Prince Edward Island is known for being the smallest and most densely populated province, made up of small communities and two cities, Summerside and Charlottetown. It is an ideal place to raise a family, to operate a business or to rejuvenate the mind with our friendly, relaxed people and atmosphere.

The beautiful scenery; the sandy beaches and swim in the Gulf of St. Lawrence; taste Island delicacies such as lobster and oysters; dozens of golf courses and relax in an environment where most people’s drive to work is 15 minutes or less.

There are 3 ways to reach PEI. This would include flying into the Charlottetown Airport, or hopping on the Ferry from Caribou, Nova Scotia which takes about 75 minutes and of course the 12.9 kilometre long Confederation Bridge, longest bridge over ice-covered waters in the world which joins Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.

Real Estate Info

Learn about the market and how to buy your new dream home or sell your existing home (or perhaps both). Just click below on the subject that you are interested in.



Buying

Finding the right Agent!

You want to find the right home, in the right location, at the right price - and you want to do it quickly, with minimum hassle. The best way to do that is to work with a professional realtor who understands your wants and needs, your time frame and your financial boundaries.


Why work with an Agent?

• You'll save time. An agent can pinpoint homes that fit your needs and dismiss those that don't.
• You benefit from an experienced negotiator. Your agent will manage your offers and counter-offers, ensuring that you get the best possible price for your home.
• You'll get the right information. Your agent knows the neighbourhood and can give you accurate information on local real estate values, taxes, utility costs, services and amenities.
• You can always count on great advice. Because your agent is familiar with the entire home purchasing process, he or she can advise you of your legal and financial options, and recommend appraisal, home inspection and contracting services.
Choose an agent who understands your needs. Here are a few questions to ask to help you determine if an agent is right for you.

• Will you be representing my interests?
• Do you have access to MLS information?
• Will you provide market evidence to support the price
• Will you look after closing and possession details?
• Can you be contacted at any time?

Working with an Agent

Let your real estate agent do the searching for you. The best buys aren't in the newspaper ads; most great opportunities are on "hot sheets" that are available every morning to salespeople with access to MLS information.

An agent's job is to:
• Provide information on the property and the area.
• Negotiate a price and terms that are agreeable to both buyer and seller.
• Help arrange a source of financing.

As a homebuyer, you must work with your agent to find the home that's right for you. Communication is key - tell your agent what you want, and be specific.

• Offer a detailed description of your property needs and wants. If you will absolutely not consider a house without a hardwood floor, say so. And if air conditioning is a "nice to have" rather than a "must have," communicate that, too.
• Be specific about where you want to live. If you refuse to live outside a certain area, it might take longer to find you a home, but your agent will know not to waste your time with anything not in your chosen neighbourhood.
• Tell your agent what you can afford. He or she can help you get a pre-approved mortgage so you know for sure what your price range will be.
• Communicate your likes and dislikes for each property you see. It will help your agent narrow down the possibilities.
• Commit to one salesperson and perform the terms of the purchase agreement.
• Keep an open mind. Agents know about those charming little areas that you've never even heard of. You might find your dream home in a completely unexpected place.

Protect yourself with a home inspection

That gorgeous house on the corner lot may look great, but it could be hiding all sorts of expensive, annoying problems, from a leaky roof to faulty wiring to a mouldy basement. Make sure your home is solid and secure inside and out before you buy it. A home inspector will determine structural and mechanical soundness, identify problem areas, provide cost estimates for any work required, and generate a report. It's a great way to avoid headaches and costly problems that can turn a dream home into a money pit.

If you decide to go ahead and buy a home with issues that have been flagged by your inspector, you can base your offer on how much potential repairs and upgrades may cost. Home inspection costs range according to size, age and location of the home. Your Royal LePage sales representative can recommend a reputable home inspection service or arrange for an inspector to visit your property.

8 Things to look for when buying a home

When you fall in love with a home, the things you like about it can blind you to its problems. Next time you go to an open house or tour a property with an agent, keep your eyes open with these top tips:

• Take a look at general upkeep. Is it clean? Are lawns left uncut? Do walls need paint? If the small stuff hasn't been taken care of, there's a good chance that bigger issues have been ignored as well.
• Test it. Try out lights, faucets, toilets, air conditioning and major appliances.
• Check for water damage. Look at ceilings and drywall for stains and bulges. Water that works its way in through a leaky roof or a cracked foundation can rot wood, create mildew and destroy possessions.
• Watch for "spongy" floors. Take note of soft, springy sections, squeaky or uneven areas - these can be a sign that costly floor repairs are needed.
• Check doors and windows. Make sure they fit snugly in their jambs and operate smoothly. Feel for drafts. Look for flaked paint and loose caulking - if wood isn't protected from moisture, it will rot.
• Look at the foundation. If you see deep cracks or loose mortar and bricks, there may be a significant structural problem. Soggy areas near the foundation are also a warning sign.
• Make sure there's enough storage space. If you are moving from a home with large closets and a shed, make sure your new house is able to store an equivalent amount of belongings.
• Measure. Make sure your furniture will fit into your new house.

These tips are for your own first (or second) look at a home. For true peace of mind, you should always hire a certified home inspector before you buy.
