A short introduction to buying your home VIDEO
1. PLAN HEAD
Buying a home is exciting, but it is important to plan ahead. Get organized. The more time you spend doing this the easier it will be.
2. SELECT A PROFESSIONAL SALES REPRESENTATIVE
Our goal is to save you money. The Beardsley Team has access to the latest housing information, new homes coming on the market and we know the process to follow from financing to what inspections you should be doing before your deal goes firm. Bev and Keith encourage you to look up their client testimonials; ask if you can call their references. Do your homework. You want someone who puts your interests first. Find a realtor that you trust.
3. KNOW WHO REPRESENTS YOUR INTERESTS? What does a realtor mean when they talk about client service and customer service? What are their obligations to you?
4. KNOW WHERE YOU WANT TO LIVE. Sounds simple, but it is not. How long will it take you to get to work? What is the mix of housing? Where are the local schools? Check out our buyer advice and free videos for buyers on our web site www.BeardsleyTeam.ca there is a lot of invaluable information there.
5. DETERMINE WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD. How much cash do you have for a down payment? If selling a home, how much equity do you have? How much can you afford per month? Generally 32% of your gross family income is a good place to start.
