5 Tips for Starting Your Home Search
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1. Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage Before You Start Your Search
One way to show you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search. Even if you are in a market that is not as competitive, understanding your budget will give you the confidence of knowing whether or not your dream home is within your reach.
2. Know the Difference Between Your ‘Must-Haves’ and ‘Would-Like-To-Haves’
Before you start your search, list all the features of a home you would like and then qualify them as ‘must-haves’, ‘should-haves’, or ‘absolute-wish list’ items. This will help keep you focused on what’s most important.
3. Research and Choose a Neighborhood You Want to Live In
Every neighborhood has its own charm. Before you commit to a home based solely on the house itself, the article suggests test-driving the area. Make sure that the area meets your needs for “amenities, commute, school district, etc. and then spend a weekend exploring before you commit.” 4. Pick a House Style You Love and Stick to It
Evaluate your family’s needs and settle on a style of home that would best serve those needs. Just because you’ve narrowed your search to a zip code, doesn’t mean that you need to tour every listing in that zip code.
5. Document Your Home Visits
Once you start touring homes, the features of each individual home will start to blur together. The article suggests keeping your camera handy and documenting what you love and don’t love about each property you visit. Snapping a photo of the ‘for sale’ sign on the way into the property to help keep the listings divided in your photo gallery. ⚡️ ⚡️ ⚡️ Bottom Line ⚡️ ⚡️ ⚡️ In a high-paced, competitive environment, any advantage you can give yourself will help you on your path to buying your dream home.
So, we bought this house sight unseen at a tax auction. Upon getting access we were greeted with fire damage, missing electrical, broken pipes, collapsing ceilings, and a slew over other problems.
This one took A LOT of work, but will make an excellent home and rental for many years to come.
To my building friends: when you go to buy grass seed, make sure the place looks like this... I just love #smallbusinesses and #smalltowns . I drove 45 minutes to this place, which is in my #hometown , because they’ve been good to me in the past. They know exactly what’ll root well this time of year, they’re good, honest folks, and I’d rather support them than Lowe’s. #smalltownamerica
Celebration time for @ashgravesroesler and @xjxbryanx. We closed on the sale of their home yesterday, and they're going to keep doing amazing work for the @peacecorps. 💪 Congrats, guys! #indy#realtor#sold
We’re actually going to build out a new surface over the fireplace for a couple of reasons. One, the brick used is actually kind if ugly under all that soot. Two, we want to do built-ins on either side that look original and there’s not enough depth there for that as it sits. Still debating whether it’ll be a TV or art above the fireplace (which will hopefully be functioning again). Globe lights will most likely go as well. Thoughts? #WestVillageHaus
