When buying a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home can be fun & exciting, and obtaining a mortgage loan can simplified with the assistance of a professional mortgage broker. Once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing your home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own.
I will help you prepare so sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself whyyou want to buy a home.
Information for Buyers
Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific.
Separate the "must have" from the "want to have." Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target,
going from the general to the specific.
Consider which area:
- Suburban neighborhood,
- Country / Rural
- Older and settled
- Up and coming
- School catchment Area;
- Recreational facilities;
- Day care,
- Acces to Shopping, Restaurants & Entertainment
Think about home styles.
How much space do you need?
Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable?
Consider size and kind of property.
Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up?
Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. There are many mortgage options and mortgage lenders so it is important to compare and shop around for what is right for you. (Remember that mortgage rates are only part of the story, there are also various fees that lenders may charge.)
Select a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for their clients.
Information on using RRSPs for the Down Payment on your new home (Home Buyers Plan - HBP) can be used by First time buyers & for buying a home for a related person with a disability.
