I want to buy a house “private sale from owner” what do I need to know?

I want to buy a house. Its being sold directly from the owner. I have a pre-approval for the mortgage loan, now what do I do??

When asking questions, what do I need to know and what should I do first? I am in Canada. I would like any info possible as I am young and this will be my first home.

Please any info would be great, step-by-step process would be even better. Thanks.
