The First Step....Let's understand why you want to own your home and where you want to live. Then let's talk about your lifestyle...do you want access to hiking trails, shopping, transit, schools, University or College? Do you want a carefree, low maintenance home style, or do you want space and privacy? How much can you afford?
Begin the list with items you absolutely need like adequate room, garage space and number of bedrooms. How much space do you really need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Basic needs should be considered first. After these have been established, you can consider additional features if you can manage these benefits financially. With such a list in your hands, you're less likely to be caught up in the excitement of the pursuit. You'll have a good idea of what you want, the features within your price range, and whether or not you can afford those additional items.

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-ApprovalOnce you've narrowed down your list, you're ready to take the next step in the purchasing process: getting an idea of what you can afford. When you're pre-approved, this means that a lender has reviewed your credit history, verified your assets and employment, and has approved your loan before you've found a Vancouver home to purchase.
If you do not currently have a relationship with a bank or mortgage broker, let me introduce you to several providers I have worked with in the past and have provided great service to some of my clients.
Pre-approval gives you substantial leverage: sellers immediately see you as a serious buyer. Not only will you know the exact price range you can afford, but you'll also be able to negotiate a better deal and move more quickly when you see a Vancouver house you like.
Depending upon market conditions you, as a Buyer, will have more negotiating leverage if you have already been "approved" for the size of mortgage require to acquire a property. Banks and financial institutions have developed many programs catered specifically to home buyers. Once you review your needs and objectives with a lending officer, you'll be one step closer to purchasing your home in Vancouver.
Contact me and I'll be happy to refer you to a Vancouver mortgage professional with an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.
