Useful Tips For House Hunting
Looking for a new home? Use these 6 tips to help make your house hunting experience enjoyable
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
How far is the commute? How good are the schools, hospitals, and local services? Keep these questions in mind as you consider areas where you might purchase a home.
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
Take the time to write down the home features you must have, the ones you’d like to have, and others you absolutely do not want.
GET THE POWER OF PRE-APPROVAL
A pre-qualification letter from a mortgage lender tells you how much you’re qualified to borrow and allows you to shop for homes with confidence.
WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHES & SHOES
House-hunting can be exhausting, especially when touring a dozen homes in one day. Dressing for comfort can make looking at the last home as pleasant as the first.
BE READY TO MAKE AN OFFER
You should walk into each home prepared to make an offer. If you fall in love with a home on the spot, be ready to make a move.
BREATHE & GET SOME PERSPECTIVE
Buying a home is a life-changing event. But it’s not worth driving yourself, or your family, crazy. Trust us. We’ve done this before.
