Buyers - First Three Steps before you start your home search.

 Home Buyers: follow these three steps to save time and potentially a great deal of money when looking for a new home:
1. Find a qualified buyers representative - this professional will be your trusted advisor, valuable guide and a resource through the process of purchasing a new home –
2. Choose a qualified mortgage representative – a reputable and knowledgeable consultant who will help you assess your credit and finances and prepare a pre- approval, find the right mortgage and explain financing options
3. Assess your wants and needs – At the beginning you may not know all that is truly important to you, start small with the things you know and ask your buyers representative for help and guidance
Some important questions you may wish to ask yourself at this time: what kind of a neighborhood do you wish to be in? Are schools important to you? (home page of this blog) Do you wish to be in a community or do you prefer a secluded, private setting? Do you know how far are you willing to travel to work? Are you familiar with the all areas? Is it important to be close to shopping and major routes, is transportation important to you? More about this to follow shortly.
Additional important questions: Ideal price range, type of neighborhood, style of a home, type of a home ( are you open to all - condo / flat, townhome, twin home in some areas called duplex or a single/detached home), age of the house, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, lot size… than add to it as you go along items such as: basement or a garage, do you need an eat-in kitchen or a separate dining room, finishes basement, family room, yard, porch or a deck…? Rate these items from 1-10.
For a great free form with no obligation email me. Best of luck in your home search.
