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

Winter 2020 Home Buyer GuideMy free 2020 Winter Home Buying Guide is ready, and you can download it for FREE. If you are planning to sell your home and buy another this guide will help you, too!

 

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.

 

You can download both questionnaires on my website, or by clicking on these links – Buyers What’s Important to You and a Buyer’s Lifestyle Questionnaire.

 

 

BUYER HANDBOOK and CHECKLISTS

Home Buyer HandbookWhen 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.

 

 

YOUR NEXT STEP - A BUYER CONSULTATION

If you have any questions about the real estate market, the home buying process, life in Carlsbad and North San Diego County, getting pre-approved, and anything else, please reach out to me by calling or texting me at my mobile office at (760) 840-1360, or emailing me at JeffDowlerSolutions AT gmail dot com.

 

Carlsbad home searchWe will talk about your needs, timing and budget, and then craft a strategy to get you into a new home in 2020!

 

You can start a home search of the complete inventory in Carlsbad, and in other nearby communities, by clicking on the photo to the right >>>>>>>>>>>>>.

 

If you have a particular area you are interested in let's talk further. Then I can email you a custom search that works for your personal needs, budget, and lifestyle.

Thanks Wayne Martin I appreciate it.

Here too Barbara Todaro and there will be more competition with other buyers. And who knows how long interest rates will stay where they are.
