What should you know when buying a property?
 Buying a home is probably one of the most important financial decisions one can make.  Besides looking for the home of your dreams there are many aspects to consider.

Often people forget that a home is also an investment.  It is a capital investment that is non-taxable for years to come. Choose your investment wisely.  Work with an agent who knows the area, who lives and works there:

    * Predetermining financing is mandatory. Without knowing how much money you can access, it is impossible to select the property that is appropriate for you.
    * Cost can vary from property to property. Some factors to consider are:
          o Price of the property
          o Deposit (5%-10%)
          o Survey if needed (around $700)
          o Legal costs ($500 +)
          o Title Insurance if needed ($250)
          o Land transfer taxes (Ontario and Toronto)
          o Statement of Adjustment
          o Home Inspection fee if needed
          o Fire Insurance
