It can be hard to know what neighbourhood to buy in when you’re moving from another province or country. But I can help you find the right neighbourhood in Edmonton! Here’s how.
There are a lot of people moving to Edmonton from other parts of the country—mostly BC and Ontario right now. If this is you, you probably want to have a home to move into when you get here. In my opinion, it’s really important to know where you’re going to buy. So if you don’t really know the city, how do you figure out where to go?
Well, I have a ton of realtor contacts and I’m happy to make introductions to people who are experts on neighborhoods. They can help you find the right place!
In terms of getting the mortgage, there are a few extra challenges when you’re moving to a new province. These are mostly around getting your job secured. Of course, you need a job in order to qualify for the mortgage. Most people are moving with their current employer or they can work remotely. That is much simpler than if you’re arriving and don’t have anything lined up. You need big down payments and a strong prospect in that case.
I also have a helpful video about tips for moving to Alberta from another province.
