Ready. Set. Shop – how to find your dream home

This is the fun part. Narrow down locations that are desirable. Unless you’re under the gun time-wise, look at as many homes as possible to get a sense of what’s available. Don’t rush into buying if you don’t have to.

Ready. Set. Go! – The ‘what to do’ checklist

So you’ve decided to start the loan application process. This is the turning point in making your dream home a reality! Here is an easy ‘ready, set – go!’ checklist to get you and Great Western off to a smooth start.
