Secrets and Steps to HomeBuying Success

Everyone wants to have a successful homebuying journey, but not everyone is aware of all the steps to take to make sure this happens. At TriUrban, we’re dedicated to making sure everyone who works with us knows all the steps and secrets to making a successful home purchase.

How to Make Sure your Next Home Purchase is Successful

Here are our best tips and steps to making sure that your home purchase is a successful one: 

Have the Right People on your Side

The first, and maybe most important step, to ensuring you buy the right home for you, in the right location, at the right time, is having the right team on your side. When you trust our real estate experts and professionals to help you through your homebuying journey, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best and most qualified guidance. 

Getting the right people on your side means more than just getting advice. When you work with a real estate firm like TriUrban, you get plenty of additional services that you wouldn’t get, or would have to seek independently, if you were doing it by yourself.

Determine what you can Really Afford

Of course, being able to afford the house you want is an important step to making sure you make a successful home purchase. But, many homebuyers make the mistake of not properly calculating what they can really afford. 

Having a team of professionals on your side helps you do this, but you should make sure to determine exactly what you can afford (taking into account all fees, payments, bills etc.) before you start looking for houses.

Buy New Construction

Really. We know a lot of homebuyers, particularly first-time homebuyers, can be wary of buying a new construction home because they think it’ll be more expensive than buying used. The truth is, this isn’t the truth. Chances are, you can get a great new construction home with the budget you have.

Plus, brand new houses often are located in the best neighbourhoods (in our case, that’s in the Edmonton area) with the newest schools and amenities. Best of all, when you buy a new home, you get a new home warranty and the assurance that you won’t have to do repairs or remodels right after moving in.

Do Your Research

It seems obvious, but one of the secrets to successful homebuying that many people forget is do extensive research. That means looking into every possible aspect of your new home.

Examine potential home models and figure out if the features and plan work for you. It’s important to make sure that the layout is going to work for your family now and in the future. Look into the neighbourhood and communities you are considering buying in. Don’t just look at location; make sure to research schools, amenities, public transportation, recreational activities, and more. In addition, you should also research future development plans for potential neighbourhoods because this can have a major affect on your future living at that location.

Picking the Right Team to Make Your Homebuying Journey Successful

The most important step you’ll take when you buy your next home is choosing the right group of professionals to help you along the way. At TriUrban, we have a team with extensive experience in buying and selling real estate, home building, home design, mortgages, investing, and more.

We have done the research, and we know that we have homes, which are the right models, in the right neighbourhoods, for practically everyone.
