Finding the right home can be quite a challenge for many. A first time home owner, those with a growing family and those looking to downsize all have very different criteria on what a house should offer.
My parents are looking to downsize and have less maintenance. They want a bungalow condo which allows them to have a home with the bedroom and laundry room on the main floor. They don’t want to deal with stairs any more. They want the condo aspect as they also don’t want to take care of the yard or maintenance of the house (but they still want a back yard to sit outside and have coffee or wine with their friends).
If you are a first time buyer, you will probably be looking at entry level homes more from a pricing aspect and you will need to provide a hefty amount of money for a down payment. Down payment fees vary depending on where you live and what your credit score is.
The amount of funds you can get for a home loan, or a mortgage, depends on your credit score, your ability to make payments, the amount you want to borrow and the amount you will be putting down on the home.
Great Communities to Live In
In Canada, one of the best communities to live in is Oakville. It is a beautiful community will lots of parks and trails as well as great restaurants, great schools and activities. Although there are some stunning mansions in this town, there are also affordable Oakville townhouses and Oakville condos on the market.
For those of you planning on doing any renovations and replacing your old windows, you will want to make sure that you put in quality windows and not something flimsy. Either vinyl replacement windows or custom architectural windows should be custom fit to work with the style of your home. You need to ensure that you have a quality team of installers who will do the work properly and with great care and detail oriented. Oakville windows need to ensure that the heat stays in your home on the cold and windy nights.
Beautiful windows are the topping accents to your home. Your windows let the world know what your taste is and how you care about your house. For every home, no matter the size or value, each window needs to be custom measured and made to ensure that they fit properly so that you don’t have any heat leaking out or rattling of the windows when the wind blows.
With good windows, you will have them in your home for 30 years or more. It is a wise investment if you plan on living in your home for a long time, but great for resale value should you move. Oakville windows are very important to the resale value of your house, so don’t put in anything cheap.
