PEI Real Estate Report - First Time Homebuyers
Are you buying a home for the first time? Did you know that if the property you are purchasing is under $200,000, even just a $1 less, you are not required to pay Land Transfer Tax which is 1% of the greater purchase price or assessed value of the real property. That means you will save close to $2000. If your purchase price is under $200,000 you are even eligible for reduced legal registration fees.
These are just some of the things you should be aware of when buying a home for the first time. At Century 21 Colonial Realty, we have a New Home Buyer Checklist which itemizes all of the details that you need to be on top of when buying. Let a Century 21 Colonial Realtor help you navigate through what can sometimes be a confusing process for first time home buyers.
