Buying your first home ........................with ease
Avoid some of the most common, painful and frustrating mistakes first time home buyers usually make
Buying a residence can be a hair raising experience. You will experience a roller coaster of emotions while finding the right place, securing a loan and finally moving in. For most of us, the first time home purchase is the largest investment we have ever considered. The emotions of purchasing something so expensive and personal can often cloud our business judgment.
Most home purchasers do little or no research before they invest their nest egg. Doesn't it make sense to become completely informed as possible before you buy your first home? The right real estate professional can help you make good sound business decisions based on your personal situation
1.Inspect, inspect and inspect: Go over the valuation report with a fine tooth comb. Make sure the report was done by a professional valuer and surveyor, do not take anything for granted...........inspect everything as much as you can!
2.Imagine the property vacant: your furnishings and decorations will be the ones filling this new residence. Do not be swayed by beautiful furniture; it leaves with the owner.
3.Income + lifestyle = mortgage payment: Incase you are going to get a loan or want a mortgage -sit down with a professional and honestly discuss your income level and living expenses. Take into account future considerations, children , amenities and fix-ups. Your dream home is certainly worth a sacrifice but do not mortgage your entire future.
4.View several homes; see at least 7-10 properties. Do not move too slow but do not move on the first property you see. With a good agent's help you should be able to view enough properties to get a good overall perspective of the home market. When you find the right property all the leg work will be worth it.
5.Utilize your team; By aligning yourself with the right real estate agent you will have an entire team at your disposal. Utilize your lender, lawyer and valuer, each of them should work hand in hand for your benefit. Explore all the options before you sign anything.
6.Do a final walk through; Visit the property after all the furnishings have been moved out to be sure there are no surprises. Be absolutely positive the property was left exactly as you had agreed upon in the contract. Things that could have been spotted in a final walk through are often unintentionally overlooked.
7.If its not in writing, it doesn't exist; All promises and discussions should be in writing do not make any assumptions or believe any assurances. Even the best intentions can be misinterpreted. Have your professional keep an ongoing log in writing of all discussions and get the seller's written approval on all agreements.
8.Loyalty breeds loyalty; Be open, honest and upfront with your team. Hard feelings and disloyalty will cause head aches, delays or may even keep you from getting into the home you worked so hard to locate. Take the time to select the right team in the beginning and your first home purchase will be a pleasing and memorable experience.
