The purchasing process is an exciting one! Buyers may focus on items such as:
- Number of rooms
- Layout of home
- Size of lot
- Specific finishes
While focusing on aesthetics and logistical dynamics for a first purchase are important, it is essential to have a licensed Real Estate Sales Representative working with buyers to help them see the big picture. There are many considerations when purchasing real estate – some with lasting implications!
At Avenue Realty Inc., Brokerage our Realtors are well versed in handling first time home buyers’ questions and concerns. Conversely, our Realtors will ask many questions of the buyer as well.
We employ a consultative approach as a means of achieving a partnership of involvement and commitment.
Decision making remains the responsibility of the buyer, but only after consultation, researching of options, analyzing different solutions and the presentation of these findings to the buyer.
We will ask questions regarding:
- Community preference
- School requirements
- Work requirements/status
- Financial requirements
- Necessities versus wants
- New dynamics not considered
- Resale considerations
- Real estate portfolio building
Once we establish a starting point from our original discovery, we will custom tailor a plan to assist a buyer in achieving their goals and re-evaluate these goals and strategies as required to ensure we are on track.
There are many government programmes available to first time home buyers that are designed to make the purchase of a first home more affordable. It is important to access these and they include:
- First Time Home Buyer’s Tax Credit
- RRSP Home Buyer’s Plan
- Land Transfer Tax Rebate
