Should I buy a home now?

Bidding on a homeShould I buy a home now?

Are you in the middle of a career change? Are you planning on moving to a new city or out of Canada? If you answered yes to either of these questions…this is probably not the best time to buy a home.

Owning (as opposed to renting) is almost always a better idea than renting unless you want flexibility. Owning a home is a huge commitment and it is suggested that you keep your home for at least 5 years, You need to also consider that owning a home has unexpected costs:

1. Furnace Repairs or Replacement

2. Maintenance/Repairs

3. Insurance

4. Utilities

5. Taxes/Fees (if a condo)

However, if you own, your monthly mortgage payments are an investment and payments eventually stop. There is also a measure of mental and emotional stability in owning your home.
