Buying a House In Edmonton

Posted by Gurpreet Ghatehora on Friday, March 28th, 2014 at 2:11am.

Many types of housing are available at a wide range of prices, so finding the right home for you and your family may take some effort. Like anywhere, prices depend on:

  • local economic and employment conditions
  • the number of houses and apartments available

When buying a home, you can either:

  • hire a professional real estate agent to manage the purchase for you or
  • buy the property directly from the owner yourself

You will also need to consult with professionals, including:

  • an appraiser and home inspector to assess the worth and condition of the home
  • a lawyer to protect your interests and to facilitate the transaction
  • a lender or mortgage broker to arrange for financing 

Choosing a neighbourhood 
There are many non-governmental agencies that
help immigrants make the adjustment to Canada.
The agencies are familiar with your culture and the
city. They can help you find the right
neighbourhood for you. 
Here are some things to keep in mind when you
choose a neighbourhood: 
Doctor, dentist
Are you close to medical and dental care? 
Fire department
Are firefighters nearby? Is it easy to find addresses in
the neighbourhood? 
Place of worship
Is there a place of worship for your faith in the
neighbourhood? 
Public transportation
Is the neighbourhood close to public transportation?
Will the public transportation system take you
where you need to go and do it quickly?
