We can't wait to find your Okanagan Home! What's Next?!
Buying a Home?
Have a Realistic Budget
It’s always important to keep your budget in mind when searching for a new home – but in a competitive market it’s crucial to monitor your budget and keep in mind things like closing costs and other extra costs like moving and renovations.
Knowing how much you have available for a down-payment, pre-approved mortgage, and closing costs will help you spend your time productively while searching for homes within your price range.
Understand the Market Value of the Property
When you are searching for a new home, it’s important to do your research and get all the facts about the property to make a decision that is right for you. Doing things like reviewing a property title, researching the neighborhood with all its amenities, doing a home inspection, and reviewing any relevant documentation are all things that will help you learn more about your investment.
In a competitive market, time can be constrained, and you may feel there is not enough time to do your full due diligence. This could be due to many competing offers on the same property or a specified offer submission date.
Before submitting an offer without doing your full due diligence, consult with me about the associated benefits and risks. Requesting a home inspection before offers are submitted and requesting relevant documentation so you may review them before the offer deadline are both great ways to gain more information.
