Learn About Your HomeWe know that buying a home is a complex process; there are many facets to consider before making this type of investment. Beyond deciding whether or not you like the home and if you can afford it, there are several other questions worth asking:

  1. How are the systems of the home functioning? Is it in good overall condition?
  2. Are there any moisture issues or leakages occurring in the home?
  3. Was it ever used as a grow house or meth lab? Are there homes in the area that were used this way?
  4. How are the local schools? Where do they rank on a regional and provincial level?
  5. What amenities are located near the home?
  6. What political riding will you become a part of? Who will be representing you?

Although some of these issues will have more bearing on the decision to purchase the property than others, all will have some impact on your comfort in the home and neighborhood.
