FIVE TIPS FOR HOUSE HUNTERS
The following tips can help homebuyers define their priorities and streamline the process of shopping for a home.
1 - Location matters. Location is a key consideration when choosing a home. Many factors can affect the desirability of a location including commute times to work, proximity to schools, and access to shopping, restaurants and other neighborhood attractions.
2 - List what you want in a home. You'll save hours of time if you decide early what features are most important. Your goal should be to find the right home without falling in love with one that may not suit your needs.
3 - Obtain a pre-qualification letter from a mortgage lender rather than guessing how much you are qualified to borrow. A buyer pre-qualified for a loan is often in a stronger negotiating position.
4 - Take good notes about the homes you visit. Turn your priorities into a personal checklist and use it to track the features of each property.
5 - A real estate professional can save a great deal of time and effort. Today's homebuyers have access to a wealth of information, but may not have a way to tailor it to their needs. That's where a real estate professional can be of great assistance.
