In this episode, I talk with Kristina Wilson from the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) about the most important dos and don'ts when it comes to house hunting. Buying a home isn't as glamorous as all those home buying reality shows make it seem. It's a lot of work, there are a lot of documents to be aware of, and making one of the most expensive purchases of your life should not be taken lightly. Luckily RECO is here to help with experts like Kristina as well as a number of other useful resources to help any homebuyer make a financially responsible decision.
Long episode description:
This podcast episode is all about real estate — one of my favourite topics! If you’re a longtime blog reader, you already know I had quite the experience when my husband and I were trying to buy a house in Toronto last year. After two straight months of house hunting and bidding wars, we decided to take a rest and continue renting. If you’re not familiar with my house hunting blog series, definitely check out these detailed posts.

Even with that experience still fresh in my mind, over the past few months my husband and I have started talking about looking again. We now realize that owning a house is out of the question if we want to stay in the city, but we can definitely afford to buy a condo or townhouse, especially if we plan on continuing to live in good ol’ TO for the next 3-5 years.
That’s why I’m so excited to share my interview with Kristina Wilson from the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO). Kristina has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to real estate buying and selling, and we delve into all the important things you need to know as a potential buyer in this episode. Here are a few takeaways from this episode:
