(HOME BUYERS BEWARE)

There are a lot of things to understand when it comes to buying a house in today’s market.

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Chi, your expert Realtor and local Fort St John resident and here are Five Mistakes to AVOID When Buying a Home:

Mistake #1 - Not choosing the right Realtor.  You need to have someone who is committed to helping you find a home.

Mistake #2 - Not getting pre-qualified for a mortgage.  You need to know how much you can spend BEFORE going shopping for a home.  You don’t want to fall in love with a property only to find out that you can’t afford it.

(FYI - send me an email to eli@elichi.ca if you want an in-depth list of the cost associated with buying home)

Mistake #3 - Not understanding the costs of purchasing a home.  From inspections to lawyer fees, you need to know the whole process and the associated costs that come with buying a home so that you aren’t given any unwelcome surprises such as additional costs.

Mistake #4 - Not evaluating long-term needs.  How long do you plan to live in this home? Will you be getting married?  Having kids? Getting fur-babies? There are things to consider when making a large purchase like this so that you can make sure it meets your needs today as well as the future.

Mistake #5 - Not getting a home inspection.  It’s always good to get a third set of eyes from a professional who is experienced and qualified to dig deep into a home and identify potential items that might be of concern to you prior to making a large purchase.

I want home buyers to win when they purchase and this is how it’s done.
