Puzzled About Buying A Home? Easy Tips On Home Buying

Puzzle

 

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.  Once you have contacted me, your  Dallas Realtor Lisa Von Domek, we will review the following steps:

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.

Hire a good agent and listen to the advice and options that you are given

HI Lisa, this is a great plan. I enjoy working with first time home buyers and leading the way.

Good morning Lisa.  My wife and I agree on almost everything.  That is except for a plan.  I like plans as it gives me a road-path to accomplish my goal.  My wife on the other hand just goes around freestyle.  It has started let's say a lot of interesting conversations.

I tell first timers that even though the lender does not have to declare fiduciary duty in writing, they should be the ones more in your corner than anyone else.

Lisa those are two very important questions in the home buying process.  And the sooner a buyer gets pre-qualified the less time they will waist looking at properties they will not qualify to buy and reduce a lot of the stress.
