House Hunting Tips

Buying a new home can be exciting, but don’t be unprepared

Do Your Homework ~ Gather information about neighborhoods, school districts, crime statistics, and local communities – much of this is available on the Internet. Also spend time thinking about how much you can afford to pay, and what kind of home might be right for you.

Make A List ~ Before you see any homes, write down the features you need versus those you want for your family’s new home.

Evaluate A Real Estate Agent ~ You can search for a house on your own, but there are many advantages to using a real estate agent. Find one that will work with you to find that perfect house.

Get Prequalified for A Mortgage ~ Rather than guessing or estimating how much you can afford to spend, ask for a letter stating how much you’re qualified to borrow. By getting your financials in order, you will save time, aggravation and heartache when purchasing your home.

Side-By-Side Comparisons~ A tally to compare homes is a great tool to use after you have looked at several houses. Use your home comparison tally to eliminate the frustration of forgetting why you liked or disliked a home.

Relax ~ Maintain your perspective and your cool. You may find the house of your dreams on the first day or the 30th. Remember, your goal is to find the right home for your family.
