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.
