When buying Oakville luxury homes, you need to know that you’re getting the right home at the right price. There are so many things that can factor into the decision like lengthy escrows, home owners associations, and everything else that comes with buying a home. You need an Oakville real estate agent that knows the market and we can help! We know the best neighbourhoods and the steps you’ll need to take to find your dream home.
Get Pre-Approved Before House Hunting
Before you start house hunting, you need to get pre-approved for financing. This means you’ll want to go to your bank or a mortgage broker to see who qualifies you for a loan and how much your monthly fee will be (this is commonly referred to as a “good faith estimate”) so you know what your range is and what to expect. Many sellers will ask to see this pre-approval letter before entering negotiations and some won’t even schedule the viewing without it. It’s always a good idea to have this ahead of time!
What Kind of Home Suites You?
There are many types of homes on the market, but you need to think about what kind of lifestyle you’d enjoy. If you want to be near nightlife and amenities, you might want to forego viewing country estates. On the flipside if you’re looking to get away from it all you may not be too concerned about Go Train access or walkability. Ask to look at home owner’s association rules; are there restrictions in the development against installing solar panels, installing a reflecting pool or landscaping? Think about all the things you want in luxury real estate that are musts and what you can be flexible with. When you know what you want, we’ll be able to help you choose the right home.
You Need an Oakville Real Estate Agent
And we’re not just saying that so you’ll go with us either; many sellers don’t list their property publicly to protect their privacy and property. You need us!
