#TIPTUESDAY - What To Know Before Buying

#1 Know Your Budget! - The first step in doing so is to talk to a mortgage broker to get a pre-approval. This will establish your "shopping range".

#2 Know Who You Are! - Are you a handy person? Do you have time to take on home projects or repairs? Are you good at budgeting for these projects/repairs? If the answer is yes, buy a detached home. If not, a strata property is your best bet. All the expenses/budgeting is taken care of with a "monthly strata fee".

#3 Know Your Goals! - Is this home a short term investment home, or a long term home to settle roots in? This will impact the neighborhood, size and type of home you buy.

These are only a few of the many questions you need to ask yourself. So, if you have any questions or need help with this process, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at Vantage Real Estate.
