You only get one chance to get it right when buying a home. You need someone by your side to avoid costly mistakes. Check out our tips below to save time and money!
1. Not getting pre-approved.
Step one in the home buying process is getting pre-approved. If you want the best rates, avoid the following:
- Buying a car – or any major purchases. You’ll get better rates if you don’t have as much debt.
- Moving money around – It may show a large deposit in one account, but also a withdrawal in another.
- Changing jobs – You’ll want to show you have security and stability.
2. Relying on an internet search instead of a qualified agent.
The internet is a great place to start looking for a home, but it won’t get you the best home for the best price. Our agents know the market and work with a large network. An agent will go through your criteria, your needs and wants, to match them with not only the houses on the market you’ll find in your internet search, but also the houses that have yet to come onto the market. An agent can not only find you the houses, but schedule showings and negotiate the best deals. If you’ve already started the buying process, it’s not to late to hire a great agent.
3. Not getting a home inspection
Home inspections protect you and your family. Mold, plumbing, structural damages, electrical issues are just some of the problems you could be purchasing. The only real way to get that information is by hiring a professional, licensed home inspector. Be sure you also get a good warranty to cover anything that may have been missed.
4. Getting wrapped up in the excitement
What’s more exciting than dreaming of the possibilities and searching for the perfect home for your family to live in? Home is where the heart is, but it can lead to mistakes in the home buying process. Usually it’s the first time home buyers that get swept up in the excitement of it all, but it can happen to the most experience of investors. It’s important to keep your emotions in check and focus on what you really need.

The property that Helen listed and sold for us was our 6th home we have sold. Our experience was amazing. Helen is an outstanding broker, and knows her business better than any other realtor we have ever worked with. She is a top producer for a reason. I very highly recommend using Helen Olivieri as your broker/realtor when selling a home. She is outstanding at what she does.
I felt as though I had a trusted friend by my side each and every step of the way while buying my very first home. Helen is honest and genuine, an invaluable trait in a friend, so you can imagine how pleased I was to find it in an agent! She answered all of my questions and explained the things I didn’t understand without making me feel silly or inferior. When the time comes, I won’t hesitate to entrust the sale of my home to Helen. Working with her was truly a pleasure!
We had our house up for sale six months with a limited service realtor, only to be constantly disappointed. You turned things around for us in six weeks! And for a selling price we were happy with. Our only regret is that we didn’t sign up with you in the first place. You people are serious – and it’s so obvious that you love what you do. Bottom line, we’ll recommend you to anyone who wants to experience real professionalism and real action! You’re the best Helen!
My experience working with Helen was excellent. She is the pit bull of real estate! Not only knowledgeable and professional but very aggressive when it comes to selling your home. I would highly recommend them if you need to sell your home fast! Despite having so many listings she was always easy to get a hold of. Her knowledge of our local market was exceptional! I would highly recommend using Helen for all your real estate needs.
I must tell you, your staff is the kindest, most courtesy, helpful people I have ever run across. It is a pleasure to work with them. Thank you again for your prompt assistance.
Selling your home is stressful but not with Helen. She will guide you completely through the process. Also, working with the team was excellent. The team will keep you updated and help you with any questions or concerns along the way. I felt my home was marketed excellent. Honest and effective marketing. We were interested in selling our home not just listing it.
We rate our overall experience with Helen Oliveri and the Helen Oliveri Team as excellent. The team was especially patient and understanding during a time that was emotionally tense for us. Thanks for your help! Everyone from Helen to all the office people were very prompt in helping us with whatever we needed. Thanks!
Helen Oliveri is the best! Leave for vacation and house is sold, couldn’t have had any easier process as a seller! Thank you!
Helen is very professional, and has a warm personality. I feel Helen did a great professional job selling our home and keeping the deal together. Helen became a friend of ours during this sales process. She always puts the customer first and understands relationship building. Helen follows the market closely and provides current honest market evaluation and comparison data. She works well with other brokers and attorneys. I would highly recommend her for future real estate business.
Helen was great! Communication is key for me, especially following a bad experience with another realtor several years ago. This was not an issue for Helen and her team, as I was continually informed on the status of our listing with detailed email and telephone updates. The marketing materials did a fantastic job of showcasing the property. We definitely made the right decision to use Helen and her team to sell our home, for all the reasons mentioned above and more.
