Things To Look For When Buying A House | Homes by Jalaj Arora

Know What To Expect When Buying A House

Buying a home can be a confusing and long process, but if you keep certain things in mind, it won’t be such a stressful ordeal.

At Homes by Jalaj Arora, we’ve helped many clients find a home that suits all their wants and needs.

Here are a few things to look for when buying a house:

  • Getting prepared with your financing is important. In addition to initial deposit with the offer, expect to put down more money toward the final down payment. Not having put money aside for closing costs (i.e., land transfer tax, lawyer fee, home inspection fee, etc.) and the fluctuating housing market can mean the difference between closing on a house or saying goodbye to it.
  • Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork (and lots of patience). Buying a home involves a lot of paperwork and requires your signatures more often than you would like. Keep all your important documents (i.e., pay stubs, T4s, Notice of Assessment from CRA, etc.) and paperwork prepared by your REALTOR® handy throughout the buying process.
  • Homes sell every day. Having an open mind in regards to homes and neighbourhoods is key to avoid being let down time and again.
