The Right Neighbourhood
Location is one of the single most important factors. It will help to narrow your search and focus on the homes that will suit you and your family’s needs.
There are many factors in choosing the right neighbourhood or community. Here is a list of six questions that will help you narrow it down to the area that is best for you!
- How far is it to schools, work, entertainment, extracurricular, grocery? Is it walking distance or car dependant?
- Is it close enough that I can reduce the use of my car, thereby saving money on gas and maintenance?
- What will my mortgage, heat, and taxes be per month, in this area?
- Is the size of the home suitable? Are there enough bed and bathrooms?
- Is the land size suitable?
To determine, more closely, what you can afford per month, you will need the following information:
- Annual income
- Monthly debt payments
- Annual property tax
- Condo fee / Land rental
- Monthly heating costs
Follow this link and you can use the above listed information to determine an approximate monthly mortgage payment. http://www.howrealtorshelp.ca/mortgage-calculator.php
This amount will be in addition to your down payment and will be payable to your lawyer who will distribute the funds accordingly. When budgeting, it is a good idea to expect 1%-4% of the purchase price will be needed for closing costs.
