If high interest rate credit cards and loan debt are keeping you from getting ahead, as a home owner you can refinance your existing mortgage and use the equity in your home to pay off that debt. With the low mortgage rates and rising property values it is a great time to consolidate your debt and even decrease your monthly payments.

Why get Pre-Qualified?

It is a good idea to get pre-qualified when you decide to purchase a new home because being pre-qualified will help you to:

  • Save time by only looking at homes within your price range
  • Save money by locking you into an interest rate for up to 120 days. By locking your interest rate you are protecting yourself from rate increases that can occur after you write up an offer, but before you close on the purchase.
  • Deal with the seller more effectively because they know you are a qualified buyer. The seller is often more willing to negotiate or accept a lower purchase offer if he or she knows you are pre-qualified and able to purchase.

Check out the Market before House Shopping

Before you begin house shopping, check out the market and familiarize yourself with what is available.

Being pre-approved will tell you how much you can afford, so take a look at the real estate listings in the paper or through other real estate publications. By doing this, you will have a good idea of what is available in your price range and what you can expect to view when you start home shopping.

Also, taking a drive in a desirable neighborhood is a good idea as you could stumble upon an open house giving you a better idea of what you want in your new home.

Why do it Alone?

Investing in a new home is a big decision, so as a first-time home buyer, why do it alone?

Let our professionals guide you through the home buying process. We can advise you on all the legalities, the home inspection and the property appraisal. We will also work to find you the best interest rate and mortgage option that suits your financial situation.

Buying your first home can be overwhelming because of the wide variety of property available. It is important to get pre-approved for a mortgage because this will help you narrow your property search.

Our professionals will help get you pre-approved and be able to tell you exactly what you can afford, what your interest rate will be, and the amount of your monthly repayment.

Choosing the Right Type of Home

After you have decided that home ownership is right for you, it is important to fully understand which type of home will best suit your needs.

Not all individuals or families belong in a three bedroom, split-level house in the suburbs. Some might prefer condo or town home living for added convenience, so it is important to assess your needs fully before deciding on the type of property to purchase.

Each type of housing will have pros and cons, so weigh them all carefully and make an informed decision. If you are finding the choices overwhelming, our professional mortgage brokers at Alberta Equity Mortgages can offer advice about the different kinds of housing available and steer you in the right direction.
