Real estate agents: a great solution for home buyers Research, visits, negotiations and paperwork: buying a property can be complex, especially for first-time buyers. To avoid making mistakes, you’re much better off using the services of a real estate agent who will protect your interests. After all, this is a major investment you’re about to make. Doing business with real estate agents has many advantages. They handle all legal aspects of the complex real estate transaction and accompany 20

you through each step of the buying process. In addition to receiving expert advice, you will be able to take advantage of their wide network of contacts in order to find the other professionals whose services you need, such as a building inspector, a notary or lawyer or a mortgage broker. It also makes finding the perfect home easier. Realtors have access to numerous tools for finding the property that best meets your needs. They ensure that you have

all the documents necessary to evaluate the property, including the complete listing, the property survey or certificate of location and tax bill. Their neutral perspective could also be valuable when you fall in love with a property that isn’t really what you’re looking for. They’ll help you think twice before you make a decision. Because of their experience and market knowledge, real estate agents can help buyers determine the right price to offer for the property they are interested in. Depending on the state you live in, you may also be protected by

law if you use the services of an agent. In short, working with a real estate agent to buy a property is a smart move. So why deprive yourself?

will be able to estimate an acceptable debt level. This should not exceed 40 percent of your gross revenue, including all your existing debts.

Find out everything you can on the subject of mortgages and home-buying. For example, you should know that having a mortgage doesn’t always cost less than renting because a home owner must take into account both recurring and one-time expenses, such as municipal and school taxes, maintenance costs, property transfer duties, and legal costs.

DOWN PAYMENT In the past it was possible to borrow for a down payment, with a credit card, for example. This is no longer possible. That means you need to have accumulated some savings before getting into this type of acquisition. If you have an RRSP, it is possible to use that for your down payment through the federal government’s Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP).

If you have done your homework and decided to become a home owner, the next step is to consult a representative at your financial institution. Once you are clear about your assets and liabilities, you

Obviously it is to your advantage to work with a real estate agent who is subject to real estate law. He or she works for you and will be able to answer any of your questions concerning your purchase.
