The Dos and Don'ts of Home Buying

Do Shop Around - Don't just hold interest in one house, check out a handful. Find out about the neighborhood, traffic, schools, and local entertainment. Talk to the people that have lived in the neighborhood for some time and find out their opinions and biggest complaints. And remember that the lowest price isn't always the best deal and that some houses can be deceivingly cheap. It's better to do too much research than not enough; you'll thank yourself for years to come.

Do Get to Know Your Realtor - There's so much to know about real estate that you can't possibly know all the ins and outs of the industry. That's why your best strategy is to find a realtor whom you can trust. An experienced and trustworthy realtor will take the time to explain to you your options and walk through the entire home buying/selling process with you.

Don't Pay Too Much - This may be obvious but you don't have to sell your first born child to be able to afford a home. The price of your home depends on various factors like size, location and neighborhood. Every house is unique and has both positive and negative attributes, a skilled realtor will be able to come up with a specific home that fits your wants and needs but isn't going to cost you your first born.

Don't Rush into Things - This is your house we're talking about. Whether you're going to own it for three or thirty years, you want to make sure that you do everything right. I know you're in a hurry to move in, but don't sign the first deal you see; do your homework first.hit counter
