Buying a home? Here are some things to think about.
It is a big decision and it is not easy to think without letting your emotions get in the way. But taking the time to get all the information available and using the services of a professional can save you time, money, and heartache.
Take the time to assess your needs, and prioritize your wish list. Talk to your realtor and let them help you sort through all the options to find one that fits you. Then take advantage of the services of an appraiser before finalizing your offer. It gives you a bit more perspective, and can even help in the negotiations. Make sure you have consulted a mortgage broker so that you know what you can afford and won't have any unhappy surprises when it comes time to get your financing. If you have a property to sell as well, be sure to work through a marketing plan with your sales representative. Once you are ready to buy be sure to understand what you are signing. Asking questions is very important. If possible get a Home Inspection and be sure to read the whole report (and keep it handy for future reference). If you find moving stressful, there are services that will do all of the work for you including arranging the change of address, and reconnecting of services. We have great resources, and checklists to help you get through the process. #realtor #AICValuationPros
