BUYING A HOME ON HALLOWEEN
Halloween is a festive holiday that happens in the fall. Trick or treaters, costumes, and decorations tend to overwhelm homebuyers like you. If you want to buy a house, you should take note of the following tips before you make that important decision:
Search for Halloween themed open houses. Use your social media accounts in looking for open houses this Halloween. Check out any links that can lead to the actual photos of the house and the neighborhood. Also look for full descriptions of the house and the nearby establishments in the area.
Do not be content with photos. Photographs of the house are helpful, but some may have just been made to look nice. Descriptions and videos are more helpful. Some home sellers post video walk-throughs of their houses on YouTube. Look for links that would lead you there.
Get some feedback. It is nice to house hunt on your own, but you can also consult people within the area of the house that you want. You could chat with them or go to home buying forums online. Their honest opinions are always helpful.
Know the home. If you want more information about the home you want to buy, do your homework by going to the local library to seeif it is a home that doesn’t have any Amityville or Glass House background story in time for Halloween. Know the real reason behind the low price. Is it because house prices reduce during the fall, or did something sinister happen there? It is always better to be sure.
Check out the sellers. Be sure to know the sellers of the house as well. Real estate agents may or may not help in this situation, so insist on talking to the home owners who want to sell. It is comforting to know that the house you buy this Halloween won’t be from owners who have secret cameras lurking about the property. Always ask why they want to sell, to be clear about any issues you may encounter later.
Never be carried away by the decorations. A Halloween open house is a chance to see the inside of the house. Just be sure not to fall in love because of the decor, especially if you love Halloween. Stay on track by asking questions about the house underneath all those decorations.
Halloween or the fall season is the perfect time to buy a house. Make sure you stay on track with your goals and you might end up with your next dream home before Hallows Eve comes to an end.
