1. Your Real Estate Agent!
Even if you’re not quite ready to buy, speak to me about your wants and needs in a home and I can be guiding you right from the start!!
2. Find out what your price range is
Online mortgage calculators are a good place to start, but as you get closer to being ready to buy, there is no substitute for a written mortgage pre-approval. Just speaking to your lender is an extremely worthwhile venture – this is the only way to really get an in-depth picture of your overall financial picture and to discover exactly what you can reasonably afford to spend on a home (and possibly on renovating).
3. Find out what your local market looks like
I can direct you to valuable resources and immediately start e-mailing you real estate listings that may interest you (or at least give you a better idea of what your needs and wants are).
4. Find out what your true needs and wants are
Compose a needs/wants list, such as how many bedrooms, bathrooms, do you need a garage, what does your dream kitchen look like and do you want some aceage? Takes into consideration your local market conditions, your price range, and don't hesitate to call me for advice on any of these things and mortgages.
5. Now, let's find your dream home!
Once you’re ready to act, you may be surprised by how quickly you can make a decision. Armed with your pre-approval, a little market knowledge, and your needs/wants list and when you see ‘the house’, put in an offer!!! I It really can be that easy!
