To help you with your search we have enclosed: | The Property Comparison Worksheet
Important steps to follow when searching for a home
First thing to do is to find the location where you want to buy. Remember this is the key of the game in real estate: Location , location, location because you can't change it.
Buy a home that is similar to the others in the area.
Check the school district. Maybe is not a big deal for you today, but it might be later when you want to sell it someday.
New costruction home may be very costly. Another thing, most builder do not negotiate price.
Be ready to compromise yourself, because even a new home has defects. So make decissions based on what is most important for you.
Focus your search in location, structure of the home, floor plan. Do not pay attention to cosmetic things.
You need to be pre-approved for a bank before you make an offer.
Learn the market, compare the houses in the area, what is selling and what has sold in the area recently.
Always make a home inspection. Your home is your major investment, so protect your self by knowing potential problems .
The main thing to check in the house are: Kitchen, bathrooms, roof, windows and siding.
Do not look at the home decorations, they leave with seller. Look at the home itself.
Look at the rooms sizes. Vacant homes appear larger than what they are.
Land escaping not only make the home looks good but they can save you a lot of money in utility bills.
Buy the best home you can afford, but do not buy the most expensive one. You are better off with a less expensive home than the most expensive for the area.
Check how long the home is being on the market, sellers are willing to negotiate when they have been on the market for a while.
Always be honest with your Real Estate agent. He/She will work hard to find you the best home that match your budget and needs.
Remenber there are houses for any taste. It is all about money $$$. Be realistic you are going to have what you can afford.
