Carlsbad Home Buyer Resources for 2020
If you are considering buying a Carlsbad home in 2020, or one in a nearby community, you’ll find these home buyer resources helpful.
HOME BUYER GUIDE
As a buyer it’s important to become as educated about the home search and buying process as you can before getting started, even if you are an experienced home buyer! There’s a lot to know, and important decisions to make.
While this buyer guide does not cover everything you should know, it will help you understand the following, and more:
1. 4 Reasons to Buy a Home this Winter - Waiting to buy could cost you more money with the expected rising prices and predicted higher interest rates to consider.
2. Buying a Home - Do You Know the Lingo? – the real estate business has quite a vocabulary, with some important terms you should know.
3. Why you Should have a Professional on YOUR side – having a real estate professional to watch out for your financial and other interests, answer questions, educate you, and guide you from start to finish in your transaction is key. The listing agent represents the seller, not you!
When we work together I will explain all this and more, and answer all of your questions, including some I bet you don't even realize you have!
HOME BUYING VIDEOS
Another resource you may find helpful is a home buying video series on my YouTube Channel at HOME BUYING TIPS AND ADVICE. There are 23 short (1 – 2 1/2 minute) videos on key things you should know as a home buyer - getting pre-approved, figuring out what you want in a home, seller disclosures.
A 1-Minute Introduction to the Home BUying Tips and Advice Video Series
While these videos do not cover everything to know and understand about home buying, you will gain a better idea of what you can expect and a number of key questions will be answered.
HOME BUYER QUESTIONNAIRES
I have created 2 questionnaires to help you think through the issues that are important to you in your new or next home, including lifestyle matters like proximity to shopping and services. The intent is to help you narrow down the list of things that you need in a new home so you know what’s most important in your search. This will help you focus on finding the right community and home that fits your personal needs, lifestyle and budget.
BUYER HANDBOOK and CHECKLISTS
When we work together to find you the right home that fits your needs and budget, I’ll share my Buyer’s Handbook with you, along with checklists, at key points in the transaction (e.g., opening escrow, 10 days to closing), to help keep you on track so you don’t forget anything.
And of course I will be there every step of the way to guide you through your transaction, answer all of your questions, and help you find the best solutions to any problems that might arise.
