There’s never been a better time for buying Oakville real estate. Low interest rate mortgages help you finance beautiful luxury homes in some of Oakville’s finest neighbourhoods. But without the right Oakville real estate agent on your side, you may not find the home you want! Here we’re going to go over everything you need to know about buying real estate and how you’ll know if it’s the right time for you to buy. Let’s get started!

Why Are Low Interest Rates Important?

Low interest rates means that each payment you make to your mortgage actually goes towards the loan amount and not interest. You’ll need to get approved for financing before you start house hunting; if you can get pre-approved before you start you can bring your letter to us and we’ll have a better idea of what you’re looking for. Pre-approval letters also come in handy when a seller wants to avoid a long escrow or know that a buyer is serious about buying the property.

Why Not Wait?

Interest rates will eventually go up and you may miss out on the chance to buy “the one” dream home you’ve always wanted! Inventories are stable right now, meaning that there are many different homes on the market; there aren’t so few that prices are high and not so many that people are desperate to sell. It’s a good time to buy all around, and a great time to find that dream home you’ve always wanted.

Why Oakville?

If you’re looking for a great home in the Greater Toronto Area, you could find worse places to live than Oakville! All kidding aside, it was recently voted the safest place to live in Ontario, has a wide variety of activities, neighbourhoods and diversity that makes it a great place to live for just about everyone. From the posh neighbourhood of Oakdale to urban and modern downtown, there’s always going to be a home that will suit your needs.

Another great thing about Oakville are the schools; if you want great schools you’ll find them here! Each neighbourhood has its own amenities; some are urban and walkable, focusing on sustainability. Others with their rolling ranches and sprawling estates give people a place to get away from it all. Each has its own charm, and with the right real estate agent on your side (us!) we’ll help you get where you need to be.

Take Advantage of the Housing Boom

If you want to find a beautiful luxury home to call your home, it’s time to take advantage of the housing boom. Lenders are competing to provide financing and there are many homes for sale. Now’s the time to buy, but you’ll want to make sure that you go about it in the right way. Let us help you find the right neighbourhood and home for your needs! We’ll help you understand the market and if the one you want is the right one.
