What to Keep in Mind When Finding Your Next Home
Many home buyers have the itch to find their perfect home. Buying a house is very exciting, especially if you are a first time home buyer. However, it can also be overwhelming if you are not aware of what to expect and find yourself unprepared. There are a few things that all buyers should be well aware of before starting the hunt for their dream home.
How Much Can You Afford?
A big mistake that a home buyer can make is not getting a mortgage pre-approval before starting their search. This approval will let you know exactly what you can afford. It can be heartbreaking to fall in love with a home that ends up out of your reach. If you are just starting to think about home buying and want a rough estimate of what you can afford, the Canada Housing and Mortgage Corporation has a great tool to help you figure out the maximum home price you should consider.
Determine Your Needs
Buying a home is a big decision. Determine what are “must have” factors for you. Is there a specific neighbourhood you need to be in? Do you want to be within a certain school boundary? Do you want to buy something new or are you willing to do some updating? It is important to distinguish between your “wants” and your “needs”.
