What you need to know when buying a home:
First things first: examine your income and resources to create an accurate budget. From there, we can help you get pre-qualified to preview what homes are truly within your budget.
Understand the true cost of home ownership:
Taxes, insurance, closing costs and home maintenance should all be taken into consideration. Pre-approval is based on information you supply concerning your income, employment, cash flow and other factors. This is an essential step to ensure that you are creditworthy to obtain a mortgage – and prevent any disappointing surprises.
Know where you would like to live. What factors matter most? Schools? Proximity to work? Do you want to live near the beach, or on a golf course? Start by asking yourself those questions first.
Know what kind of home you are looking to buy. Will a colonial 2 story home fit your needs? Or do you prefer single level living? Do you want new construction, or are you willing to make updates?
If you’re thinking of buying a new construction home, be sure to obtain thorough information about the builder to confirm their quality of work.
Westpark Realty will help you sell your home in the shortest amount of time possible, with the least amount of stress feasible. We will be there every step of the way, marketing your home, negotiating the best possible price for you, coordinating the details of your closing, and even counseling you on maximizing your home’s best features in preparation for sale. We’ve been selling homes in this area since 1984, trust that we know what to look for and what to utilize in selling your home at an attractive rate.
When selling your home it is important to remember to:
Make any necessary repairs. Make sure doors don’t stick and that there are no obvious damages, like broken window panes or damaged siding. Consider applying fresh paint, and be sure to eliminate any unnecessary clutter. Consider home staging, which is something we are happy to assist with, that can show off your space in new and attractive ways. For years, home builders have been using staging by adding very deliberate finishing touches that will give your home a more aesthetic and emotional appeal.
If your kitchen or bathrooms need to be updated, it may be in your best interest to offer an incentive to any prospective buyers, rather than doing the expensive and timely updates yourself. This will ensure you save necessary resources for your new home.
Take time to say goodbye to your existing home. This home has given you shelter and comfort, and you have a lot of memories here. But now it is time for you to look at your former home as a piece of property and an investment that has served you well. And we promise that it will soon serve the new owners, just as well.
