Determine Your Individual Needs:

The reasons for buying a property vary widely from one person to another. It is therefore extremely important to discuss your individual needs with your real estate sales representative before visiting a property.

Before making an appointment with your real estate agent, draw up a list of features you deem important and determine your individual needs such as locality, price, type of property, number of bedrooms, surroundings, public utilities, and so on.

Check with your financial institution to find out how much you can afford to carry as a mortgage and have the loan amount preauthorized.

Talk to a RE/MAX Sales Representative

Once you have analyzed your individual needs, talk to your neighbourhood RE/MAX agent. If you are moving out of the area in which you currently reside, your local representative will be able to refer you to a professional RE/MAX agent in the area that is of interest to you.

Deciding to purchase a home can be an exciting, and often scary endeavor- especially for a first-time homebuyer. The RE/MAX Home Buyer’s Guide will help familiarize buyers on various aspects of the home-buying process including getting pre-approved for a home loan and a list of terms to help clarify the process.
