Falling in love with a home at first sight is a beautiful experience, but it’s important to make sure it’s the right home for you. Becoming emotionally invested too soon often leads to buyer’s remorse; this is exactly why it’s important to make sure that you’re getting the right house. Did you know that the average Canadian home buyer will look at a dozen homes in the first 2 months before they find the right one? You need to be able to look at different Oakville homes for sale before you settle on the right one.
Is it Really the One?
Figuring out if the home is the right one is all about looking at many different homes to see what each one features. Maybe on has a special light fixture that reminds you of a home you had as a child; but if you keep looking you may be able to find the same fixtures in a home very similar for thousands of dollars less. It’s important that you consider the cost of putting in special features that you want versus the asking price of the Oakville real estate to make sure your emotional investment doesn't push your financial investment over the edge.
Understand the Resale Value
Understanding the resale value of a piece of Oakville real estate means you know how much you should pay for it and how much people will pay you down the road. You’ll want to make sure that you don’t get the best house on the block; this home will appreciate much slower than the surrounding homes and will leave you with a house that you can’t get much money for. It’s better to get a home that matches the comparable homes around it (when you’re in a luxury neighbourhood this isn’t hard!) so you can bring up the resale value over time.
You Love the Neighbourhood
You love this neighbourhood, but do you love the house? Is it what you want, or will you always wonder what may have been if you bought the house down the street?

Why make mistakes when they can be easily avoided?
Are Things as They Seem?
Beautiful on the outside… but ugly on the inside; it’s easy to find a home that just doesn’t stack up to what you want it to be. We’ll help you find great homes and when you look at many different homes you’ll understand your options. If a seller has a part of the house locked off, don’t buy that house. We’ll help you make sure you don't end up with a home you hate.
