It is imperative to find out all of the details before you buy. Everything from choosing an area, to developing your budget, to post purchase costs are important.
Shopping For an Area
I remember shopping for my home and thinking where do I start? I realized that I needed to narrow down an area that I liked. I wanted easy access to the highway. Life as a real estate agent requires a lot of travel time all over the city. I also wanted my family to be comfortable, so being close to local schools was important. Our communities section of our http://www.linoarciteam.com/communities.php site will give you an inside look into a number of different communities in areas all over the city.
Developing Your Budget
Before starting to look at homes, go to your financial institution to walk through your budget. Your financial advisor can be a key resource in outlining what you can afford. Remember to find out about the various interest rate options and what you are pre-approved for.
Buying a home is a big step but don’t forget about the post purchase obligations. Everything from land transfer tax, home inspection, lawyer fees, taxes and first time home buyer refund can all play a large factor in choosing the home of your dreams.
