When you start thinking about buying a home, you’re likely to feel
excited and confident, but also anxious at the same time. Don’t
worry, it’s normal. Buying home is a big decision. There is so much
to understand – How much can I afford? What is the right price range
for my budget? Who can help me find the perfect home and guide me
through the negotiating process?
It is important to review your personal finances and budget.
Consider the costs that go into buying a home such as a down payment
and closing costs.
The next thing to consider is “Why Should I Buy?” There are many
reasons why buying makes sense:
Owning a home
can cost the same as renting
You can build
You may be
able to deduct the interest on your home loan from your federal
and sometimes state income taxes
You may be
able to use your equity as an asset to qualify for loans & other
types of credit
Owning a home
can be an excellent investment over time
The next step is
generally meeting with a mortgage consultant to get pre-qualified-
even before you start your home search. Your mortgage advisor will
help you determine what you can afford. Buying a home is a process
of constantly balancing the dream and the reality. With so many loan
options available, your mortgage consultant will strive to
understand and meet your financial objectives and assist with
finding the right product fit for you. There are many products
available that allow for 100% financing.
Once your price range has been established and you have been
pre-approved, your real estate agent will guide you through the
selection and purchase process.
It is crucial to have an agent represent you for a number of
reasons. As a rule, your agent will have a thorough knowledge of the
local market to not only find exactly what you are looking for, but
most importantly to ensure you pay market value for that property.
Real estate agents have first hand access to properties as they
become available. They will assist you in organizing showings,
comparing properties and establishing value, researching
information, drawing up the purchase agreement, and negotiating your
offer. Agents maintain important contacts like home inspectors,
contractors and closing attorneys to help coordinate a smooth
closing process. Your agent will work with you from beginning to
end, so they are in a great position to answer questions, to advise
you and to help you keep up with the details along the way.
Remember, buyer representation is FREE! You protect your investment
at no cost to you.
With careful planning and by surrounding yourself with a team of
“experts,” you feel
confident and comfortable when approaching the closing table. Good
real estate agents and mortgage consultants are interested in
developing life-long relationships. Good luck!!
