Are you moving or hunting for your first apartment? New Brunswickers who are looking to rent, should be aware of a scam that targets individuals searching for their new home.
Buying a new (or new-to-you) vehicle is a major purchase and an exciting experience often wrapped up in a surprising amount of emotion. For many people, their vehicle is more than a tool to get from A to B. They’re often an expression of personal style, a bit of a status symbol, and represent freedom. Of course, it’s important to remember that’s it’s also a major financial commitment.
When you find the home you want, it’s time to consider making an offer.
However, in a hot sellers’ market, it can often be difficult to buy the home you want when faced with competing offers from other home buyers.
What does it mean to spend smart? It’s more than just finding the best deal. It means knowing your spending limits, knowing your rights and responsibilities as well as being informed before you buy. Don’t be tempted into a fast purchase by a flashy red sale sticker. Look for a good, reliable product that is reasonably-priced.
For most people in New Brunswick, a home is the largest single purchase or investment they will make. So it’s important to fully understand, and think through, every stage of the purchase decision—from finding the right house at the right price, to finding the right mortgage at the right rate, to finding the best insurance for your needs.
