Ready to start house hunting? Here are a few tips to keep in
Review your budget and get pre-approval before house
hunting. This will save you both time and heartache. Stick
to your budget to avoid becoming "house-poor" and to avoid
possible foreclosure in the future.
Think about the re-sale value of the home. Location is
an important factor when people are looking to buy a home.
School districts, proximity to shopping areas and highways,
and neighborhoods can be deal breakers for potential buyers.
View a house as the potential it has for you to make it
your home. Overlook the crazy wallpaper and bad paint color.
Focus on what youíre looking for in a layout and structural
items. Itís easy to change cosmetic details of a home and
it's less expensive too!
Make sure you hire an experienced home inspector to
point out potential problems that could require costly
repairs down the road. Do the inspection before the final
stages of the house-buying process.
these few tips in mind and youíll be well on your way to making
a smart purchase that will add value to your life for many years
