Today, I want to touch on another of our five essential home buying tips. Tip #3 is Buy for Your Lifestyle. This is a big one that often times gets overlooked.

The typical homeowner will trade a house in Calgary every five years or so. When looking for a home, you need to be mindful both of what you’re looking for today and what you might want a few years down the road. Few buyers are able to use that kind of foresight when buying, but it’s crucial to keep in mind how you anticipate your needs to change in the coming years.

It’s not uncommon for people to get emotional when buying, but it’s crucial to try your best to keep a level head. In fact, I want to challenge you to take a step back and really focus on what your life is like now and what your plans are in the next five years. Are you planning on starting a family? Are you planning on having your parents or inlaws move in? These are just a few of the many things you need to keep in mind when you’re buying!
