Guide to Purchasing your home Purchasing a home or even thinking of buying a home is an exciting adventure. You will be joining the ranks of hundreds of families who realize that home ownership offers a number of benefits including building equity, saving for the future and establishing a home your family can call their own. Your hard-earned dollars contribute to your mortgage, not a landlord's and over time your home will increase in value and the equity you earn is ultimately yours! Before you start shopping for your home, give some thought to your lifestyle, the features you need and want, affordability, and the neighbourhoods you prefer. Determining the features that are most important to you will bring you closer to finding your perfect home. Prior to shopping for a home, it is usually recommended to look into getting a pre-approval on a mortgage. As most people require a mortgage to purchase a home, Choosing a home is both an emotional and a financial decision for your future. By making the most out of your home viewing experience, you can learn how you can avoid costly errors that could lead to future problems. Begin Testing the Market

Right here on www.remax-elite.com.jm, you can find listings that meet your criteria as well as neighbourhood data. Identify

properties that seem to be fit for you, take an afternoon and go on a driving tour. See what's available in your price range and explore neighbourhoods. With Your Agent, Begin Seriously Looking at Homes Your agent can add to the list of homes you've already identified – including ones that have just come on the market. Look at homes with a critical eye – does the floor plan work for you, is the property in good condition, would it be right for your lifestyle? In short, can you imagine yourself and your family living there? Take notes at each home you visit. What do you like and not like? Narrow down your choices; re-visit homes in which you're interested. See them at different times of the day.

• You'll be asked to submit an earnest money deposit of 15% of the purchase price. • Begin making moving arrangements (select a mover, obtain change-of-address cards, inform friends and relatives). • Have the property professionally inspected. • If necessary, request repairs. • Obtain homeowner's insurance. • Contact utilities (phone, water, power, etc) • A few days before closing, stage a walk-through. • Obtain a manager’s cheque for the down payment and closing costs. At Closing: • •

Make an Offer When you've identified the home you want to buy, be prepared to help your agent prepare a written offer quickly. Your agent will be familiar with market values and will help you arrive at a price that gives your offer the best chance of being accepted.

Make sure the terms and conditions of the loan statement are correct. Carefully read everything before you sign.

The costs of purchasing a property include: •

• At this stage, try not to become emotionally attached to a home. Your offer may not be accepted for any number of reasons. Have backup homes in mind. Be prepared to negotiate through your agent with the sellers.

Negril, Westmoreland US$850,000

Once Your Offer Is Accepted:

Government stamp duty (3% of the purchase price), which is shared equally between seller and buyer. Attorneys fees (approximately 2-3% of purchase price or as negotiated)

It is highly recommended that you contact an Attorney before or once an offer is accepted. ENJOY YOUR NEW HOME!

Mary's Bay is one of Negril's newest and most exciting venues on the West End. Located on the sea, this property is poised to take advantage of the breath taking view of the famous seven mile beach. This property is unique, in that it houses the only privately owned docking facility with gas station, allowing for fuelling of boats. The property is home to a vibrant restaurant and bar, a dive shop with pool, an internet cafe and an upper floor 3 bedroom apartment. The possibilities are endless, so call for additional information today. Anyika Vassall (876) 896-8656 avassall@remax.net
