Finding your dream condo in the city can be stressful, especially with so many options to choose from! Here are five top tips to help you find your dream home … and hopefully save in the process!
Tip 1. Plan your budget ahead of time
Before you do anything, figure out what you can afford and how much you’re eligible to borrow. Don’t forget to factor in costs like notary fees, condo fees and property taxes.
Tip 2. Choose your location wisely
Location is everything when it comes to real estate. Pick a neighbourhood you know you’ll be happy living in, close to the action and public transit. Properties in prime locations will be more likely to go up in value, and be easier to rent out or resell down the road.
Tip 3. Buy it before it exists
Buying a condo in presale can add up to big savings. Developers often offer promos for presale buyers, and let you pay your deposit in instalments. Plus there’s a good chance your property value will increase before you even move in!
Tip 4. Get the most bang for your buck
Today’s condo market is competitive, which could mean major perks for you! Look out for projects that come with inclusions like appliances and air conditioning or a pool and gym at no extra cost to you.
Tip 5. Rethink the fancy amenities
Do you really need a Moroccan hammam and big-screen cinema in your building? Unnecessary extras like these come with a hefty price tag (cleverly hidden in your condo fees!). The best thing about buying in Montreal? Everything you need is right outside your door!
