Buying a home for the first time can be a really stressful process! You might find yourself asking “Where do I start?” and “Who can I trust?”.

There are plenty of fears that can shy you away from starting the process of home hunting. However, here are a few simple and effective answers to your daunting questions.

1. Should I get pre-approved?

It is important to know what your money can do for you. Getting pre-approved by your bank before shopping around will allow you to narrow down your search based on your price range. Contact me today to get connected with a trusted mortgage broker.

2. Who pays commission?

As a buyer, buying a home is expensive enough as it is! That’s why the good news is, you don’t pay the commission. The seller pays the allocated commission towards the collaborative brokers for the transaction.

3. Should I have an inspection done?

Absolutely! As a professional broker, I will always suggest to have an inspection made before the purchase of the home. It is important to have peace of mind knowing that all electrical, heating, plumbing and cooling systems are in functioning order.

4. What should I prioritize?

It is important to write a list of non-negotiable factors and a list of things you can live without. Learning how to be realistic is the quickest way to close the gap between dreaming of the perfect home, and actually being handed the key to your new house. Don’t forget, perfect is the enemy of good!

The best part of all of these steps mentioned above, is that you don’t have to go through it alone. Contact me today and I’ll guide you through every step of the way.
