Choosing the right type of co-ownership property for your particular lifestyle and financial situation requires some research and reflection.

Wow! ready to make the big move for the first time or again, Congratulation :)

  • Where to begin? News papers, Specialized publications, construction site sale’s office, real estate agent or Internet. All good medium’s, honestly, follow your heart but remember to think with your head!!!
  • What are you looking for, exactly?
  • What neighborhood would be your choice and why? What is in this area? How do I commute to work? I work from home so, you need a place you will feel comfortable living and working in?
  • What can I afford now and my budget? Answering this question will down size your search. Be cautious of the after purchase costs, notaries, taxes, insurances etc… they can add up. Don’t be mislead you don’t want to buy a close space for your new home, right?

As you can notice below we have made various sections within Condo Life in order to inform you and help you hopefully?

We will try to answer some of these questions you may have on Condo Montreal Blog. Do we have all the answers, we cannot be so pretentious, and say yes. If we don’t have the answer, we will try to refer you to someone who will.

Enjoy your quest for your new home. Montreal is a beautiful city to live in and the city has a lot to offer.
