Taking the time to narrow down your house-hunting priorities can help your real estate agent provide you with a range of properties that meet your criteria, which increases your chances of finding the house that's right for you.

Important home buying questions to ask yourself:

  • Is this home the right size? Are there enough bedrooms and bathrooms?
  • Is the yard big enough? Does it have a finished basement?
  • Is it in your general price range?
  • What is the condition of the home? How old is the furnace and wiring? Take a look at the roof and the foundation.
  • Take a look at the neighbourhood. What's the condition of other homes in the area? Does the community appeal to you?
  • Is there access to public transit and major roads? Are there good public facilities like schools, hospitals, shopping and recreation facilities in the area?
  • Is this an older, more established neighbourhood or a new development?
  • How do the municipal taxes compare to those in other areas? Are there any development plans that will affect the neighbourhood?
  • Are there any zoning bylaws that might affect you - such as your ability to have a home office in your house?
  • Does the property have the potential to increase in value?
