All across Canada and especially in Ontario single women homebuyers are driving the housing market… but why? With more and more women retiring in the Baby Boomer generation and younger women putting off starting a family until they’re older (if at all), it’s led to a unique situation! Single women are outpacing single men AND families at the moment for buying Oakville real estate and so can you. Here we’re going to go over why you need to work with us as your Oakville luxury realtor, how to find the home that best works for you and why you should buy a home. Let’s get started!
Know What You Want
Most people fall into the trap of looking at a bunch of homes and then trying to decide what they want in a home. It has to be the other way around, and you need to know what kind of budget you’re working with. Getting pre-approved for financing before you start shopping for Oakville luxury real estate (or real estate in general) will help you establish a price point. Then you can make a list of features that you want in your next home, how long you’re willing to wait for it (brand new custom home or a resale homes will have different wait times) and how much you’re willing to spend.
Know What You Need
Knowing exactly what you have to have versus what you’d like to have will help you have the best home buying experience. Being pragmatic and finding that happy medium is going to give you the home you want, the home you need, and help prevent any buyer’s remorse that you may encounter from a home that just doesn’t cut it. If you want to be able to get the home that you want and deserve, it’s time to really narrow down what you have to have in your next home. Don’t wait until it’s too late and you’ve already put your bid in, know before you make the big leap.
Do Your Research
You’re going to want to do more than just look at a neighbourhood – you’re going to want to also walk around and get a feel for the place. Buying a home isn’t just about buying four walls, windows and a door! It’s about the community, the people, the spirit of the place. If you want to know that this is going to be the one that’s right for you, you need to plan ahead. Know that you’re getting what’s best for you before you have to worry about making a mistake. A little research and planning will always go a long way.
