Buying a home on the Louisiana North Shore is an investment, and it is not something that should be done lightly. If you are used to renting, there are a few things that you should keep in mind if you are considering buying your first home on the Louisiana North Shore. The biggest difference between buying and renting a home on the Louisiana North Shore is that when you own your home, you are responsible for every maintenance need. When you rent, the landlord is responsible for all the repairs, unless the need for repairs is a result of damage that you did to the property. All you have to do is make a phone call. No need for paying a contractor. You don't even have to be home when the repairs are finished.

The point is, however, that when you own a home, you also own every single problem that home has, now and forever, or until you sell it. So you will want to make sure that your new home either doesn't have any problems going into the purchase, or you want to make sure that you are at least aware of every repair that you could possibly need to make. An inspection is key when you are buying a home on the Louisiana North Shore.

Finding a competent and professional real estate agent, like those in the Mixon Group, is also a necessity when buying a home on the Louisiana North Shore. An inspection will turn up any problems, and these can then be addressed with the seller. A good Louisiana Realtor like Jamie Mixon, will get you an inspection from a reputable source, so you can be sure that the results are something that you can trust.

A good Louisiana Realtor will also use the results of the inspection to help you get the best deal possible on your new home on the Louisiana North Shore. If there is a problem, you might be able to use that as a bargaining chip to get the price down a bit. If there aren't any problems, your Realtor may well be able to get the seller to throw in a home warranty to sweeten the deal.

A homeowner's warranty can cover a variety of things, from appliances to repairs. It is all in the type of policy purchased. Usually they are for a set term, such as a year. But you have the option of getting the warranty renewed, paying the fee yourself, at the end of the term. It is better to have a warranty like that and never need it than to need one and not have it. The warranty will help you cover major repairs and even replace some appliances if the need should arise.

Buying a home on the Louisiana North Shore doesn't have to be a frightening prospect, as long as you have the right person by your side, looking out for your interests. A Louisiana realtor like Jamie Mixon does just that. If you are thinking of buying a home on the Louisiana North Shore, you should definitely speak with a North Shore real estate agent at the Mixon Group. They will set your mind at ease and help you feel confident that you will get the home you want for a great price.

I just noticed by scrolling around the post there are links but they are not a different color or underlined unless you mouse over them.  Was this intentional and some new secret Lori Ballen method?
