Buying a Home

Build a Plan of Action and Get Ready

Buying a home will probably rank as one of the biggest personal investments one can make. Being organized and in control will contribute significantly to getting the best home deal possible with the least amount of stress. It’s important to anticipate the steps required to successfully achieve your housing goal and to build a plan of action that gets you there.

Before you can build a plan of action, take the time to lay the groundwork for your decision-making process.

First, ask yourself how much you can afford to pay for a home. If you’re not sure on the price range, find a lender and get pre-approved. Pre-approval will let you know how much you can afford, allowing you to look for homes in your price range. Getting pre-approved also helps you to alleviate some of the anxieties that come with home buying. You know exactly what you qualify for and at what rate, you know how large your monthly mortgage payments will be, and you know how much you will have for a down payment. Once you are pre-approved, you avoid the frustration of finding homes that you think are perfect, but are not in your price range.

Second, ask yourself where you want to live and what the best location for you and/or your family is. Things to consider:

  • convenience for all family members
  • proximity to work, school
  • crime rate of neighborhood
  • local transportation
  • types of homes in neighborhood, for example condos, town homes, co-ops, newly constructed homes etc.

Third, find a buyer agent that is knowledgeable and will represent your interests in buying a home. They will help you find out are what are similar homes in the neighborhood selling for and how much you should offer. Contact one of our buyer agents below, to have professional representation in your purchase.  This service is free to you.  The seller most often offers to pay the buyers agent.

From Our Clients

"Terri Granger did a wonderful job in promoting and selling my house. She staged it after recommending some improvements we should do to make the home more updated, such as painting and replacing carpets. We received multiple offers. Terri is very reliable and good with ongoing communication. I would recommend Terri to anyone selling their home!
