Everyone in real estate always says it’s the right time to buy a home, but now really is the time to buy! With interest rates at lows not seen for decades, getting a home and paying it off is easier before. With close proximity to Toronto and its great diversity, North or South Oakville real estate is one of the best choices you can make. Here we’re going to go over why it’s time to buy a home and why you should work with us. Let’s get started!
Should You Buy a Home?
If you’re not sure if you need to buy a home, that’s okay! More and more Canadians are buying homes each day, but home ownership isn’t right for everyone. There is the upkeep and maintenance issues people deal with, but they also build a nest egg for the future. With each mortgage payment homeowners come one step closer to financial freedom. The same just can’t be said for people who are renting their homes. If you want to save for the future, have more privacy and more freedom, home ownership is the answer.
What Kinds of Homes are Available in Oakville?
Almost every type of Oakville real estate is available! From beautiful detached single and multifamily homes with lawns and garages to carefree condos, you’ll find them all here. It’s important to know what kind of home is right for you; just because it looks like something you’ll find in Architectual Digest doesn’t mean it’ll be pair well with your lifestyle! If you’re not sure what kind of home would suit you best, ask yourself the following questions:
- What Lifestyle Do You Want?
- How Much Maintenance Are You Willing to Tolerate and Afford?
- Are You Upsizing or Downsizing Your Space?
Lifestyle plays a large factor when buying a home. If you need an urban area where you can walk to a market with organic vegetables you’re not going to want to move to a gated community with rolling hills and horses. If you need amenities like a cleaning lady and a swimming pool but don’t want to deal with maintenance, you may want to think about condos. From cute little bungalows to the luxury dream homes, Oakville has it all.
