Some things to consider before you start house hunting...

Where do you want to be? Don't just think about today....think about the next handful of years too. How far are you willing to drive for work, school, kids activities and recreation. Does the house or location matter more? Do you want the convenience of in town living or privacy and space on your own acreage? 

Were can you afford to be? Prices vary a lot from one area to the next. In the Kootenay Lake area the city of Nelson tends to be the most expensive. As you move further away prices decrease. Nelson's North Shore prices are also comparable to Nelson until about 20 minutes away from town and then we see prices soften. We are seeing a huge increase in people choosing smaller towns a half hour to an hour away from Nelson such as Salmo, Kalso and Slocan where you can still get the same home you would in Nelson for $100,000-$200,000 less. Castlegar, Trail and Rossland are all extremely busy as well.


Are you as ready as you can be to write an offer? 

Getting pre-approved for a mortgage should be one of your first steps in the home-buying process. That way when you see something you like, you will be ready to act on it. Plus you will know how much you can afford to spend. In this competitive market where competing offers are the norm being pre approved is a must. To get pre-approved you can work with either a mortgage broker, who can connect you with the right lender, or directly with a bank, if you like the loan program they offer. Mortgage brokers are a great option because they work with multiple different lenders.
