Your Two Cents - Selling Spryfield

Season 4 - Episode 6

< Back to all articles

Downtown living can be pricey. Purchasing a home on the outskirts could help your dreams and your wallet. Selling Spryfield is a fun way to encourage you to broaden your parameters and find out what’s really important to you in a home.

Here are 5 key questions to ask yourself when house shopping:

  1. Is the monthly mortgage payment in your budget?
  2. What will you pay in property tax?
  3. What is on your must-have list and what is on your nice-to-have list?
  4. Are you stuck on only purchasing in one neighbourhood, or are you open to looking at other options?
  5. Is your address really what defines you?

They do say home is where the heart is, but shouldn’t it be where your wallet is happy too? There’s no question that buying a home is a big step—and if it’s your first time, our Guide to Homebuying can help answer some of your questions. Otherwise, the friendly folks at your local credit union are always there to help.
