How to get the best price for your home

Home prices across Canada and the United States are rising faster than most people think, with many Canadians buying their first home in the spring or summer.

Here’s how to do it. 1.

Look for the cheapest price, then buy as much as you can afford The typical price of a home in Canada is $1.5 million or less.

That’s not a bargain for a home of modest size or features.

But for a large family, it’s a huge bargain.

“The average price in the GTA in June 2017 was $1,827,000,” said Mark Meeus, president of Toronto-based broker Chris Hillman Realty Group.

“That’s higher than the national average price of $1 million, which was $922,000.”

You can still find great deals if you’re lucky.

Meeos said if you buy in the summer, there’s usually a good chance you’ll end up with the best deal on your home.

“If you’re in a region where there’s a good supply, there is a lot of competition for the best value in terms of quality and value,” he said.

“In the GTA, that’s a pretty good indication.”

You might want to think about a big-screen TV, too.

That might mean you’re paying more than you think.

And if you live in the suburbs, you might want a smaller home.

Buy a home with extras and keep it for as long as you’re able.

Mees said if your home is not in the best shape for the price you’re looking at, there are other options, such as renovating.

“When I look at people buying in the next couple of months, I’ll be the first to say that if I was going to buy my first home, I would definitely not do it in a new location,” he says.

If you’re thinking of buying a home, it might be best to do so while the market is hot.

A good place to start is your local real estate board, which can give you an idea of what’s on the market.

You can also search online, though there’s no guarantee that the information you find will be correct.

You might also want to talk to a real estate agent to help you find the best deals.

In Ontario, the real estate association has a website called Real Estate Deals.

You’ll want to sign up if you want to buy a home.

And you can use the website to find a listing for your new home.

2.

Find out if there are any taxes to pay If you live near a city with a lot more people, there may be additional taxes to worry about.

If so, it may be a good idea to look into your local municipality’s policies.

A website called TaxSmart allows you to compare the taxes you might have to pay to the cost of living in a different city.

And in many cases, you can also use the same website to look at different locations and different taxes.

If your home doesn’t have any significant changes in the past year, it could be possible that your taxes will be waived.

If the property is a retirement home, there could be a chance you won’t have to file a tax return.

“You have to be careful about paying taxes that are going up and down,” said Mees.

“It’s a bit of a roller coaster for a lot people.”

3.

Don’t forget about your pets.

You may be able to get away with a small home if your pets don’t get into trouble.

But there’s nothing wrong with bringing your pet along on vacation, especially if you plan to buy and renovate the home.

If pets are a big part of your household, it can be difficult to plan ahead.

You should also be aware of the province’s pet-friendly laws, especially when it comes to pets.

If it’s your first home and you’re buying in a city that’s pet friendly, you may be better off buying a smaller property, say $300,000 or less, and then paying a pet-sitter to care for your pet.

If they are a pet owner, they’ll probably pay a lot less.

“I think it’s really important that if you have a pet, you take the time to really make sure you do the right thing,” said David MacNamara, chief executive officer of real estate broker ChrisHillman Realtors.

“Your pets can be your life.”

Think about what’s out there and where you live In some cases, your home might not be in a bad place to buy.

“A lot of people are looking at the market right now because of the recession,” Meees said.

But don’t overlook some of the best places to buy for a smaller, cheaper home.

You could consider a city like Hamilton, where you can enjoy a big downtown and lots of amenities, or you could look at areas with a higher rate of new homes.

For a smaller house, you
