First-Time Barrie Home Buyers

If you are a first-time Barrie home buyer, this list may help you organize your first-time home buying experience. 

Below are some general ideas and guidelines for buying a first home.

  • First, obtain a Mortgage Pre-approval. This would involve meeting with a mortgage broker or banker to discover how much you can afford to pay for a home.
  • Next, make a list of needs & wants for your first home. The first list should be things you must have in a home. Items such as number of bedrooms or bathrooms would fit on this list. The second list are those thing that you would like to be in the home. These items could include a white kitchen or a pool.
  • Make sure in your first home search, to have a professional real estate agent with you that represents your interests. Real estate agents that list a home for sale represent the seller, not the buyer. Make sure and have someone at your side to represent your interests. 
  • Lastly, try and stay organized and centered on the end goal. When buying a home, the details can get confusing. Keep lists and try and keep your thoughts and ideas together. 

Buying that first home can be overwhelming, which is why you should contact the professionals at the Peggy Hill team to assist you in this important decision.
