When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
I am familiar with homes available on the market, and know neighborhood values well, therefore, I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: Is it a move up, down, laterally or just to a different style to suit your changing needs? Is it to entertain business associates? To stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific and prioritize the "must haves", then add the "want to haves."
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west); neighborhood (character and settled or sparkling new; near a particular school zone; recreational facilities; or other community services such as transportation, seniors centers, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work, hobbies or play.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, an older one or a fixer upper?
In addition, consider how long you expect to live in this particular home and before you buy. The re-saleability of each particular property is very important, as someday you or your heirs will want to sell it.
