Buying a home can be stressful. There are a lot of steps to follow before putting your hands on the keys. It’s a good idea to know what to expect, and who can help.
Deciding to buy
Want to be an owner? Ask yourself some basic questions. What’s your budget? What kind of home do you want? How do you protect yourself during the purchase process?
Making an offer
A signed offer to purchase is a commitment. It’s hard to cancel. Make sure it has all the protections you need.
Moving involves more that filling boxes. You need to do an address change, advise the other parent if you are separated and have children under 18, assign or sublet your lease if you’re a tenant, and cancel memberships or subscriptions for services in your neighbourhood.
