PREFERRED VENDORS OFFER PREMIUM PRICES
We have negotiated special prices with numerous local businesses due to our high volume of property sales. More significantly, we have confidence in the integrity of many of these vendors since they have worked with us for numerous years. As a result, they are prompt and trustworthy, constantly prioritising the demands of our clients. Any contractor that works with Multiple Listings & Real Estate Services clients does not charge a markup or any other referral fee; all savings are passed on to you directly.
The first step in house hunting is to find the correct agent. Buying a property is a major commitment with a lot of legal and financial repercussions, so you shouldn’t pick an agent based only on a “personal connection” or because they’re “nice.” The finest agents, like attorneys and surgeons, prefer to specialise in specific sorts of sales, market niches, or other areas of expertise.
That is exactly what we provide at Multiple Listings & Real Estate Services. All of our agents are required to have specialised knowledge of certain communities. While no single agent is “ideal” for everyone, we think that a combination of experience, training, education, background, and expertise may help you succeed.
It is now simple to find properties using web searches. However, waiting until the clients have found a home to choose an agent may not be in their best interests.
Our knowledgeable agents can assist you in finding the suitable area, coordinating financing, explaining the tax implications of house ownership, weeding out undesirable homes, identifying off-market options, and answering any concerns you may have. Additionally, during a broker tour, our agents will assist with the screening of homes and will alert you when appropriate properties become available.
Clients usually have a broad concept of the districts and communities they prefer. However, you should look through your criteria to see which places inside the communities you think are a suitable fit.
Our representatives will personally accompany you to a couple of the communities, give you a tour of the neighborhood, and show you a few typical properties. Our experts will also offer you with information on nearby schools, health services, and the potential for appreciation in each neighborhood. Clients should, in general, not buy a house until they are comfortable with the community and have seen enough properties to detect a great fit.
For a variety of reasons, being pre-approved by a bank in St Lucia or Credit Union should be one of your first priorities. In St Lucia, a pre-approval letter is not required before your offer is seriously considered. Knowing the loan amount available can help you decide how much you want to spend on your property and which communities to look at.
In general, you should start the pre-approval process as soon as you meet with your agent. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to address any concerns that arise. Our agents can assist you with this procedure and can refer you to great Loan Officers at various banks and credit Unions. Our suggestions are devoid of any conflicts of interest; our agents do not get any financial compensation for making recommendations.
Once you’ve found the home you like, read through the disclosures provided by the seller and listing agent. In St Lucia you may have to find your own Property Valuator.
The property and pest inspections, the seller’s disclosures, and the Land register are all included in the disclosures. To assist you in reviewing the disclosures, our representatives will offer you with a summary of the key points.
Valuation Report on the Property
The inspector’s judgment on the home’s plumbing, electrical systems, foundation, roof, and overall condition is included in the property inspection. This valuation report will include all of the issues discovered by the inspector. The cost estimates are not provided by the property appraiser. In most cases, issues discovered during property inspections are not addressed by the seller, and you must remedy them.
Disclosures by the Seller
The seller’s disclosures answer queries like if any renovation has been done and, if so, whether it was done with permits.
The land register, which you can get at the land registry in Castries, ensures that the seller may transfer the property with clear title and without any liens impeding the transaction. The Land Register lists any liens that may exist on the property, such as Mortgages and judgements from the courts. Problems in transferring title are uncommon and can be easily resolve through your attorney.
Documents for Homeowners Associations (HOAs)
If you’re looking at a townhouse or condominium, the HOA documentation will almost certainly be included in the disclosures or will be available soon. The level of financial reserves, if any lawsuit or special levies are imminent, and whether there are plans to significantly increase HOA dues are all important factors to examine. In contrast to the interest you pay on your mortgage,
Dues to a homeowners’ association are not tax deductible. You and our agent will go over the disclosures together and talk about any questions or concerns you have about the material. You should only consider making an offer once you are satisfied with the disclosures.
The escrow period begins once the parties have reached a contractual agreement. In St Lucia the agent or the attorney would receive the buyer’s funds in return for the seller’s property. A caution is generally placed on the property.
Your deposit which was placed in Escrow is added to the balance outstanding. The attorney prepares the deed of sale in your name for signing on the day of closing. Our realtor will supply you with the keys, garage opener, and access codes, if any, once you have signed and payments have been exchanged. Other information, such as equipment manuals, is frequently kept on the premises. You will be the owner of record, but a formal deed normally takes about 1 month to get registered.
