Brought to you by Tim Jones, Associate Broker, Realtor. Re/Max Signature Properties www.TimJonesRealEstate.com

 

As your agent, I will use my 25+ years of business and real estate experience
to help you in the home buying process.

 

Considerations when buying a home:

 

  • Consider life events, budgets - current and future expenses, work and social commute costs and time, Short/medium/and long term planning, schools, lifestyle and activities where you live, do you like to entertain and how does the home and parking work for that, pets, potential for a suite and mortgage helper, home office, etc
  • Look at the total cost of ownership and I will offer guidance, if you wish, to help you in determining your budget for buying and maintaining a home
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage. I can give you some excellent contacts in this regard. It is important to discuss mortgage costs, legal costs, closing costs, moving costs, Life insurance and home insurance, etc
  • Location, Location, Location. How will your potential home appreciate over time?
  • Renovation ideas. Cost approximation etc. I can help with what is a good idea and not a good idea for helping increase value and enjoyment in a property and home. I have a strong knowledge and experience in building and renovating.
  • Sometimes people get lucky and it is the first home they look at that is the right one, other times it takes looking at 50+ properties. My goal is to find you that right home and property regardless of how many places we need to look at.
  • It is important you get the information you need to make an educated decision. I will provide you with local area knowledge, information on various neighbourhoods, statistics, demographics, facilities etc. We will compare properties to help you understand market values.
  • With years of experience in the real estate business, I can help with home inspector recommendations, builder recommendations, various trade workers contact info, Lawyer recommendations, etc..
