Are you ready to be a home-owner?
House-hunting is one of the most stressful yet exciting and fun part of your journey to become a home-owner. We’ve prepared these steps to help you prepare the search for your dream home.
Today is the “Perfect Time” to buy
Homes are going really fast. Don’t risk losing a home you love because you’re trying to guess where the housing market and interest rates are going. Those factors usually don’t change fast enough to make a difference in an individual home’s price.
Pay attention to what’s important
Make a decision based on the needs and wants of the people who will actually be living in the home. Listening to many opinions from too many people will make it hard for you to make an informed decision.
Make a list of your priorities
Knowing what features needs to be prioritized will help you find the “perfect home” easier. Finding a home in right location but with small yard than you hope, or getting the perfect living area but a kitchen needing minor repairs can be a deal breaker but if you will focus in on things that are most important to you, that home in front of you could be the perfect home.
Don’t try to be a killer negotiator.
Negotiation is an important part of the real estate process, but trying to “win” by getting an extra-low price or refusing to budge may cost you the home you love. Our real estate experts will guide you in the negotiation process to get that dream home under contract.
Plan and prepare your finances ahead
Be approved for a mortgage before starting your home search. It will show the sellers that you are a serious homebuyer. There’s nothing more attractive to a seller than a smooth transaction.
Choose the home you fell in love with
While owning a home is a great investment, it shouldn’t be the first thing in your mind when making your decision. Make sure you choose the home that will fit your lifestyle
