Buying a Home

There are so many factors that go into purchasing a home.  What can I afford or even, can I afford the home I love? Condo or detached? Open or closed mortgage? What other considerations are there?  When there are so many questions, how do I know that I’m getting the right answer?  One of the best ways to ensure that you are protected throughout your purchase is by hiring the right professionals.  Here are some professionals you need to consider:

Real Estate Professional

When you are purchasing a home, you usually don’t pay a commission.  Why not let your Real Estate Professional work for you, showing you only the homes that meet your needs – in the neighbourhood that’s right for you?

Home Inspector

Your new home may be the largest investment you ever make.  Protect your investment by having a certified home inspector examine your new home before you sign the purchase agreement.  Don’t wait until after you move in to discover problems.

Mortgage Broker

Not only can a mortgage broker help you get the best mortgage rate possible; they can also help you understand the different features of different mortgages.  For example, the lowest rate may not be the best if the prepayment penalty is much higher.
