Looking At Buying A Home in Kitchener Waterloo

What Buyers Should Look For:

  • A reputable realtor who knows the market
  • A home that will have perceived value in the future
  • A home that is rare with beneficial features
  • Properties in a strong job market or other factors of stability
  • Location cannot be emphasized enough
  • Comparable properties in the area, including recent solds
  • Homes that conform together as they tend to hold their value better
  • Neighborhoods where homes are cared for and show curb appeal
  • Motivated sellers!

Other Home Buying Tips:

  • Don’t purchase the most expensive home in the neighbourhood
    (Unless you love it and don’t care)
  • Don’t compare resale to new, land to buildings, residential to commercial
  • Think in terms of developing a property to produce the greatest returns based on its highest use
  • Consider buying the smallest, least expensive in the area
  • Look for value, even by substituting and coming up with solutions
  • Be aware of the supply and demand factors in the marketplace to know your best position
  • Have enough capital for closing, down payments, etc.
