Questions for Prospective Homeowners

Are you ready to buy?

Owning your own home is an exciting prospect. It's also about being prepared to maintain your home over the years, realizing that part of your income and time will go towards repairs and maintenance. It's important to understand the risks of home ownership with a realistic expectation of the rewards.


How much can you afford?

To make the process toward home ownership an enjoyable experience, it's recommended that you know in advance, what you can afford, thus, setting yourself up for success. By knowing what price range you qualify for, I will be able to show you the best properties, in your preferred neighbourhoods, that fit your budget. Your debt-to-income ratio can be a valuable number -- some say as important as your credit score. It's exactly what it sounds: the amount of debt you have as compared to your overall income. Lenders look at this ratio when they are trying to decide whether to lend you money or extend credit. A low debt to income ratio shows you have a good balance between debt and income. As you might guess, lenders like this number to be low -- generally you'll want to keep it below 40, but the lower it is, the greater the chance you will be able to get the loans or credit you seek. Personal credit ratings, relationships with lenders and size of down payment will also have an affect on the price range a lender advises is best for you.


What do you want?

Freehold, Leasehold, Strata, Bareland Strata.....Do you know what these mean? Do you like the idea of doing your own gardening? Do you feel more comfortable in a high density area? Do you prefer to have full control of maintenance schedules? The answers to these questions can help you narrow down the search for the right type of property for you. I am happy to discuss the different types of property ownership with you.

Keep your objectives in mind when visiting a home. Sometimes the idea of owning a home can overwhelm your practical sense, so keep your feelings in check.

We can go over the pros and cons of each home. I can help you stay on track while still keeping our eyes out for a great property.
