5 Mistakes People Make When Buying A New Home
- Assessing your financial situation
What kind of mortgage they can get on their budget, how much they can spend on a down payment, how much money they will need to maintain their normal living expenses while in a new home, and the amount they have in their savings account is very important.
- The home itself
How big is the home, which town is the best fit for their lifestyle, what schools are in the general area. Whether they will need a house with a yard, a condo with a rooftop patio, or a walk- up- one floor- ground floor.
- Living in a bubble
Figure out where you will work, how you will commute, how often you plan to cook and spend time with friends and family.
- What will happen when something goes wrong
Who cares about a break in at the house, when a pipe bursts, when the roof leaks. Talk with your Realtor about what will happen should something go wrong before breaking the deal.
- Increasing the cost
Tips on increasing your chances of getting the best offer on a home and the best conditions for financing, should sell be necessary.
