Finding the perfect home can be an overwhelming task. To help you get started on your search, Elizabeth Chi, your local Fort St. John Realtor, has created a list of the top 5 reasons you will know if you have found the right home.

As a first-time homebuyer, you may be wondering if there are many benefits to owning a home that has previously been lived in. A resale home has a lot of advantages compared to a new home. As your Fort St. John Realtor, I have made a list of the top 6 benefits of purchasing a resale home.

  1. Repairs and Renovations: A resale home generally means a home that has had previous owners. The older the home, the more potential need for repairs and renovations. This means that the house will be listed at a cheaper price as it may need updating.  You can use the extra cash you will be saving on the purchase price, to renovate the home any way you’d like. This gives you full artistic freedom to alter or decorate any area of the house to your choosing.

    The move to single agency is a significant change from the practice over the years when Realtors could represent both sellers and buyers in a transaction. BC is the first Canadian province to implement rules that require Realtors to act only for one party.
