Buyers Tips

The Home you want

Before you begin to shop for a house, you need to visualize the home that best suits you. Consider what type of home you would like to live in. Each comes with their own pros and cons, but moving beyond the type of structure you’d like to live in will make selecting a specific one much simpler. There are several types of residential property to choose from:

  • Single-family Homes
  • Townhomes
  • Condominiums
  • Multi-family Buildings

Find Out How Much House You Can Afford


Get an idea of what lenders are willing to lend you to make a purchase. You may believe that $500,000 home is within your budget for a new home but lenders may only think your good for $350,000 depending om a number factors. Lenders consider things such as your monthly income, how much debt you have and how long you have been working at your current job. On the other hand, a bank could loan you more than you can pay for. Check out the total cost of a home. That includes the mortgage payment, the property taxes in the neighborhood you chose, the total insurance costs, total closing costs, and how much you intend on spending in maintenance and improvements.

Find Desirable Features, Seek Out Savings

The features available vary from home to home. Make a list of desirables. Include things like neighborhood and size, the layout of rooms and bathrooms, and trivial things like working appliances in the kitchen. Consider your budget. Find desirable features but also seek out savings.  You deserve to have the home that fit your desires and circumstances most closely. No matter what sort of home you choose, you can always find savings on the purchase price by choosing a fixer-upper. Though the amount of time, equity and sweat poured into making improvements to a fixer-upper may be more than you expected.
