Congratulations! Buying a home or even thinking of buying a home is an exciting adventure. You will be joining the ranks of literally thousands of families who realize that home ownership offers a number of benefits including building equity, saving for the future and establishing a home you and your family can call their own. Your hard-earned dollars contribute to your mortgage, not your landlord’s and over time your home will increase in value and the equity you earn is ultimately yours!
In this Home Buyer’s Guide, I will take you through a step by step process to help you determine the type of Home Ownership that is right for you. To make your home buying experience as pleasant as possible, I have included informative articles on mortgages, viewing homes, the offer, closing details, moving and more.
Before you start shopping for your home, give some thought to your lifestyle, the features you need and want, affordability, and the neighbourhoods you prefer. Determining those features that are most important to you and your family will bring you closer to finding the perfect home for you.
