3 Things to Consider Before Buying a Home

Don’t make an offer without taking these points into consideration.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Carefully consider the commute time to your workplace, school, daycare, as well as travel time to the train stations and expressways.

KNOW WHAT MAINTENANCE WILL BE NEEDED IN THE HOME

It is very important to know the age and condition of big ticket items in the home. Roof, windows and major mechanicals. An inspection will provide insight to the condition of these components.

Consider the age and replacement cost.  With a savings plan you will be ready when the time comes to replace them. 

MAKE A PRIORITY LIST

Sit down and know ahead of time what is truly important to your family. Write a priority list starting with non negotiable items and continue with items you may have flexibility with. It’s very hard to find the “perfect home”, but having your priorities will keep you on the right track. Keep in mind what items can’t be changed in a home and make sure you can live with them.
