries, we operate under civil code, not common law.

The FRENCH issue: 

 

As wonderful as it is to have that European feel, doing business in a foreign language can be daunting.  Not only is our team fully bilingual, we also have a network of associates speaking a variety of languages that we can call on for assistance if it makes YOU feel more comfortable.
