The Buying Process

The Standard Purchase Process:

  • A written Offer Letter is prepared by your RE/MAX agent and presented to the seller.
  • Once the offer is accepted by the Seller, your RE/MAX agent will formally notify you (with Acceptance Letter) that the offer has been accepted.
  • The Acceptance Letter is copied to the seller’s attorney and the purchaser’s attorney.
  • Upon receipt of the Acceptance Letter by the seller’s attorney, a sale agreement is prepared and sent to the purchaser’s attorney for perusal and once approved, it is then signed by the purchaser.
  • On signing of the Sale Agreement, a deposit of 10% is paid by the purchaser.
  • A Title Search is then carried out by the purchaser’s attorney to ensure that there is a clear title.
  • A Conveyance is then prepared by the purchaser’s attorney and sent to the seller’s attorney for execution by the seller.
  • The purchaser then makes the final 90% payment to their attorney, which is then sent to the Seller’s attorney.
  • The purchase process can take 3 to 6 months, depending on whether or not an alien landholding licence is required or a mortgage.
