Used homes may come with hidden -- often unpleasant -- surprises while new homes have warranties.

Real estate transactions: The basics of mortgages

When an Alberta couple decides to buy their first house, they may have many concerns and questions. Although they will likely use a realtor to search for their perfect home, they'll also need a savvy real estate attorney. It also helps to gain an understanding of mortgage financing options as they are typically an integral part of many real estate transactions

Steps before committing to a residential real estate purchase

When an Alberta couple becomes a family, a natural concern is where they will live. As the family grows, the possibility of purchasing residential real estate may arise. Of course, buying a home requires careful consideration, and relying upon experienced legal counsel is typically an invaluable asset.

Alberta residents who are looking to purchase a home may look at the asking price without factoring in closing costs, which can account for substantial additional funds. To close deals on real estate transactions, buyers typically have several other expenses that might catch them unprepared.
