Buying Tips


Buying a home is a sizable financial investment, and oftentimes is a very thrilling and rewarding experience at that! I feel privileged and delighted to see the excitement when I hand homebuyers the keys to their new home.  Are you thinking about buying a new home yourself? I’ll be there to help you every step of the way.  In the meantime, here are a few simple things to make sure your experience is easier when a buying a home 






Before You Buy:
Learn some home financing basics. It might seem like an overwhelming thing to put on your list of things to do in the home buying process, but in the long run you will thank yourself so much that you did.  It is crucial that you know how to shop for a home loan that is right for you.

Get Pre-qualified:
Start with a review of your finances and then work with a qualified mortgage broker or bank to get a clear picture of what homes will fall within your budget.  This takes very little time and helps you find a price range that fits your lifestyle and goals.

Make a Wants vs. Needs List:
The last thing you want in the home buying process is to close a deal and then realize that you bought a house that didn’t have all the features, bells and whistles that you wanted.  Do yourself a favour, and take five minutes to sit down and write out your list of ‘must haves’ and ‘wants’.  That way you’ll know it’s your home when you see it because it checks all the things on your list!
