The purchase price of your new home is the biggest cost you will come across in your home-buying venture, but it is not the only one. A REALTOR® can provide you with helpful advice about other costs involved, some of which may include the following:

Application / Mortgage Broker Fee

Legal Fees

Processing your mortgage application costs lenders money. Consumers may be These are the fees charged by a lawyer to help you complete the home-buying process. charged a fee by a lender or mortgage broker for setting up a mortgage when Disbursements are the costs involved in processes such as conducting a title search, drawing up the title deed and preparing and registering the mortgage. income or credit issues become more sensitive to the approval process.

Property Transfer Tax

Appraisal Fee

These are the fees charged by a lawyer to help you complete the home-buying process.

The money you borrow for your mortgage is usually a percentage of the home’s Disbursements are the costs involved in processes such as conducting a title search, drawing up purchase price, or of the market appraisal — whichever is lower. The lender the title deed and preparing and registering the mortgage. will use someone on staff or an independent professional to make this appraisal. You are normally responsible for this cost. HST

Land Survey Fee A plot plan or survey of the property you want to buy is important to establish exactly where the boundaries are and make sure there are no encroachments such as part of your neighbour’s house or garage sitting on your land. Your lending institution will want to see such a survey and can let you know what their requirements are.

When you buy a new home, the entire purchase price is taxable. You may, however, qualify for a partial provincial New Housing Rebate if you plan to live in the home yourself. Ask your REALTOR® for details. A “used” residential home is normally exempt from the HST. Remember that HST is also applied to the REALTOR®’S commission and most other transaction fees such as legal and appraisal costs.

Other Costs Insurance If you are applying for a high-ratio mortgage — that is, if you are borrowing more than 80 per cent of your home’s purchase price — you will have to pay for mortgage insurance to protect the lender in the event that you fail to make the necessary payments. As your new home will be used as security for your mortgage; the lender will want you to have extended coverage and fire insurance.

When you buy a home you will also want to budget for utility bills, annual property taxes and maintenance costs.

You may also wish to check out the cost of buying mortgage life insurance. This insurance ensures that the mortgage balance is paid off if you or a co-borrower dies.

Why Use a REALTOR? Buying, selling or leasing a home or other property is likely to be one of the most important financial decisions you will make. That's why it makes sense to have a trained, knowledgeable professional on your side who can give you expert guidance throughout the real estate transaction.

ATTREE AVENUE LANGFORD $1,499,000 One Building - 1900 square feet +/Built in 2006. Two Lots - 22,000 square feet +/-. Zoning allows for many uses including drive thru’s. Central location next to banks and the main commercial area. Room for expansion and development, very under-utilized.

It is located in Victoria downtown which proven to be successful. Room for improvement by simply adding a liquor license. Favourable lease in place & 50+ seats.

The value a REALTOR brings to your next real estate transaction cannot be underestimated. In addition to access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) that ensures properties for sale or lease receive the widest exposure possible, REALTORS can help take the stress out of buying, selling or leasing. This means you have more time to devote to other important matters. REALTORS are skilled negotiators who can qualify potential buyers and draw up enforceable contracts. Your REALTOR knows your neighbourhood -- REALTORS assess market conditions and property values daily and have access to detailed market resources. Your REALTOR also has been educated on the complex laws and regulations affecting real estate and can give you valuable advice to help ensure your interests are protected.

From the street the covered porch beckons. Upon opening the front door your eyes will open widely to admire ceilings that soar to 18 ft. The open kitchen, eating area, and family room are the heart of this home with light streaming in through large windows and skylight. All windows point to the totally private backyard and south-east facing spacious deck which adjoins to a forested park. Upstairs is a refuge of 3 beds and 2 well appointed baths.
