Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to determine the reason why you want to buy a home. Perhaps you want to stop paying rent, start building equity, have a place of your own, move up to a bigger house, or raise a family.
Next is the fun part. To start, decide on the type of home you would like and where you would like to be and make a list of your "wants" and "must haves". You should consider the area (Richmond, Vancouver, Downtown); community (Steveston, Kitsilano, Yaletown); particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment.
Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work. Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Consider the size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, an older one to fix up, or a tear-down to build your own custom dream home? Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
An important step in the purchasing process is to obtain loan pre-qualification with a mortgage company. This will help set financial boundaries when searching for your home.
I would be more than happy to refer you to mortgage advisors who have excellent reputations and industry expertise to successfully acquire a loan approval for you.
