Home Inspection
How the counsellor helps:
  • The counsellor will find you a qualified home inspector.
  • For most provinces, there is no prerequisite to be a home inspector as they are only offering an opinion of the condition of the home. We look for credentials, and in most areas (including all major centres) we have home inspectors in place already.
  • The counsellor will pass on our volume rate with the home inspector, which will save you some money
  • The counsellor will go over the home inspector's report with you, in detail. Each counsellor reviews hundreds of inspection reports each year to hone their skills at spotting bad properties.

This is an important part of buying a home, and choosing a qualified inspector can be tricky. The field is still in its infancy, so specific qualifications for inspectors are not yet established.

We recommend experts that are qualified to do home inspections. They have more extensive training and have higher levels of qualifications, which include both in class, and field training. Choosing a home inspector is an important part of home purchase. There is no licensing required to do home inspections so choosing the right inspector has come to us over time and experience.

Some of the items should include.
  • heating
  • air conditioning
  • roof
  • plumbing
  • Electrical - Including outlets, fixtures, and appliances
  • Natural Gas System - Including Appliances
  • Mould inspection
  • any chattels you are acquiring
  • doors and windows
  • furnace
  • caulking
  • insect and pest issues
  • deck
  • should be done room by room

The inspection should be done in a report for you to review. Your counsellor would be please to provide any expert advice on the written report for your consideration. We work with a variety of qualified home inspection companies across the country, who are highly experienced and professional. These professionals have been part of our network for 20 years.

There are many times when you may be relocating to an entirely new city that is unfamiliar to you. You may be too far away to visit immediately. In these cases you may want to have someone meet you at the destination to assist you with services you require and an orientation to the new area to familiarize yourself as to where you wish to look for your new home. We are offering you our destination service program for just these types of things. The list of items you can request information on can be as simple as finding a place of worship, a playground, child care, or a medical doctor.

Mortgage
How the counsellor can help You:
  • The counsellor can help you make the best financial decision for your mortgage.
  • Port or new mortgage?
  • Fixed or variable?
  • Term and payments.
  • Mortgages are all fairly similar on the surface, but the terms and conditions as well as the lender are sometimes very different. The counsellor can help you choose a good fit.

We work with major mortgage brokers who can assist you in getting the best mortgage for your personal needs. Feel free to contact us for a recommendation.

You can, of course, get a mortgage through one of the major banks, but a mortgage broker can shop around to find you the best rates. We recommend using a mortgage broker from our list of suppliers.

  • Facilitate the process so that there is less stress and as little distraction as possible
  • Ensure the family is included in the process, making the transition easier

Since finding suitable accommodation is crucial for a successful relocation, we engage the services of professions to help find a suitable rental. Our counsellor will discuss your needs with you prior to you starting your search.

We complete a detailed needs analysis with you. Factors considered in the destination area include: family dynamics, characteristics of the neighbourhood, local amenities (schools, shopping, recreation, medical, etc.) as well as style, size, and price range for the rental property.

Interim Accommodation
How the counsellor can help You:
  • The counsellor can source short-term accommodations that are more suitable than hotels for stays of longer than a week. Discounted rates may apply depending on the location.
  • The counsellor can also coordinate dates to confirm availability when you need it, and until the closing of your new home.

Many people require temporary accommodation at their new location, if they have not found or completed the purchase of a new, permanent home, perhaps, or if their family is not yet ready to move due to schooling or other commitments. Our temporary accommodation service provides alternatives to costly long-term hotel bills and the limited space available in hotel accommodation.

We have a counsellor who will contact you, identify your short-term housing requirements and budget, identify and pre-screen available temporary accommodation suitable for the family's needs through the transition. There is a fee for this service so feel free to contact ReaLocation for further details.
