A Few Tips for First Time Home Buyers

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Hearthside

When it comes to diving into home ownership for the first time, it can seem like there are so many things you just don't know. Whether you're getting advice from your real estate agent, your friends or your family, there are so many things that seem like common sense that they might be lost in the mix of details. Instead of having to squeeze it out of them, here are some tips that are easily forgotten but still essential.

Be Patient and Take Your Time
It's certainly not the most popular advice, but one of the most important things when deciding to purchase a home is having the time and know-how to make the decision that is right for you. Since you'll need to consider so many different things when committing to such a significant purchase, from the neighborhood to the local amenities to the future salability of the home, it's always best to ask the questions so there will be less to regret.

Get More Than One Opinion
It's entirely possible that you've found a home you love and there's nothing that's going to get between you and it but getting someone else's opinion may provide the criticism you need to take a step back from a home-buying mistake. Instead of going it alone, bring along a friend or family member whose opinion you trust that will be honest with you about the flaws they see. It's possible that they may notice something you've missed that could make or break the entire deal.

Prepare for The Home Inspection
Until you do it, you never really know what you're going to find out during the home inspection, but doing a little bit of research to determine things you should be looking for can go a long way in saving money down the road. It may seem like you should be able to rely on the inspector to assess things for you, but by asking the right questions you might be able to spot the water tank that's about to give out or a leak that's about to get much worse.

There are a lot of little details that go hand in hand with purchasing a home, but often the advice that is the simplest is the easiest to forget.
