Who should I speak with before looking to buy?
The process of acquiring a new property is an undoubtedly exciting experience. After going through just an MLS listing or two, there is a high chance that you will find beautiful properties in an instant. But before buying your dream property you’ll need to contact a Real Estate Agent.
What should I look for in neighbours?
Evaluating the people who will be dwelling in your building is recommended by many well established real estate professionals. By doing this, you’ll have an idea of how loud or how quiet your building actually is. Are there a lot of elderly people? Are there a lot of children? Are there a lot of parties/events? The answers to these questions will determine whether you’ll actually enjoy your surroundings or not.
Where should I be looking for a home?
What is around you? Is there a train station nearby? Are there any malls or grocery stores? What can you do for fun? Whether you have a vehicle or not, knowing what’s around you is essential. If you have children, look out for schools…how far are they? Are there any recreational centres? What can your children do for fun? As you may have noticed, moving into your first condo is so much more than how t looks inside.
What should I ask my Realtor before buying?
If you are moving into a used property, always figure out if anything happened prior to it being placed on the market. Ask your realtor how much it sold for in the past, and how much they think it’ll sell for in the future. This information will help you to see if this condo unit is worth the investment.
