- Arrange a pre-approval mortgage from your lender and get your finances in order – Shop for lender that will give you the best financing options. When you fall in love with a house, nothing is worse than failing to get financing from your lender. BE PREPARED.
- Buy what you can afford – Make a list of your needs and wants and look for a house within your means. There are expenses related to the purchase of a home, such as land transfer tax, legal fees, property taxes, insurance, etc, so don’t forget to budget that in. AVOID SURPRISES - Find out the costs and expenses when purchasing a home.
- Always hire professional to do the job – When you hire a licenced real estate agent to help you to purchase a home, your interests are protected. Buying a home is emotional for many home buyers, especially during negotiation. Emotions can often lead to pitfalls. A real estate agent will provide their level of expertise and guidance, give recommendations to buyers to make the right decision and negotiate the best price to get you the house. It is a WIN-WIN situation.
- Think long term investment – A home is a very important and smartest investment that an average person will ever make. So think buying a home as a long term investment and take that decision seriously. PLAN FORWARD. PLAN SMART.
