3 Things for Homebuyers to Consider Prior to Purchasing


While there are multiple things to reflect on prior to moving forward, hiring an experienced Realtor that will look out for your best interests is most important. Together you can navigate toward a Happily Ever After.


These tips may be helpful in the home search:


Road Noise

If the sound of constant traffic traveling up and down at all hours of the day and night on the roadway behind the house you plan to buy is annoying in the least bit, find another to purchase. This will become a festering sore spot as time goes by and many times, the amount of traffic increases, rather than diminishing.


Buying Adjacent to Vacant Land

When looking in a subdivison for that forever home, one thing to consider is purchasing a home on the interior. Undeveloped land across the road deemed single family residential, can change to multi-family or commercial anytime. The unknown can create worry about effect on home values and quiet enjoyment.


Home Owner Association CCRs

Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions assure that everyone follows the rules for harmonious living. Read the documents carefully to ensure complete acceptance. The rules will not bend for you. Some communities are very stringent and determine restrictions on parking, paint colors, noise-levels and the type and size of pets.


Purchasing a home is a huge commitment that requires an eyes wide open approach, before, during and after the transaction. Keeping these things in mind, can be helpful from a realistic standpoint. Happy homebuying!

Those are very important things for homebuyers to consider wherever they purchase, as they will certainly affect resale value in the future.

Thank you so much Sheila Anderson! Recent clients absolutely loved this one home that had everything on their checklist, except for the busy road, it was a huge turnoff for him, not her though. He won and they moved on!

Hi Wanda:

These are certainly important issues to look for, and consider carefully, before moving forward. I often have buyers who want a quiet place and yet at the same time want to be close to shopping, commuting routes, etc.

It's essential to check out the noise, and on more than one occasion, to be sure it's OK with you... or not, especially since what is noisy to one person may not be to another. And if you have an issue, future buyers will as well.

You took me back in time, Wanda. Many years ago I had a would-be buyer who was interested in a house in a subdivision with CC&R's. He read the restrictions, then drove around the neighborhood, noting how many people were not in compliance.

When he came back to the office he announced a great plan for getting his house for free. He'd simply buy it, then sue all of those neighbors. My broker at the time overheard this and stepped in to give him a long list of "buyer beware" items. The well was shared and didn't have much output, many of the neighbors carried guns, no one maintained the dirt road, and on and on.

Finally the man (who, by the way, was a huge fat man) leaped from his chair and ran from the room, shouting "You're scaring the hell out of me!" We didn't hear from him again.

Road noise is an obvious thing to consider --sometimes it's distant and not noticeable, sometimes it's very loud b/c the house is adjacent to a busy street.  I often watch for the vacant land around new subdivisions--how is it zoned, what are the plans? Three simple but important things to consider here!
