Important information about buying a property
Advice for Buyers
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 broker before visiting a property.
Before making an appointment with your real estate broker, 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 Broker
Once you have analyzed your individual needs, talk to your neighbourhood RE/MAX broker. If you are moving out of the area in which you currently reside, your local broker will be able to refer you to a professional RE/MAX broker in the area of interest to you.
