14 Real Estate Buyer Tips

  1. Get pre-approved for a mortgage: This will give you an idea of how much home you can afford and will make you a more attractive candidate to sellers.
  2. Research the market: Look at home prices, property taxes, and crime rates in the areas you’re interested in.
  3. Find a good real estate agent: A good agent will be able to guide you through the process and help you find homes that meet your needs.
  4. Make a list of must-haves and nice-to-haves: Determine what features are essential for you in a home and which one you can live without.
  5. Be prepared to move quickly: Once you find the right home, be prepared to make an offer and move forward with the buying process quickly.
  6. Be prepared to negotiate: Be ready to negotiate on price, closing costs, and other terms of the sale.
  7. Get a home inspection: Before you close on a home, make sure to have it inspected by a professional to identify any potential issues.
  8. Be realistic: Be realistic about your budget and your needs, and remember that buying a home is a long-term commitment.
  9. Consider the future: Think about how your lifestyle may change in the future and how that may affect your home buying decision.
  10. Take a close look at the neighborhood: Consider the proximity of schools, public transport, shopping centers, parks, and other amenities.
  11. Look beyond the aesthetics: Don’t get too caught up in how a home looks, focus on its overall condition and potential for upgrades.
  12. Get a home warranty: A home warranty can provide peace of mind by covering the cost of repairs to certain home systems and appliances.
  13. You can’t time the market.  Buy and sale when the need arises.  Over the past 65 years, real estate has appreciated 6% on average YoY.
  14. Make sure you are aware if properties are in MUD’s, or PID’s.  They could increase your tax rate.
