When you are in the market to purchase a home, there are many things you’ll want to take into consideration. There are aspects of the home purchasing process you’ll need to understand, some more important than others.
First and foremost, start with preparing yourself with the wants and needs of your new home, as well as what sacrifices you’re willing to make – because there will be sacrifices, no house is perfect, not even new construction. Our team ensures our clients are as prepared as possible when they’re ready to move forward. It’s our sincere pleasure to see our Buyers find the house that they’re excited to call home.
Next, you’ll want to determine what type of financing is going to work best for you. There are many different options out there and each type of financing has it’s own rules and regulations to follow, some even have stipulations on the property’s overall condition. Lean on your Realtor and Loan Officer when it comes to knowing if the home you are looking at may cause a financing issue, they should be able to give you a good indication if the purchase will go through, prior to writing an offer.
Now we’re on to house shopping! You’ll want to keep an eye out for the condition of the major systems and mechanics of a home, i.e. the furnace/boiler, air-conditioner, water heater, roof, windows, etc. These are expenses that are more costly to replace, especially if you’re not prepared for them. When you’ve found a home that fits your needs, take a second look at these systems with your Realtor, write your offer accordingly and most importantly, get a home inspection. A home inspector will look at things that are not easily visible to you or your Realtor, you will need this inspection to understand how to care for your home and to determine if there are any items that should be discussed with the Seller.
Being an informed Buyer and aware of these few steps will make looking at homes much more enjoyable. While some properties may seem to be a great deal, they may also turn into a money pit if you don’t take the necessary precautions. On the other hand, many will be just what they seem to be – a not quite perfect yet fantastic home, at a fair market price.
Our Team looks forward to all of our clients finding the home of their dreams and we’ll be there to help with these and all the other steps in the home purchase process. We are here for the good, the bad, the ugly and everything in between.
