Thinking of Buying a home or property for sale in SW or SE Calgary?
Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home in the SW or SE area of Calgary, you are faced with a multitude of decisions!
I will make the process of purchasing a Calgary home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and potentially less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that real estate sellers in Calgary perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess Calgary properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase. I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, and I know SE and SW neighbourhood values well, so I can help you to determine which Calgary properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home – To stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you’d like and where you would like to be in the area of Calgary. I am very knowledgeable when it comes to homes for sale in the SE and SW areas of the city of Calgary. Be specific. Separate the “must haves” from the “want to haves.”
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighbourhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side of Calgary ); neighbourhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular Calgary school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). If applicable ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a Calgary area mortgage company if you require a mortgage. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
