A Buyer’s Frequently Asked Questions
Interested in the buying process? Everyone has questions to start – before we sit down to chat, let’s talk about some of the most common questions that we typically get from buyers looking to start their next purchase.
How do we help investors?
Our long-standing relationships with investors have provided us with unmatched industry expertise and knowledge. We can explore the options, while vetting potential candidates, as well as considering any possible exit strategies. We’ll help you find the right property, analyze the trends, inspect building quality, and everything else you need to make lucrative investment choices in the GTA.
What kind of closing costs should I expect?
Closing costs are typical whenever purchasing a home in the Greater Toronto Area. They can cost between 1.5 and 2.5% of the purchase price, and are in addition to the down payment. They may generally include: closing adjustments, interest adjustment, legal fees, land transfer tax, title insurance fee, home inspection fee, fire insurance, additional expenses, application fees, sales taxes, moving expenses, and more. Working with a real estate professional can help walk you through these so you have a full and complete understanding.
What are the benefits of purchasing a resale home?
Purchasing a resale home in Brampton, Caledon, Mississauga or Toronto is often a better alternative to buying a new home from a builder. While the wait time for moving into a new home can be as much as 2 years, the move-in time for a resale home is normally between 30 to 90 days. Resale homes have the advantage of being in established neighbourhoods. Schools have been built, amenities are in place, and more. Another advantage to purchasing a resale home is that the price is almost always negotiable. This is rarely the case when purchasing from builders, whose prices are usually firm.
Should I buy or continue renting a property?
Everyone needs a place to live. In most cases, you maintain that place by paying rent to a landlord, or paying a mortgage to the bank. Buying a home makes financial sense if you are going to live in it for at least three, four, or preferably five years. Real Estate has always been considered a long-term investment. When considering buying versus renting, the one question you need to ask yourself is, Do I really want to pay RENT for the rest of my life?
