FIVE TIPS FOR BUYERS

1. Get your credit in shape – If you plan to finance your home purchase, check your credit history – especially if you’re a first time buyer!

2. Get pre-approved for a mortgage – Early in your search, meet with you Lender to get pre-approved to give you a better picture of what you can afford and the financing options available (Ask me for a list of amazing Guelph professionals)

3. Establish your budget – Whatever you’re financing your purchase or paying cash, it helps to establish a budget.

4. Make a List – Buying a home is a process of elimination NOT a process of selection.  Make a list of your ideal home’s must haves and deal breakers.  This will help you to narrow your search so that you can find a home that fits your current and future needs.

5. Think about resale –While you may purchase your home as a long-term investment, keep in mind that you may need to sell it one day.  Consider the homes resale value when you’re looking at properties.

FIVE TIPS FOR SELLERSfirst-home-buyers

1.Clear the Clutter –Before you put your home on the market, clear the clutter that’s accumulated over the years.  Tackle one room at a time and divide your items into 3 piles:  Keep, donate, toss

2. Get Packing – Although you don’t want to pack up all of your belongings, it helps to start boxing up the items that you want to keep but won’t use for a wile, such as out of season clothing or sporting equipment.

3. Research the local market – Knowing how much the homes in your local neighbourhood are selling for and how long they stayed on the market can help you guage your home’s value and estimate a time frame for the sale.

4. Repair and improve – Boost your home’s curb appeal by doing minor repairs and improvements inside the home and out.  Tackle any necessary repairs, paint your walls a neutral colour and replace light fixtures or appliances that are damaged or out of date.  And don’t forget to clean!

5. Be realistic – While it’s good to get a feel for the local market, be realistic about the selling process.  Having realistic expectations for your home sale will help to relieve some of the stress of selling.
