The best way to make sure you choose the right home is to properly prepare yourself. The purchase of a home is a tremendous investment, both monetarily and emotionally.
The purpose of this page is to provide you with some tips to help your transaction progress run smoothly and result in you being a happy homeowner.
Your home is likely to represent one of the largest investments in your life. In order to make sure the transaction goes smoothly, it is of vital importance that you choose the right agent to represent your interests.
The ideal agent will be someone whose experience and personality makes you comfortable. At the same time, you'll want to find an agent that is also familiar and knowledgeable about the area you plan on moving to.
There is nothing more frustrating than looking for a home, finding the perfect house, and then discovering it is out of your price range.
Speak with a lender to learn about the different financing options available to you. When you find the right lender, get the paperwork processed ahead of time so you'll be ready to buy once you find your perfect home.
In order to determine the amount of home you can afford, a lender will use your debt-to-income ratio to determine the percentage of your pre-tax income you spend on debt.
Your debt ratio will include: monthly housing costs, car payments, credit cards, student loans, and any other installment debt. If you take on more debt before buying a home, it will have an impact on the amount of the loan that the lender will finance.
To make an educated decision, you need to know what is available and how much it is going for. You can browse all the active listings from our website to do this.
Once you have found some homes you like, you can save those searches and sign up for property watch. Any new listings that fit your criteria will then be emailed to you.
Remember: the best homes move fast. We will work with you to monitor the available inventory at all times so you never miss out.
The last thing you want to discover after you've bought a home is that you've purchased a "money pit." By that, we are referring to a home full of defects which will end up costing you a lot of money.
Save yourself from future litigation by bringing in a licensed home inspector before you buy. If any problems are found, the report will help you make an informed decision or negotiate a better price.
