House Hunting Tips!

Posted by: najirashid on Friday, November 14th, 2014

Knowing how much house you can afford is just a starting place for your search. You also need to answer the following questions to narrow down your options to those that are most relevant to you.

1. How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need?

2. Do you want a new home or would you prefer an older one?

3. Are there special features you must have?

4. Is the school district a factor for you?

5. Do you want to be close to a shopping center?

6. Is commuting to work an issue? If so, how far are you willing to drive?

7. Do you have a style of home preference?

Searching for a home can be overwhelming, but here are a few tips to make it a bit easier;

* Take a notepad with you. Save each home listing sheet.

* Limit the homes you look at in each session to five so you can focus on the details. ( some buyers are able to view more homes in one session and keep good records).

* Take a picture of the homes that appeal to you so you can remember their features). Use discretion when taking photos of sellers properties that you don’t include their personal or private items.

* Make sure you get all your questions answered before making an offer.
