We are familiar with the various neighbourhoods throughout the Lower Mainland. With this knowledge we can help you determine which properties are priced right and offer suggestions as to the communities which best suit your needs.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and type of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the needs above, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
