When buying a home, you are confronted with two important variables, finding the right house and paying the right price. To facilitate the process as much as possible, keep the following tips in mind:

  1. Get organized before you start. Create 2 lists, one with what you desire in a home and the other with what is essential. For example, you know that you desire a swimming pool, but a large backyard is non-negotiable. Prioritize each list prior to looking at houses to be organized for your house search.  

  2. Shop for a mortgage before shopping for the house. To let the sellers know that you are a serious house hunter, get a pre-approval loan. In addition, a pre-approval loan lets you know how much you can spend.

  3. Be sure that your real estate agent knows what you are looking for. Share the lists you’ve created detailing your desires and non-negotiables. This will enable the agent to work on your behalf to find the best house that meets your criteria.

  4. Consider your ideal location. Choosing the correct location is the most important factor. The value of your home is dependent on the other homes in the neighborhood. Use your realtor for assistance in choosing the neighborhood most beneficial to you and within your budget.
