Make Sure You’re Ready to Buy

If you’re thinking of buying a home, you’ve come to the right place. This web site can turn you into a house-hunting master. But before we jump right in, you have to make sure three things are ready. You, your bank account and the real estate market.

Are you ready? Be sure.

Few joys can match the pride of owning the roof over your head, but you will have to make some sacrifices. There’s the obvious financial responsibility, but your home will also require constant care. That’s what real pride of ownership is all about.

Is your bank account ready? Check it twice.

Your first home will be the biggest financial obligation you’ve ever faced. You should already be an experienced saver and good at managing debt like student loans or credit cards. Ideally, you’ve also saved up some money for a nice down payment. Talk to your financial institution about the Home Buyers Plan too. Our Next Step will give you a crystal clear picture about how much you can afford.

Is now a good time to buy? Here’s the hottest market tip you’ll ever get.

Markets go up, markets go down and even the smartest experts can’t accurately predict when a market will peak or bottom out. The good news is if you’re buying a home as a long-term investment (and for long-term enjoyment), you’re protected from short-term changes in the market. Over time, real estate has almost always increased in value.

All you have to do is pick a home that meets the needs of you and your family. Then you’ll enjoy living in your investment as it grows in value. A home is one of the best financial decisions you can make and it’s tough to live in a stock portfolio!
