Metro Detroit First time home buyer tips

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate One 6501304423

Today I was taking some Metro Detroit first time home buyers out looking at homes in Van Buren Township.  It was a newer subdivision that had many of the same styles of homes.  They were brick homes, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2 car garage.

We saw 6 different homes of various square footage and styles in the subdivision.  Even I was confused after seeing 6 homes.  What I recommend to all my first time home buyers is too keep a note pad.  Or to keep the listing papers.  When you come out of a house write some notes on the house.

Most importantly throw away the ones you don't like and start ranking them.  Which Van Buren home do you like the best, what's number two, and number three?

My Metro Detroit relocation buyers do that every day.  These people that relocate to Michigan have a few days to buy a home usually.  They are focused and organized. They always rank the homes they like.

I hope this Metro Detroit first time home buyer tip help make your home search easy

Hey Russ, just out of curiousity I would interested to see what that sort of property looks like and what they are currently selling for.  I think the entire Detroit area is value priced right now.
