Buyer Frequently Asked Questions

Buying a home is a challenging and thrilling experience. Here is a rundown of some of the frequently asked questions from both experienced home buyers and first-time home buyers.

I am planning to purchase a home. Where should I begin?

Researching, educating yourself about the market, fact-finding and reading articles are great ways to become a smart future homeowner.

First, it is best to get acquainted with your personal finances and carefully review your budget.

Should I buy or rent a house?

We get this question a lot and the answer is not that simple. Choosing to buy or rent is a major decision that affects your financial health, lifestyle, and personal goals. While buying a home can be a sizeable investment, renting may be the better option depending on your lifestyle and current financial situation. Remember, both provides you with a place to live and require regular income in order to make the payments. It is also important to ask yourself these important questions – Am I ready for the general home maintenance and associated costs? How long do I plan on staying here? If the answer is only a few years, you should continue renting.  

How many homes should I look at before buying?

In reality, today’s home buyer probably actually views a lot more homes than the home buyer of the past. They just view them from the comfort of their own apartment or home, thanks to technology. On average a home buyer looks at 5 houses but there is no set rule on how many houses you can view, we want you to be sure you love the house before making an offer. It is equally important to make an offer as well especially in a competitive market where some homes may go off market the day after they are even listed.
