Whether you're a first time home buyer or an experienced investor, I'm committed to guiding you through the buying process.
There are many important questions to consider when purchasing a home. Avoid time-consuming and costly mistakes and put my experience to use.
ARE YOU READY?
FOR SELF-USE OR INVESTMENT?
WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET? Start by knowing your maximum budget and understand your mortgage financing options before you start looking at properties by consulting a trusted/certified Mortgage Advisor at your banking institution or a reputable Mortgage Broker to see if you're qualified. It is highly advisable that you have a minimum of 20% of Deposit/Down Payment in your bank account and a mortgage pre-approval before you start looking at properties.
Remember there are additional costs on top of the purchase price including: - Property Transfer Tax - 5% GST (if new construction) - Mortgage Financing fees - Legal/Notary fees - Title Disbursement fees - Property Taxes
There are no realtor commission fees to the Buyer, it is the Seller who pays the commission fees for both the Buyer's & Seller's Agents on successful completion.
LOCATION? Things to consider when choosing the location of your next home:
safety and security of the neighbourhood
topography, landscapes & directions
convenience for every day life (work, school, family, medical etc...)
close to parks, community centre & recreation
school catchment and private education
access to public transit (skytrain, bus, etc...)
proximity to commercial shops & services
future development of the area based on the official city plans & rezoning
reliable access to city utilities & services
TIMING? Does the Completion Date and Possession Dates work for you? If it's a Presale or New Construction property, are you able to handle any unexpected delays with completion?
HOME STYLE & FEATURES? Are you looking for Studio, 1,2 or 3 Bedrooms? Penthouse? Townhouse? Detached House? Concrete or wood frame? Views? Air-conditioning? Unique features? Finishing & construction quality? Developer reputation? Maintenance? Home Warranty?
