Buying a Home
Buying a home can be an exciting but also stressful milestone. How big should the house be? Are we planning on extending our family and need to factor in those accommodations? What is our list of must-haves when we see a house? Where do we want the home to be located? Do we want to stay close to where we are currently or are we ok with moving to a different town or different state? What can we realistically afford?
All these questions can easily take the excitement away from an event that should be celebrated. You’re buying a home!
When it comes to purchasing a home, Elite Team Realty follows our simple approach to customer satisfaction: Find out what our customer needs, wants and can afford. Combine all these and it’s a Home Run for you, the customer.
First Time Homebuying
Maybe you’re a first-time homebuyer and not too sure where to even start? At Elite Team Realty we believe that what sets us apart is true teamwork. When buying a home with us, we want to make sure that we point you in the right direction. We put our clients with the best people to give them the best advice when buying a home. Then we follow our proven process that gets the job done.
We will set you up so that you avoid the common home buying mistakes, such as :
- Underestimating all the costs that come with buying a home. Many first time home buyers are aware of there being a down payment. However, most don’t know that there are also home inspection costs, pre-payment costs for insurance, and more.
- Buying at the wrong time. Some first-time homebuyers don’t take the time to research and think through their first purchase. You don’t want to be applying for a loan when you have low credit and end up paying thousands more than if you would’ve waited and fixed your credit. You also don’t want to purchase a home just to move 2 months later, wasting money.
- Not hiring a real estate agent. First-time home buyers tend to be excited when purchasing their home. And rightly so! However, a real estate agent will be able to look at the purchase from an impartial standpoint ensuring that you make the right decision for you and your family.
Find out more common buying mistakes, you can avoid as a first-time home buyer or even a seasoned buyer.
Ok so maybe this isn’t your first go around. But this time you’re thinking about moving to a different state. Not being able to walk through your potential new home prior to moving, is a scary thought. You might be wondering, is there even any difference between buying a home in your current state and somewhere else?
