Looking for a home can be an intimidating task filled with many questions. What home do I buy and where? Who do I go to for help? And how do I know if I am making a good purchase?
There’s no one “right way” to go about finding a home. But here are a few tips that may make the process a little easier and should remove some of the anxiety associated with making what is, for most people, their largest single purchase in life.
The first thing to do is determine how much you can afford and what type of home you want or need. This would include the size, number of bedrooms, location and special features such as a garage, fireplace, fence, dishwasher, hot tub etc.
You’ll also want to consider such things a proximity to schools, community centres and play and sports facilities, public transportation, hospitals, libraries and shopping areas and your workplace. These factors are important to you and your family.
Since your home is probably your single largest investment, you’ll want it to be as attractive as possible to purchasers when you’re ready to sell. So keep in mind the features you think will make it attractive to potential buyers in the years ahead.
Whether you are interested in buying, selling – or both – give me a call and let’s get started!!!
