When you start looking for a home, there are so many things to consider and many times people don’t really take the time to do so! A professional real estate agent is crucial when hunting for your new home. We at the Christy Buck Team love helping buyers find their dream home and have compiled a small list of “mistakes” people make while on the hunt for their new home.
- Not knowing what you can afford to purchase- When you fall in love with a home, it’s hard to find anything else you will want and you will compare it to every other home you see. However, if you can’t afford the home, you are setting yourself up for heartbreak! Make sure to take with a mortgage lender (we have a few we can refer you to) and get pre-approved so you know exactly what your budget is!!
- Not shopping around- Make sure you don’t compromise. You still want to make sure the area is one you can see your family living in. You will also want to see other homes and the different options you can find as far as floor plans, etc. Make sure you find homes that check off the MOST important items on your “dream home” list!
- Not using an agent- We aren’t just saying this because we are in the business! You will want your own agent to represent you or you and your family throughout the process. The listing agent will have the sellers best interest at heart and you will need someone on YOUR side! The agent is held to an ethical standard to make sure they represent you well and help you with advice along the way!
