Buying For Your Future

Buying a home is a massive investment. No one understands this quite like Calgary, Alberta home buyers in the last three years, where benchmark prices are soaring and competition is tight! People are having to put more money on the line, which has major long term effects, in both positive and negative ways.

Buying a home is also a really complex process! Studies suggest that moving comes only second to divorce as one of the most stressful life events someone will go through. Even with an incredible real estate professional on your side, like Ken Richter, the process is quite involved and will take energy and focus to do well.

This is why you need to be thinking ahead. Buying for the interim can work if you’re looking for a more affordable entry point into the market or know you’ll be making a big move in the next five to ten years. However, as much as humanly possible, knowing that life is full of curveballs, you need to buying a home for your future.

Forever homes may not be as common as they once were with family homesteads, but it is not unreasonable to aim to find a home you could spend the next thirty years in, depending on your age. To do this well, you need to take into consideration more things while searching for your dream home. For example, making sure the home has enough bedrooms to support your family planning, that the home will be accessible given any projected body limitations, and that the location will be supportive to your lifestyle.

Do not just buy something because you feel desperate or are anxious to get into the market. Buy something because it is a good fit for you.
