House hunting can be lot of fun as well as frustrating, and the better prepared you are, the easier your search will be. Once you made the decision to buy property, you should first search for a realtor® that you feel comfortable with. Remember, the listing agent works for the seller, not the buyer.
Next, determine the neighbourhood in which you wish to live.

Now list these in order of priority. Remember to be flexible regarding your desired features, especially if they can (sometimes quite easily and without great expense) be added later on. Remember to differentiate between required and desired.

  1. Space - nbr. of bedrooms, bathrooms, basement, familyroom, finished basement suite etc.

  4. Desired features - fireplace, hardwood floors, etc.
