Buying A Home in Edmonton

With a variety of homes for sale in Edmonton, and surrounding areas such as Beaumont, Leduc, Nisku, Sherwood Park, St. Albert, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, picking a floorplan and buying a home can seem like an intimidating process; so many things to consider, research, plan and take care of. While we can't hope to cover it all on this page, we have outlined some important items for you to consider and make sure that you don't overlook them while buying your new home.

Planning & Research for a New Home

While our knowledgeable staff is here to help you throughout the entire new home building process, including making design selections for your new home, we encourage our customers to do some initial planning and research. This will help you narrow down what you want, and what features of your home are most important to you and your family. Identify the lifestyle considerations of your family, and how you want your new home to improve your day to day life.

We recommend discussing your new home build with your family and friends to get their opinion and feedback on important features. Looking at other homes, areas and pictures is an excellent way to get inspiration on layout, style, finishes and features that you would like to see in your new home.

Come prepared with this information and we can help you live better with the right home for you.

Financial Considerations for Buying a Home

Make sure you pre-qualify for your new home mortgage to give you peace of mind in knowing what you can afford, and what fits comfortably in your financial budget.  Carefully weigh options such as bi-weekly versus monthly payments to maximize the efficiency of your payments and have an impact on the overall home mortgage.
