5 Tips for Buyers

Traditionally, spring has been the time that many buyers and sellers become motivated to enter the real estate market. The warm weather and longer days encourage potential buyers to get out and look for a home to fit their needs and budget.

1. Get your credit in shape. If you plan to finance your home purchase, check your credit history, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. That way, you can correct any errors and take measures to boost your credit score. Order your free credit report in writing from Equifax Canada and TransUnion Canada.

2. Get pre-approved for a mortgage. Early in your search, meet with a mortgage lender who will take a look at your credit history, your savings and investment statements and your current financial situation, and give you a better picture of what you can afford and the financing options available.

3. Establish your budget. Whether you’re financing your purchase or paying cash, it helps to establish a budget. This will help you focus your search on great homes within your price range.

4. Make a list. Buying a home is a process of elimination, not a process of selection. Make a list of your ideal home’s must haves and deal breakers. This will help you to narrow your search so that you can find a home that fits your current and future needs.

5. Think about resale. While you may purchase your home as a long-term investment, keep in mind that you may need to sell it one day. Consider the homes resale value when you’re looking at properties.

Landscape Your Property to Sell

Many potential buyers drive by a property they’re interested in before they arrange to view it with their real estate agent. If the outside of your home is unkempt or neglected, your potential buyers may overlook it, even if it’s updated and clean on the inside. Make sure that potential buyers get a great impression of your home by improving and maintaining its curb appeal.

Make Your Landscape Pop

• Add colour: Low-maintenance seasonal plants in brightly coloured planters add a pop of colour to your landscape and create visual points of interest.
• Plant colourful flowers: Inexpensive annuals, such as pansies and daisies, are an easy way to add splashes of colour to your garden beds. Plant flowers in complementary shades or the same colour for a high-impact monochrome effect.
• Frame your entryway: Well-maintained shrubs tie together the look of a yard. When placed on either side of your entryway, they can create a pleasing symmetry that enhances the exterior of the home. Just be sure to keep them trimmed and well-shaped.

Maintain Your Landscape

• Keep your garden beds in top shape. Weeds and dead plants may give buyers the impression that the rest of the home has been neglected. Pull the weeds, and clear away any dead leaves and plants.
• Mulch makes the garden look more polished. It also helps the soil conserve moisture and prevents weeds. If you have mulch in your gardens or around your trees, freshen it up with a new layer.
• Mow your lawn. A well-manicured lawn makes an immediate positive first impression on potential buyers. Plan to mow your lawn once a week; more often if it grows rapidly.
