Local frontline hero, Mathew , a full time registered nurse here in Sudbury has finally found 'the one'! The search for his first home is over and he already has a tenant, his cat Bob!
Being listened to, involved and updated with listings that met my search criteria is what I was looking for in a real estate agent. Tristan Ritchie helped me as a first time home buyer by explaining the entire process at our initial meeting. He explained viewing the houses, what to look for while viewing, what to stay away from as well as things he has seen in the past. I would 100% recommend Tristan to friends who may be looking to buy property. He was always available and answered all of the questions I had throughout this journey as a first time home buyer!
Location wise, I wanted to be closer to work. As for the must have features for the house, I wanted a well kept - up to date home, a basement and a backyard. Having the opportunity to have a thorough house inspection performed prior to the purchase was also a big must!
The experience of searching for a house for me was very stressful due to the competitive market right now in Sudbury. I would find a house I like only to find out it had already been sold for 20-30k over asking price.
Being able to view all different types of houses and the work that went into them. I saw a lot of 'catfish' houses that appeared nice in pictures, however, had many things wrong with the design and interior. Having Tristan there to point these out was a huge help!
I would recommend seeing as many houses as possible. By seeing more houses, you gain a better understanding of what you can get at your desired price and what houses are listed too high for what they offer. It is a long stressful process, but it is also lots of fun viewing the different homes in different areas of town!
