How To Buy The Right Home, Quickly

December 11, 2017

You’re in a rush. You have just three weeks to find and buy the right home. Whoa! How are you going to make that happen?

Don’t stress. Here are some tips that will help:

  • Get a pre-approved mortgage. With this document you’ll know exactly what you can afford. A seller will take your offer-to-purchase more seriously, too.
  • Make a wish list. Be clear about what you want in a home. Two bedrooms or three? A finished basement? A large kitchen? A spacious backyard? If you know what you want, you’ll be able to quickly zero in on the right homes.
  • Be flexible. You may have a wish list, but to find a home quickly you’ll also need to be flexible. Think about what you absolutely must have in a new home.
  • Neighbourhood matters. Generally, buying a less than ideal home in a great neighbourhood is better than purchasing the perfect home in a bad area. So, create a list of neighbourhoods you’ll consider.
  • Work with a REALTOR®. A good REALTOR® like me can help you view the best opportunities on the market and quickly select the right home for you.
