We're off to a strong start. Home prices seem to be finding their new 'Normal' and sales are brisk in a variety of price ranges - and in both re-sale and brand new homes. Rates are holding steady, but we absolutely recommend that buyers make a trip to the bank or talk to a mortgage broker BEFORE they start looking for a home. In fact, we insist on pre-approval - when we list a property, we tell the seller that we only show their home to people who have been pre-qualified. What if you fall in love with a property, only to find that it's beyond your reach? Avoiding that kind of disappointment is in everyone's best interest.
We have great relationships with local lenders and mortgage brokers, so if you are wondering what you can afford, or what type of mortgage product is best for you, we will be happy connect you with someone who will put your best interests first.
2014 promises to be another exciting year in Estevan. We continue to see growth - and with that growth, new faces from all over the world. There are programs specifically designed for new Canadians. Don't be afraid to call and ask questions. We're here to help you navigate through the buying or selling process.
