Tips To Buying A Home


From reviewing your financial status to the final walk-through just before you close on the home, the following article provides nine home buying tips that you want to check out and include in your home buying process.
Whether it's your first time buying a home or not, you should

familiarize yourself with the whole mortgage process. Numerous mortgage lenders will assist you in the process of acquiring a pre-qualified and pre-approved home buying application. Of course, your mortgage qualifications will be required by your agent to strengthen your deal in finding and buying a home.

The followings are some things to consider when buying a home:

1. Money
First of all, before buying a home, consider your financial status. Check
your credit situation by getting hold of your most recent credit report at
the credit center. You should know exactly how much money you have and how
much you can afford to spend on a home.

2. Needs vs Wants
Do not confuse between needs and wants when you can have both. Upon gathering
information in buying a home, take into consideration the different types
of houses available and decide what you want from what is offered.

3. The Right Agent
If you believe in the comfort and rewards of buying a home, you will need
to trust the agent who will do the work for you. In finding a reliable agent
you will need to look at many sources of information to determine "who
represents what". It is always best to compare experiences, backgrounds
and referrals of reputable people.

4. Time
Do not expect to find a great home tomorrow if you've only begun your search
today. Buying a home is like working on a school project. It needs ample time.
If you think you've gathered enough information and resources within your
time table, so be it.

5. Cue Cards
You don't want to forget even a single detail about the home you've selected,
right? Why not keep little cue cards where the 'plus and minus' on each home
or property you've seen is listed and recorded.

6. Points and Plus
Learn how to bargain and get the best possible deal.

7. Word Confusion
Needless to say, when you buy a home you should familiarize yourself with
the terms and words used during the dealing and negotiating with your agent
and contractor. Also, try to keep a list of the questions you have that need
further clarification.

8. Safety and Security
Be sure to get homeowner's insurance. It may seem like a lifetime expense,
but it will get you continued savings in the long run.

9. Final Check
Do a final inspection or walk-through of the house before settlement and before
the contract is processed.

Please do consider the above checklists as helpful factors when you to decide to buy a home. Plan ahead and avoid the common mistakes that most home buyers make.
