Buying Guide


Realtors® are trained professionals in the real estate field (with continuing educational requirements) who are passionate about guiding you through the intricacies of the largest single purchase you will likely make in your lifetime – your home.

TrilliumWest sales representatives pride themselves in keeping up-to-date. We study market trends, know applicable contract law, and have an in-depth knowledge of our community. Perhaps the most overlooked difference is our ability to know not only what is on the MLS® system, but what properties are not. The inside scoop can be the difference between finding the perfect home and missing out.

Our connected sales professionals have extensive backgrounds in investment properties, new construction projects, luxury homes and everything in between. We know our product and our market and will help you buy with knowledge and confidence.

A TrilliumWest Realtor® has the expertise to move you seamlessly through the purchase process. We help to align you with the best possible specialists like lawyers, finance professionals, contractors and inspectors. We help to avoid costly mistakes.

Whether purchasing a resale or a newly constructed home, this advice is available to you at no cost.

A TrilliumWest sales professional knows the city and the market, and is held to a high standard of professionalism by our Brokerage. As your Realtor®, it is our responsibility to educate and protect you, the buyer, and ensure that the purchasing process is a successful and rewarding experience.

Seriously, why purchase a home any other way?


Property Search

  • Establish your qualified price range
  • Thoroughly research potential properties in your range, both on and off MLS®
  • Schedule viewings of selected properties
  • Carefully compare the advantages and disadvantages of each potential property

  • Repeat this process as long as necessary, building your confidence in any decision until we find the perfect fit

Offers & Contracts

  • Explain and establish the formal buyer-agency agreement. Your TrilliumWest Realtor® represents you, the buyer, at no cost
  • Explain the agreement of purchase and sale and the general process that will be followed

Closing & Costs

  • Just prior to closing you will visit with your lawyer to sign final documents relating to the purchase of the home, including financing and insurance documents
  • Your lawyer will go over statement of adjustments explaining any costs or credits
  • Closing costs will vary depending on purchase price of home, but will likely include;
    -- lawyers fees and disbursements
    -- land transfer tax (rebates may be available)
    -- mortgage fees (if applicable)
    -- new development charges (if applicable)
    -- new development enrollment fees (if applicable)

  • On the day of closing, title is conveyed and keys are
    supplied to the buyer

  • Now you and your TrilliumWest Realtor® can celebrate!
