When you see the word “Den,” what do you imagine? A room for entertainment? A small nook in a hallway? A secluded space for relaxation? How about a small cave bears use for hibernation?  WHATS A DEN

The definition of a den room differs from person to person and bear to bear (okay we'll stop with the bear den jokes now). So, when a “den” makes it to the listing of a condo, apartment, or house, there is often confusion on what type of den it is or what that entails.  

Even amongst REALTORS®, the definition of a “Den” can sometimes be unclear. With no specific regulations to define this space, many buyers are left guessing or, worse, making assumptions!

Worried that the house you bought will look different when you finally move in? A pre-possession inspection, commonly called a “final walkthrough”, lets buyers verify the condition of their property before the transaction is complete. At a walkthrough, buyers have the opportunity to assess the property’s current state and ensure the agreed-upon repairs and/or conditions made in the purchase agreement are met.  calgary walkthrough guide

The final walkthrough typically occurs days from the closing date, before the home buying transaction is settled, and it is one of the last steps to closing on a house. 

While doing a final walkthrough is optional, we highly recommend it to help identify any issues before you close on the house. Note that a final walkthrough is not a home…

Instead of buying a prebuilt home, some clients decide to build their own home. When you, (or your builder), are building a home from the ground up, it could be months or even years before you need your mortgage financing.  Depending on market conditions, it could be advisable to get a “builder’s rate hold” mortgage.  This is allows you to hold a, “worst case scenario” rate for the completion date of your new home.
