Things to Consider When Buying Toronto Real Estate:
Buying Toronto real estate can be a frustrating experience for buyers in today’s market. Each buyer has different motivations when searching for a property to purchase. You may be a first time buyer, upgrading to a larger home, relocating for business or interested in finding a vacation property. Regardless of your search criteria, Braden can help you find the right property and direct you to suitable resources and professionals.
Finding the right real estate agent can be a challenging endeavor. It is important that you feel comfortable and confident with your agent, and that your agent listens to your needs and expectations and has a true understanding of the goals you are trying to achieve. It is always best to ask a prospective agent to explain their approach of dealing with the buying process. Make sure to confirm that their methods, work ethic and knowledge align with your expectations and that they will continuously update you throughout the buying process.
Take the time to plan ahead by researching different mortgage lenders and mortgage options and obtain a pre-approval from your lender of choice. Mortgage pre-approval will assist with making the property buying process less stressful and put you in a better negotiating position when you find the right property. If you need assistance with choosing the right lending institution for you, ask your real estate agent for some recommendations.
In order to be in the best position for negotiating and securing the property of your choice, it is beneficial for you to have your deposit prepared and available prior to making an offer and that the funds be available for conversion to a certified cheque or bank draft. You can expect to provide a deposit of at least 5% of the offer price. The deposit can be submitted with the offer or within 24 hours after acceptance.
In addition to your deposit, you will need access to additional funds to cover your closing costs, which can include legal fees and disbursements, land transfer tax (municipal & provincial) and moving expenses.
