As an Ottawa homeowner myself, I went through the normal trials and tribulations attributed to the process of buying a home. Accordingly, the first thing was making the decision to go from paying rent to paying a mortgage. All in all, the only difference is, me and the bank, own my house and that all responsibilities fall to me when it comes to repair and upkeep of the property.
Nevertheless, There is pride in owning a house in Ottawa that I can call my home. At any rate, getting what I wanted in the house I eventually purchased took some looking and steadfastness, on my part. Face it sales people are sales people, which means even a real estate agent or broker will attempt to sell you something that you really do not want. That stated, purchasing a house is the biggest investment a person ever makes, after their education, or a vehicle, which means, when shopping for a house you should be diligent and unpersuasive in getting what you want.
Ask yourself these questions, did you get the education you wanted, (not what your parents, teachers or friends suggested)? Are you driving the car of your choice, not a girl friend’s choice or out of peer pressure? If you can answer these questions with a definitive “yes”, then how can you possibly let someone talk you into getting a house here in Ottawa that you do not want?
There are plenty of used houses for sale and the probability of finding one that matches what you want is good. However, one consideration for a used house, or pre-owned home, is the condition, its age and whether or not it meets the present building codes, if you plan to renovate.
On the other hand, having your dream home built from scratch, is the best way to get what you want in a home. However, most of us only have a partial idea of what we may desire in a home. That is until we have lived in a home that do not quite fit our needs. One point of view is, a person can determine their basic needs while living in a rented property, after which they can gain a good handle on what they would do differently when building a home here in Ottawa.
