Reasons for Buying a Home
The first step in deciding to buy a home is asking yourself why you want to move. To stop paying rent? To create equity? To have your first home? To start a family? To host for family or friends? To upgrade? Next, decide what kind of place you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific, and think carefully. Decide between the "wants" from the "needs."
It's about finding the perfect home for your unique tastes, going from the general to the specific. Consider what area of Calgary; (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and established or new and upcoming; a particular school zone; nearby commodities; and other community services such as bus or train, day care centers, library's, stopping, nightlife). Think about key factors like how long it will take to get to work.
Consider home styles. How many rooms do you need? Are you OK with a one-story living space, or are more levels needed? Are you buying this home for the rest of your life, or are you planning on flipping it for a profit? One day, you or your kids may want to sell.
