Buying A Home

It’s a lot of work and can be over whelming. Read through these tips to help it all go smoothly.

First Time Home Buyers

HOME SWEET HOME
A home is more often than not, ones greatest expense in life. It where we spend the majority of our time and becomes our pride. Buying a home enables us to have full customization-worry free of landlord’s controlling what we can and cannot do to our place. A home provides comfort, security, and is the greatest investment one can make.

THE BEST STOCK MARKET
Canada, especially as of late has seen homes appreciate substantially in the last few years. This is the perk of purchasing a home, you get to see your net worth grow. It is a physical investment, unlike stocks or bonds. You are in control. It should also be noted that in Canada principal residences are exempted from capital tax gains

BUILDING EQUITY
By paying a mortgage, part of that payment is utilized towards your principal balance of your home alone. Therefore instead of watching your rent money empty your pockets, you can buy a home and pay your mortgage and see some of your money come back to you. It is the best savings plan there is as you get to enjoy the comfort and security of your savings plan while saving.

DECIDING IF YOU ARE READY TO BUY
Buying a home is a huge financial commitment, and you first must evaluate if you have the resources to make such a purchase. If you have your money tied into other commitments, maybe a home isn’t something you should be looking for just yet. It is recommended that at least 5-10% be saved for a down payment, but ideally more. The more you can put down at the start, the better off you are.
Another thing to take into consideration before buying a home is your lifestyle. What type of career do you have? Will you be travelling lots? Is this home going to be a place you are planning on staying in for some time? Buying a home is very expensive, and other factors are added on top- such as moving expenses. These are additional expenses that you do not want to deal with frequently, and if your life is not yet completely stable, maybe a home is not yet your best option.

Learn How to Beat Other Buyers to Hot New Listings

Every serious buyer wants to find the next best deal, that new property on the market that no one else knows about. Until now, this has never been easy.

Old and inefficient ways like driving up and down streets “hoping” to find that new property. Thumbing your way through ads in magazines and even searching the Internet are not very effective – the problem is that you will be looking at properties that have been on the market a long time. In many cases these properties you are looking at will have already been sold and some of the best new properties never make it to these ad sources.

Let me explain why these methods are so inefficient. When a house is put up for sale, a photo is taken and sent in to be advertised, it is then published and goes to market. The problem you face is that by the time you find the house in the ads, a week or even two will have passed before they are displayed, this even includes searches on the Internet.

The other problem you face is that these very same sources that you are searching through to find your new home are painfully slow at removing properties that have been sold. Once a property has an accepted offer, there is a ten to fourteen day conditional period to handle the financing, then as in the case of the Internet the ad that you are looking at is removed about seven to fourteen days after the conditional period has been waived. This means you are getting excited over properties that have been off the market for up to a month.

Now you can understand the difficulty of finding a property using the old methods of searching. Looking at ads that do not display the newest properties and getting excited over properties that are no longer on the market. But when you want to narrow down your search to the best available homes on the market, there is a much more superior way of doing this.

We have created a simple, efficient method to correct all of these deficiencies. With the use of our super computers we are able to gather these lists of HOT NEW LISTINGS the minute they are put on the market and forward them to you. Just think, no more searching through old ads and getting all excited about properties that have been sold.
