Buy a Home That Meets Your Needs:
The Right Price, The Right Area, Without the Stress
When you’ve made the all-out decision to buy a home what you’ve taken on is a major commitment in terms of both time and money.
There are many things to consider when purchasing a home, and the services of a professional real estate agent can be a big help when navigating this somewhat confusing process.
Although some feel they want to go it alone it’s worth remembering that…
A real estate agent is a professional who is trained in the ins and outs of the real estate industry. He or she will be able to guide you through the entire home selection and home buying process.
A professional real estate agent can also help you determine what type of home you can afford as you begin your search for your dream home. Another important function of the real estate agent is determining any restrictions or zoning laws that are applicable to the property you’re interested in. This is particularly important if you intend using your home for business or you intend to sub-divide etc. Zoning laws often prohibit commercial use of a property.
A professional, caring agent can also help the buyer to understand any disclosures and disclaimers that are being made by the seller. The laws regarding what must be disclosed vary from location to location, and the real estate professional will know what questions to ask to ferret out the information the buyer needs. He or she will know if water damage, termite damage, asbestos or other environmental issues must be disclosed in your particular location, and he or she will use this information to make sure there are no hidden dangers lurking in your new home.
The 7 Big Costly Mistakes People Make When Buying A Home & How To Avoid Them!
1. Lack Of Knowledge:
Learn as much as you can about home buying and the mortgage application process. Read as much as you can about buying a home.
2. Not Knowing How Much You Can Borrow:
Talk with several mortgage brokers in your area and get pre-qualified for a particular price range. The real estate agent and real estate company will be much more willing to work with you if they know you can afford the home you are looking at!
3. Failing To Get A Certified Inspection Prior To Closing:
A home inspection will protect you from flaws in the construction and condition of the home that are not obvious to the naked eye!
4. Changing Jobs In the Middle Of A Mortgage Application:
Remember that home mortgage brokers will take your job history and income potential into account. Most lenders prefer long-term employment histories!
5.Getting Emotionally Involved:
It is important to take the purchase of the home very seriously and try not to get emotionally involved. Especially, don’t become friends with the seller. Try to treat the home as a purely financial transaction.
6.Not Checking Your Credit Rating:
It is not unusual for credit reports to contain errors, get a copy of your own credit report and review it carefully prior to applying for a mortgage loan.
7. Finding People You Can Trust:
When you are making an important financial decision such as buying a home you will need to make sure that you are working with someone you can trust – avoid hustlers at all costs!
