House hunting is an exciting time for everyone. It is a time for new opportunity, growth, and prosperity. Though the purchase of a new home is quite an accomplishment, it can be extremely stressful if you do not take the proper precautions. Our agents here at Bardell have a few tips for you to follow to make your home buying experience as drama free as possible
1. Make a list of everything you “must have” and stick to it.
What are some non- negotiable requirements for your home? What area is most desirable to your family? What will your daily commute to work be? What kind of schools are in your area of interest? Having a firm answer to all of these questions will significantly narrow down the number of houses you will view and ultimately simplify the choosing of your new home.
2. Get Preapproved!
Once you have completed the journey of finding the perfect home for you and your family, having to then go get preapproved for a mortgage loan can immensely slow down the process. Getting preapproved can also give you a precise figure on a monthly payment so you will be able to budget ahead of time.
Share any concerns you have about your purchase with your realtor. there are many things you are going to have questions about during the process. From inspection reports to closing costs, our agents here at Bardell will find your answer. Having an agent you can trust and confide in is the key to having a successful and drama-free home buying experience.
4. Don’t Linger too long.
Procrastination causes headaches. Not wanting to jump the gun too quickly is understandable, but the longer you wait to submit an offer on the home that best fits your needs, the slimmer your chances are of getting the home. Today’s housing market is fiercely competitive and houses sell quickly, especially in desirable areas and at a competitive listing price. Act wisely but quickly and listen to your agent, they are the professional.
