How to Buy a Condominium in 2023 (without buyers remorse)

 

BE FINANCIALLY PREPARED

Buying a condominium is a highly personal decision, and because it is the largest single purchase most people will make, it is critical to be financially prepared and have a firm understanding of the mortgage payments that you are most comfortable with.  One should also consider Maitenance Fees and Property Taxes when figuring out the total montly costs.

 

DON’T WAIT ON THE SIDELINES

If you’ve outgrown your current place or want to downsize, or want/need to get out of your parents house, waiting until the market conditions are ideal may lead to disappointment. While interest rates have risen in the last year, there are many financing options, future refinance opportunities, and the knowledge that real estate investments provide a significant return.¬† Prices have dipped from previous highs as well offering some opportunities that will not last.

 

BUY WHAT YOU NEED AND STAY WITHIN YOUR BUDGET

Have you found a condo you like in a neighbourhood where you want to live? If it fits within your budget, it is likely the best option for you! However, if you are forced to make significant financial sacrifices in order to complete the purchase, you may experience buyer’s remorse and be in danger of making an unwise purchase.
