BUYERS FIRST STEPS
Toward finding & buying your new home.
Make sure you are ready to buy:
Are you ready?
Your house will give you pride of ownership and a financial “place card” in real estate. It will also require care and upkeep on an ongoing basis.
Check your bank account:
Your home will most likely be your largest financial obligation. You will need to have developed saving skills & have a reasonable down payment. Talk to your financial institution and investigate different mortgage options & lenders.
Is this a good time to buy:
Markets go up, markets go down and even the smartest experts can’t accurately predict when a market will peak or bottom out. The good news is, if you’re buying a home as a long term-investment and/or for long-term enjoyment, you’re protected from short-term changes in the market. Over time real estate has almost always increased in value.
