Not Just A Gracious Home….A Way of Life!

$679,500

REALTORS You can’t afford not to be here!

Live where trees are tall and air is clean. High on a hill with views of Georgia Strait and the mainland mountains. A cheery entry reflects the friendly spirit of this home by featuring a unique display wall that separates the kitchen from the hall. The Living Room, complete with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams invites you to sit by the fireplace and enjoy the warmth. The rough-hewn mantle and cedar paneling are reminiscent of a country lodge. You can dine by a picture window and enjoy the views and still be connected to the coziness of the Living Room. More than an efficient workroom, the kitchen is a real showplace too. This kitchen makes cooking simple with a place for everything and a separate pantry that would make any cook envious! Three bedrooms, including the master suite with a five piece ensuite and walk-in closet make this a home that will work for everyone. The main floor is finished with a big family room that will take you out onto your covered patio and 12 man hot tub area. The yard is beautifully landscaped with lots of area to enjoy your sports or start a garden. Upstairs you will find a big bonus room, another 5 pce bath, a big bedroom and a small office/den. You can have company and offer them a great get away right in your home. MLS#328278

Buying a Home: What Can You Afford?

Parksville-Qualicum Beach Realty

Independently Owned & Operated

679 Memorial Avenue, Qualicum Beach

t. 250.752.6926 • tf. 1.800.224.5906 www.daveney.com • daveney@shaw.ca

Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the If you’re thinking about buying a home, a question that will undoubtedly weigh heavily on your mind is: “How much can I afford?” Obviously, affordability will play a major part in your decision making process. You want to be able to buy something you like, but you don’t want to feel stretched to the limit when it comes to meeting your financial obligations. Once you discover exactly what you can afford, you can be more realistic in your expectations. If you’re like most people, you lack the funds to make a purchase without seeking substantial help from a lending institution. In addition to coming up with a down payment, you’ll have to arrange a mortgage.

C23

667 Tamarack Drive, Qualicum Beach $379,000

Monte Vista Drive Qualicum Beach $399,000

Basically, there are two types of costs involved in buying a home: The amount of money you’ll need for the initial purchase -- consisting of the down payment plus additional costs such as legal fees, inspection fees and taxes; and The ongoing costs of paying back your mortgage, along with monthly operating costs for utilities, maintenance, insurance and annual property taxes. Lenders use several factors in judging your ability to handle a mortgage, including your income, employment record and credit worthiness. However, one way you can estimate the price range you can afford is to look at the amount of money you have available for a down payment. The most common type of mortgage is a “conventional mortgage.” Under this type of mortgage, lenders will loan up to 75 percent of the appraised value of the property or purchase price, whichever is lower. The remaining 25 percent or more is the amount you will contribute as a down payment. So, if you plan to buy a home that has an appraised value of $100,000, a lender may loan you 75 per cent or $75,000 on a conventional mortgage when you contribute a down payment of $25,000.

255 Hilliers Road, Qualicum Beach $559,000

2210 Morello Road, Nanoose

MULTIPLY BY FOUR If you plan to borrow funds through a conventional mortgage, simply multiply your down payment funds by four, to get an idea of the highest priced home you could buy. Then you will have to determine whether you have sufficient income to make the payments on your mortgage. Most lenders won’t let you take on debt that you can’t service. That’s why they’ll “qualify” you first, before agreeing to give you a mortgage. HIGH-RATIO MORTGAGE If you don’t have a 25 per cent down payment, you may want to investigate a high-ratio mortgage. This type of mortgage is available for up to 95 per cent of a home’s appraised value or purchase price, whichever is lower, up to a maximum amount set by the government. Since you are borrowing more than 75 per cent, the government insists that the mortgage be insured against default and that you pay the cost of the insurance. That cost can range from one to three per cent of the mortgage amount, and is added to the mortgage principal.

Amazing Value $575,000

LENDERS’ CONSIDERATIONS To determine your eligibility, lenders will look at your monthly housing expenses. These include such items as mortgage payments, property taxes, and utility costs. These shouldn’t exceed approximately 30 percent of your monthly gross family income. This is called your “Gross Debt Service” ratio or GDS. (Some lenders will, in fact, go as high as 35 per cent, depending on a number of variables.) Lenders also use a second calculation in qualifying you for a mortgage. It’s called the “Total Debt Service” ratio or TDS. Generally speaking, no more than 40 percent of your gross family income may be used to cover mortgage payments, property taxes, utility costs, plus other fixed monthly payments. These other fixed costs are your ongoing commitments and can include auto, student or personal loans as well as charge accounts. Lenders will look at both your GDS and TDS amounts in calculating the size of the loan they will grant you for the home you wish to purchase. Once they’ve determined the amount of your monthly income available for mortgage payments, they’ll calculate the mortgage amount you can have. This is based on current interest rates charged by lenders.

