The Foundation of Buying Your New Home
If you’re looking at buying a new house or condo you’ve come to the right place. Our website can help you along the way of your home-buying process. First we need to make sure of a few things…
Are you ready?
Not much can rival the feeling that comes along with owning your own home, but sacrifices are something that come along with it. You now have a large financial responsibility, and the responsibility to maintain your new home over the years. Your pride of ownership helps make everything easier.
Are your finances in order?
Your first home is considered the biggest obligation you’ll encounter, so do it the right way. Avoid getting into something you can’t afford, especially if you’re faced with unexpected costs in other areas of your life.
What type of home do you want?
By now, you probably have a good idea of what type of home is right for you. To familiarize yourself with the terminology, here’s a quick overview:
Single-family detached – As the name implies, the home is not attached to the home next door. Styles range from a single-story suburban bungalow, to a three-story Victorian.
Semi-detached or linked – Two houses that share a common wall. Usually less money than a fully detached home.
Duplex – A building zoned for two families.
Town house – Also known as terrace or row housing. Several homes with a common style and joined in a row. They usually share walls on both sides.
