First Time Home Buyer Questions?
I will be looking to purchase a home hopefully sometime this year (anywhere between Burlington to Brampton) and have a few questions. Hopefully you guys can provide some insight.
1. How do I choose a realtor? I called a realtor last weekend and he took me around to 6 different places that same day in Milton. He was great and answered a lot of my questions. Do I just stick with him as my realtor now or should I look around for others? Are commissions the same for all realtors?
2. Does it matter who I get a pre-approval from? The realtor sent me contact info on someone he recommends. Should I just go with that?
3. So far I have just done an online mortgage calculator on how much I can afford. Are these accurate?
4. What are some important questions to ask and things to look at when viewing a home? When I was viewing homes last weekend, I felt like I had no idea on what to look for or ask. I was just looking at the place to see the size, layout, number of rooms, etc.
If anyone has information on a good step-by-step process for someone like me, please let me know.
