Home Buying Season Opener

home buyingSpring is the season for house hunting.  It always has been.   People have been stuck in their homes all winter, seeing too little sun and getting a bit claustrophobic.  It is the time of the year to get out and find a new abode.

Make sure that when you are looking for a new home this spring that you are ready for the season with the appropriate gear.  These items are essential for a successful hunt, and you want to make sure you prepare before going out.  Here are some general home buying tips for those in the hunt.

Research the amount you can afford.  Remember to take into consideration the cost of insurance and taxes, and get yourself pre-approved for a loan.

Bring along a house hunting checklist.  Make a checklist of the things that are important to you and bring it along.  If you are looking at many homes, this will come in handy as you review your options.

Hire a good realtor.  You need someone who knows the market, and can steer you away from things that aren’t right for you.  This will save you time and aggravation. Your realtor is your best source for information.

Wear comfortable shoes.  This is a good idea for all aspects of life.

Be patient, the house that is right for you might not be the first one you see.  Don’t be overanxious and jump at the first property.  Talk to your realtor along the way, and let them know what you like or did not like about a property and what items are most important to you.
