As you know, there are many things to consider before committing to the buy of your home. So, what's a good place to start?
Let us help you get the ball rolling with this big decision.
It's always the best idea to narrow down where you want to live after having your budget in place. This includes starting with what area you plan to live in. Which area do you like or where can you see yourself living in? Do you want to live on Vancouver's east side? Westside? Perhaps the Delta area?
Knowing which area you want will help you decide on other surrounding factors within the neighborhood.
Other factors to consider would include any schools in the area or nearby for your children, and how long your commute would be by car and by transit. This would include to school, work, and grocery stores, for example.
From there you can start to get specific and think about the details of your home. This would include thinking about things like: how many bedrooms and bathrooms you'd like your home to have, if you need a view outside, if more outdoor space is necessary especially if you have children or pets, or simply like your living area to be more spacious, etc.
Viewing a number of homes is the next step. Our tip: view right when the listing comes out to market when it's really fresh and when no one else has had a chance to see it.
If this is a home that you are interested in, that is when we can start putting documents together and make an offer.
We understand that finding a new home can be overwhelming for some people to think about. So, let us guide you through the process of getting your wishlist together so that you can check things off before finding your perfect home.
That's why we're continuing to create these mini videos to help guide you through and make the process a little easier. If you have any questions, please send them our way -—we'd love to address them in our future videos.
