When buying your first home, you may feel a wave of emotions, ranging from joy and excitement to nervousness and apprehension. There are many issues to be addressed and it’s important to have a good realtor to guide you through through the necessary steps. With over 20 years experience as a broker and realtor I would be happy to share my knowledge of the home buying experience so you can find the home of your dreams.
Things to Consider Before Buying a New Home
Before signing your name to any deeds, you will need to do a lot of research and personal soul-searching first. For starters, it’s important to know exactly what kind of home you want: i.e. is it a two or three-bedroom house or a one-bedroom condo, etc.? You can then take this wish list and come up with a reasonable budget. Once you bring this information to me, we can immediately start looking for places that meet your criteria.
You’ll also need a resident’s look at the community. For example, it’s great to know where the best schools are, the proximity to fine dining and shopping, and where to find other recreation and entertainment options. As a St Albert specialist I will do my best to fill you in on the most important information about the area to help you find the home that suits your needs.

Matching Clients with the Right Homes
I am aware that a good real estate agent knows that each client will have unique needs, especially as it pertains to purchasing a new home. It is, therefore, the job of the realtor to make sure that the client’s wishes are addressed first and foremost throughout the buying process. For example, searches should only be done with the client in mind and with the client’s approval. To put it another way, the realtor’s desires should be the client’s. As your real estate agent, I will strive to meet your desires!
First Time Home Buyers
If you are a first time home buyer, you are no doubt experiencing a wave of emotions right now, not the least among them both excitement and worry for the future. During this period, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is to try going about the process alone. Rather than doing this, you will be much better off trusting a professional real estate agent to help guide you, and I would love to do exactly that for the first time home buyers in St. Albert.
The following are just a few tips to help you get started.
Figure Out Your Goals and Budget
Before you start looking at homes, you should have a very clear idea in mind of what you want out of your new home. However, while visions can change, budgets should not. You must set a fine budget right from the start, though not without a little wiggle room. If nothing else, having your goals and budget defined early will make finding the right home to fit your needs even easier.
Learn the Area
Prospective homeowners should also know what kind of community they want. This is, of course, a very broad topic and can encompass everything from the local school system and volunteerism opportunities to area parks and entertainment venues. For those thinking about starting a family, these elements become even more important, though, without a professional St. Albert real estate agent, you could be oblivious of these many resources.
