Michelle and her team are highly experienced in helping clients with simple and complex sales and purchases. We are committed to helping our clients achieve the best value for their real estate sale or purchase, while providing confidential, professional and experienced counsel and guidance to ensure they are fully informed about these important transactions.

While land assembly sales can help homeowners achieve significantly increased value for their properties, they can also cause stress, uncertainty and disappointment without the right guidance and understanding of expectations. That's why we ensure our clients fully understand all of the unique considerations by helping to review offers and contracts upfront to help you realize your dreams.

The central and most important advice we offer for clients interested in Vancouver Land Assemblies is to carefully review all documents and contracts with their lawyer to ensure they fully understand the agreement before they sign. This can’t be overstated.

Let us guide you through the complex and unique considerations related to Vancouver Land Assemblies

Longer time frame – Land assembly listings, transactions and closings typically take considerably longer than individual sales. This allows time to find the right buyer, for various conditions to be met and plans to be developed. The key dates will be clearly stated in related contracts, and it’s important to understand those dates and what they mean, and that you’re willing to abide by them over time. Contracts can’t be undone easily, and often not at all.

Market risk – Real estate markets and property values will continue to go up and down after you sign a contract. Like many high-yield financial transactions, higher reward brings higher risk. It’s important you consider this before entering into an agreement and are prepared to “ride out” the market cycles and adhere to the dates in your contract.

Financial advice – It is important to fully understanding the financial implications—both benefits and risks—of your specific situation, including short-term financial implications and future investments.

Shared and equal commitment – Land assembly transactions require participation and commitment of all parties. Property owners in a shared land assembly listing are essentially shareholders or partners in a transaction. Each most be fully and equally committed for a successful experience and conclusion. If one “partner” decides to try to renege on the agreement, it will have implications for all the other parties.
