Tips for First-Time Home-buyers
There is no perfect home
BE PICKY, BUT DON'T BE UNREALISTIC
DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU START LOOKING.
Decide specifically what features you want in a home and which are most important to you.
Be sure you have enough money to cover your down-payment and your closing costs.
GET YOUR FINANCES IN ORDER.
DON'T ASK TOO MANY PEOPLE FOR OPTIONS.
It will drive you crazy. Select one or two people to turn to if you feel you need a second opinion.
When is your lease up? Are you allowed to sublet? How tight is the rental market in your area?
DECIDE WHEN YOU COULD MOVE.
Are you looking for a starter home with the idea of moving up in a few years or do you hope to stay in this home longer? This decision may dictate what type of home you’ll buy as well as the type of mortgage terms that suit you best.
DON'T LET YOURSELF BE "HOUSE POOR".
If you max yourself out to buy the biggest home you can afford, you’ll have no money left for maintenance or decorate or to save money for other financial goals.
DON'T BE NAIVE.
Insist on a home inspection and, if possible, get a warranty from the seller to cover defects within one year.
Consider hiring a Realtor, a Realtor can assist you in finding the right lender for your needs.
