Military Relocation in Canada Frequent Questions
I just received my posting message but I haven’t contacted my Brookfield representative yet. Can I list or buy a property now?
In short, there is no problem listing or even selling your property before you meet with your Brookfield rep.
I haven’t sold my present property yet. Should I go on my House Hunting trip before it sells?
It depends. If you already received a solid offer or there is a lot of interest in your property you could start looking at new homes. There are certain situations where you can get permission.
In most cases however you will have to sell your home first. When you are on your HHt trip you should be in the position to buy a home. So sell first to make sure you don’t need to pay for a second HHT.
I was told that I’m being posted but don’t have the actual message yet. I want to put my house on the market now. Can I or have to wait for the written message ?
Yes. It is your property. So you can list it and sell it. If you receive an offer before you get your actual posting message just make the offer conditional on you receiving the message.
Be aware that many buyers will not agree to this condition or agree for a few days only. You can however, start the process of listing your property. Paint the walls, fix or upgrade certain items, declutter, paint if necessary. Make your property ready for showings.
