HOME SWEET HOME
Buying a home can sometimes be both exciting and overwhelming. Comox Valley Homes Team is here to guide you every step of the way.
Step 1: Determine What You Can Afford
When purchasing a home, consider both one-time costs and ongoing monthly expenses. The down payment is the largest one-time cost, typically ranging from 5-25% of the total property price. For a purchase price of $500,000 or less, the minimum down payment is 5%, while a purchase price over that amount requires a 5% down payment on the first $500,000 and 10% down on the remaining portion. Additional one-time expenses may also arise.
Step 2: Get A Pre-Approved Mortgage
A pre-approved mortgage saves you time by narrowing your property search to viable options, and protects against interest rate increases. To confirm financing for your dream home, provide a copy of the real estate listing, offer to purchase or building contract, in addition to documents verifying employment, income, and previous year's tax assessments.
Step 3: Choose a Real Estate Agent
