Are you wondering where to start when purchasing a home in Northumberland, Quinte West or Durham Region?

Where do you start?  

Buying a home is more than just a financial investment.  It is a personal investment as well.  This is why it is so important to know what you are getting into when purchasing in Brighton, Ontario (and area!)

What can you afford?
What location are you considering?
What size of home or property are you looking for?
Do you have other considerations that must be addressed when purchasing your next or first home?

AFFORDABILITY:
~ is the house within your price range?  Have you been pre-approved?
~ How much are the property taxes of the house?
~ What kind of heating and cooling systems are in the house?  Do you know what the average costs are to run these bills?
~ Is your next home on a sewer or septic?  Are there municipal services?  Are there costs to add new services?
~ Are you planning to renovate any part of this next home?  Is it in the budget?

LOCATION:  
~ Is this home purchase close to transportation?  Can you get to the 401 quickly if needed?
~ Are you looking for a rural property or a home more within a town or a city?
~ Do you have enough parking? Is there room for guests to come and visit?
~ Are you close to the hospital?  Is there a doctor in the area?  What about the location of the nearest fire hydrant or fire department?
~ Are you on a flood plain?
~ Are there any environmental concerns that are associated with the property?  

SIZE:
~What size of home are you looking for?  Is there room for improvement?
~ Are you allowed to expand?  How easy is it to get permits in the area?
~ How close is your nearest neighbour?
~ Will your existing furniture fit in this house?  (You should bring a measuring tape with you!)

OTHER THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:
~ Is the home open concept?  Do you like the layout?
~ Do you have pets?  Do you need a fence?
~ Is the property size manageable for you to upkeep?
~ Is it a suitable property for the family?  Does someone have difficulty with stairs?  Do you need a bigger garage?

CAN YOU SEE YOURSELF LIVING THERE?
~ Have you seen the way the neighbours keep up their property?
~ Will you fit in?
