Deciding to Buy

Purchasing a property is one of the biggest financial decisions you will make. Whether this is your first purchase, or you are an experienced buyer, this is an exciting time full of important decisions. We are here to help you throughout the entire process. Our goal is to cut through the confusion so that you can enjoy the excitement of buying a new home!

Why Do You Want To Buy?

Spend some time thinking about your motivations for buying it will help you focus your search.

Are you tired of paying rent? Have you decided to pay your own mortgage and not your landlord’s? Have you outgrown your current home? Are you looking for an investment portfolio? Are you looking for a rental property? Would you like a larger yard? Would you rather live in a different area? Do you want to shorten your commute? Having a clear sense of your reasons for buying will help you choose the right property.

What Do You Want In A Home?

Now that you’ve thought about why you want to move, it’s helpful to start painting a picture of what you want to move to.

How many bedrooms do you need? What neighborhoods do you have an eye on? What types of features might you want to look for to fit your needs (whether that’s storage and parking or layout and yard space)? You don’t need to have answers to all of these questions, but it’s great to start writing down some of the ideas that come to mind as a place to start your search.
