Your First Step

Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Or looking for an investment property? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."

Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

Things to Consider Before Choosing a Home

Home Features

There are several factors that need to be taken into consideration when it comes to choosing a home that is suited to your needs or that of your family’s such as:

  • Space – The need for more space is one of the reasons why Canadians opt for a home of their own. Spatial concerns include how many bedrooms and bathrooms you require or if extra space is needed for cars, home offices, recreation, storage, hobbies, or a considerable backyard for pets.
  • Suitability – This applies to families with children, the elderly, or members with special needs.
  • Personal preferences – Options for a new home can be narrowed if your preference for architectural details such as fireplace, swimming pool, or balcony are taken into account. This can also include household apparatus like air conditioning.


When it comes to considering houses for sale, most say that it’s all about location, location, location. That is why our RE/MAX sales associates are more than equipped to provide information on:

  • Future plans or development in the neighborhood that will supply competition upon resale such as new housing or highway construction
  • Neighborhood demographics
  • State of economic climate or potential improvement due to government and commercial investments
  • Access to schools, workplace, public transportation, hospitals, places of worship, recreation, shops, and cultural centers
  • Issues on crime and safety
  • Noise level and privacy
