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.

I can’t say enough about Helen and her team! We had a full price offer on our home within 4 days of listing and her team spent hours with us searching to find a new home that we loved in short order. We had delays on our sale and very difficult (this may be the understatement of the century) sellers for our new home and she and her team were fabulous. From dealing with low appraisals, to difficult negotiations, to following up hourly (literally) with our buyers’ lender when they had delays, her …
Helen is very professional, honest, and her experience shows. I was very impressed with the number of online and print resources created quickly in order to market the house in a timely manner. I also liked the updates of views from the various websites and the online portal so I could track showings and feedback. I’m sure your internal networking also did a lot for moving this property quickly. It was evident in the number of showings that people were seeing the information! Thank you for …
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!
Dear HELEN, I just want to thank HELEN OLIVERI, your company is #1. I trust you, HELEN you are the BEST. Thank you again for everything.
Helen was professional and knowledgeable in her field. Well prepared for first meeting. Helen was warm & friendly. Always kept me really informed. Her team was knowledgeable, supportive and responded quickly to all requests. The team kept me informed through every step of the process. I would highly recommend Helen and her team. They were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, easily accessible and supportive throughout the entire process.
Everyone on Helen’s team works well together and with the client to accomplish the objective – sell houses! I feel my home was marketed excellent and the property sold so quickly. I rate my experience with Helen Oliveri and The Helen Oliveri Team just outstanding. At the end of the day, our house had been on the market for a year with a different agent and had not been sold. The house sold in 28 days after I listed it with Helen and that is what it is all about.
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.
My sale was not your average sale. I had a number of extenuating circumstances that made my deal difficult. Helen dealt with those circumstances and brought the deal to a successful close. I locked myself out of my house on two occasions and Helen’s team was able to “beam” a code to the lock box and on a real time basis get me access. My overall experience with Helen Oliveri and the Helen Oliveri Team was excellent. We sold at 94% of the asking price.
Helen is the consummate professional, working tirelessly for her customers, offering objective advice, available 24/7, and with an extensive knowledge of the real estate market. We received two offers in 2 days–need I say more? Helen is “the best of the best”, combining outstanding knowledge of the real estate market, fantastic instincts about negotiation strategy, and an ever-present professional demeanor. Helen has our highest recommendations!
Helen was great during the whole sale process. Every time I would call she would pick up ready to talk about anything. I have never experienced this level of service from a real estate agent. Helen is also very honest, she knows what needs to get done to sell a home. Our home was sold after 8 days of being on the market, even with being an interior town home unit which are not in high demand right now. Want your home SOLD? Talk to Helen. Thanks Helen!
