When you start searching for your first home or any home it is important to plan ahead and think about what you want most. Your search for a new home is special to you – so before you start, identify your priorities. This list should reflect your needs and the needs of your family, whether growing or downsizing. Hot markets are not ideal for finding a good match in all cases, but you will be better served at least knowing what you want and do not want.
Apart from needs, make sure you understand your market range and meet with a mortgage broker or specialist to obtain a pre-approval for your mortgage. This will establish your price range and speed up your offer process. Ask your financial institution or real estate agent about the pre-approval process if you are unsure.