TRY LIVING ON YOUR NEW BUDGET FIRST Once you’ve calculated these factors, it’s a good idea to try living for a couple of months as if you were paying a mortgage, along with your other living expenses, to see just how well you manage. After all, it may be feasible on paper, but you may not be comfortable with this amount of your income being allocated towards a mortgage. Better to find out now, before you actually make a purchase. You may readjust your spending habits in other areas for a while. However, if you’re comfortable with this test run, then it’s time to start looking for your new home.

Choosing The REALTOR® Who’s Right For You. If you’re selling or buying a home, you know it’s a process that can’t be rushed. You need time to make the right choices and decisions. After all, selling or buying a home is one of the largest and most important business transactions in which you’re likely to be involved. As a result, you’ll need to work with someone who understands your needs and wants -- someone you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. That’s why it’s important to work with a REALTOR® and to know how to go about choosing the one who’s right for you. By definition, a REALTOR®’s primary role is to bring buyers and sellers together to facilitate a sale. A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate professional who is a member of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board and therefore has access to the Multiple Listing Service ® (MLS®) run by the Board. Both terms, REALTOR® and MLS® are trademarks owned by The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Members of the local Board are also members of CREA and therefore are permitted to use these trademarks. When you work with a REALTOR® you can expect strict adherence to provincial law, as well as to a national Code of Ethics -- ensuring you’ll receive the highest level of service and integrity.

‘Open Houses’ are also a good way to meet REALTORS, especially if you’re interested in purchasing a home. You can also refer to real estate signs in your chosen area. If no name appears, call the phone number on the sign and ask to be referred to a REALTOR® in that firm. Some people mistakenly contact the real estate board for referral to a REALTOR®. A real estate board does not provide a referral service for REALTORS. The Board was created to provide services to its members. Still, the Board will confirm whether a real estate practitioner is a member, and therefore a REALTOR®. THE INTERVIEW When choosing a real estate professional, it’s a good idea to talk to two or three sales representatives from different companies to determine what types of information and experience they and their companies have to offer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re selling your home, ask those you interview about the type of marketing plan they have in mind for your home. Obviously, you’ll want to learn of their reputation and reliability. You may also want to consider asking for references from buyers or sellers with whom the REALTOR® has worked.

Real estate professionals know their markets inside-out because they inspect open houses and research all listings. As a result, they have expertise in assessing what comparable homes are selling for within any given neighbourhood.

Further, since you’ll be working closely with a REALTOR® for weeks or possibly months, it’s a good idea to choose someone who listens to what you say, asks intelligent questions and shows a genuine interest in helping you.

HOW DO I FIND A REALTOR®?

PREPARATORY WORK

There are many ways to go about finding the REALTOR® who’s right for you. First, try consulting friends, relatives and neighbours to see if they can recommend someone. You may also want to try searching through local newspaper real estate advertisements.

Keep in mind that REALTORS cannot work independently of your input. You must be willing to do some preparatory work yourself and be prepared to dedicate a certain amount of time to working with the REALTOR® you have chosen.

The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) represents over 900 REALTORS and administers the Multiple Listing Service® system north of the Malahat to the northern-most reaches of the Island. This article was provided on behalf of VIREB REALTORS for the information and benefit of consumers. For more information, visit the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s website online at www.vireb.com or call 250-390-4212.

So, before you enlist the help of a REALTOR®, you should have a clear set of objectives in mind. Be honest and open in discussing your financial situation and, if you’re buying, carefully review the features you absolutely must have in a home, versus those features you’d merely like to have. LOYALTY IS A MUST It’s also important to remain loyal to the REALTOR® you’ve chosen if he or she has earned your trust. This person will be spending a lot of time and effort on your behalf, but won’t be paid until the transaction is completed. If you’re a buyer, getting involved with several REALTORS can create unnecessary and confusing duplication of effort. In fact, buyers who deal with several REALTORS may miss out on the high level of interest and comprehensive service one is entitled to expect by working closely with a single, competent REALTOR®. COOPERATION REALLY WORKS Remember, although you’ll be working with one REALTOR®, members of the Board cooperate extensively with each other to facilitate showings and sales for the benefit of other clients and customers. So, if you see a ‘For Sale’ sign on a house in which you’re interested, simply ask the REALTOR® you’re working with to arrange an appointment to view the home. This service is, in fact, what the Multiple Listing Service® system is all about -REALTORS cooperating with REALTORS to bring buyers and sellers together to achieve their mutual goals.
