Buying a Home

Looking for a new home can seem overwhelming at first. There are so many things to think about, so many choices, and often not enough time.

A small investment of time and effort right at the start can pay tremendous dividends. Take the time to organize your thoughts and think seriously about what sort of home you want before you start looking. It will simplify the process, save you time, and help lead you to the right home for you.

Answer these important questions, and then together we will organize your search:

  • Where do I want to live? (community/general area)
  • How much should I expect to spend on purchasing a home?
  • Are schools a factor?
  • Do I want an older home or a newer one?
  • What style of home do I prefer? (ranch, colonial, split-level, multi-level, town home, condominium, multi-family, bungalow, other)
  • How much renovation and remodeling am I willing to do?
  • Is being close to public transportation important?
  • Do I have special physical requirements, such as wheel chair access?
  • Do I have pets to consider?
  • What sort of lot would I like? (small yard, large yard, fenced, garage, patio/deck, mature area)
  • How many bedrooms do I need? How many would I like to have?
  • How many bathrooms do I need? How many would I like to have?
  • How big of a house do I want? How many rooms? How many square feet?
  • What features are important? (air conditioning, carpeting, ceramic tile floors, hardwood floors, eat-in kitchen, separate dining room, formal living room, family room, den, library, basement, separate laundry room, fireplace, workshop, garage size.)
  • When do I want to move in?

Another bonus is the fact that you will also be protected against interest rate increases while you look for your new home. To avoid disappointment (and a lot of wasted time and effort) make sure that your finances are in place as soon as possible. A pre-approved mortgage can be easily obtained and saves you time and energy when placing an offer. With a pre-approved mortgage, you can shop with freedom, confidence and security because you know the money will be there to purchase the home you choose.
