What to consider
before you purchase.


Whether it’s online, with friends or at work- start researching about different neighborhoods and housing prices that are suitable for your budget and lifestyle. Do you prefer a metropolitan or suburban area? Some keys things to look for are additional expenses like insurance, property, taxes and repairs, demographics, and your finances. Are your savings congruent with the potential down payment?​​

Mortgage Approval

​Start working on getting your mortgage approval six months before closing. Consider your credit score, proof of income and assets. Securing your mortgage approval in advance will give you more time to shop around for the best rates and terms. ​

Sales Consultation

Choose your home builder and book an appointment to discuss your ideal home, lot size, finishes, deposit structure and construction timeline. This is the best opportunity for you to understand the interior and exterior built of your home and how you can customize it to suit your family lifestyle.

Next Steps
