So you are thinking of buying a home in the Saskatoon or surrounding area real estate market? There are a lot of things to consider before making one of the largest purchases and investments of your life. For some people this can be an overwhelming decision and often people don’t know all of the facts to base their decision on. The following information will help you understand some of the basics when trying to decide whether to buy an existing or new Saskatoon home. If you are on the fence or have questions around anything about the Saskatoon or surrounding area real estate market, please contact me. I will be more than happy to answer any questions.


Buying vs renting is often the debate for first time home buyers in Saskatoon. You should feel confident when you make your final decision to purchase a home. In this section you will see the pros and cons of both so that you can make an informed decision about what is right for you and for your situation.


Real estate has proven to be one of the best forms of investing in history. Whether you are investing in your own future with a home for you and your family or you are purchasing properties as investments in Saskatoon this section outlines the pros of investing in real estate in Saskatoon.


Many first time buyers have a hard time getting started in the Saskatoon and surrounding real estate market. There are different programs for different situations and I can put you in touch with mortgage brokers in Saskatoon who can figure out what will work best for you. Once you have that set up we can start looking at homes for sale.


Different Saskatoon real estate agents have different approaches in working with buyers. You will hit it off with some REALTORS® better than you will with others. This section will help you discover what characteristics you should be looking for when choosing your one dedicated Saskatoon REALTOR® to help you purchase your home.


Confused by terms such as ‘amortization’, ‘principle’, ‘term’ etc? Don’t worry! Plenty of people feel just as overwhelmed by these unfamiliar financial terms as you do. This section will help explain these in a way that you can understand but don’t worry as you have a team of professionals on your side to help you along the way.


There are many things to consider when you are starting to get ready to buy a home in Saskatoon and surrounding area, and an order in which they should be done. This section will go over the best order to do things to avoid any unnecessary setbacks or surprises.


There are almost 600 REALTORS® in Saskatoon so why choose me to represent you in the largest purchase of your life over all of the other real estate agents? Experience, honesty and reliability are just a few of the benefits of working with me as your dedicated Saskatoon real estate agent. I am happy to provide references and put my buyers in touch with previous clients to make you feel comfortable with my process and so that you can see it is team work that gets you into a home.

Having done over 700 transactions gives me more experience than many agents in their entire career but definitely more experience than someone just starting in the Saskatoon real estate market. Even growing up in real estate in Saskatchewan there were many things that were new to me. At this point in my career there aren’t many things I have not come across or situations that I don’t know how to handle or who to call. So when you are shopping around for a real estate agent in Saskatoon I would be happy to meet with you and see if we can work together to find you a new home.

My knowledge comes from previous experience, viewing thousands of homes for sale in Saskatoon and surrounding area as well as attending over a hundred home inspections and learning from deficiencies noted in these inspections and learning about the good, the bad, and how to fix things. Some of the problems that appear in home inspections are major while others may appear major but can actually be pretty minor and take very little money, time or effort to rectify.

The experience should be mutually enjoyable. I often have clients tell me it almost feels like a break up once the purchase process is over as we go from talking every day if not a few times a day to both parties moving forward with other things. I like to stay in touch though so a call, email or text is always appreciated and you will hear from me from time to time as well.
