Purchasing Tips For Your Next Home
When I work with buyers, often they are on a mission. Their mission: to fulfill their wants and needs list. Once they have found a home, they tend to overlook or disregard important factors that could impact their ultimate decision, or contribute to buyers' remorse. There are plenty of homes on the market, in just about every city across the nation. With the swelled inventory, buyers have a choice. What will you consider when purchasing your next home? Of course you have your list of must haves such as size, bedrooms, or other personally important features. But once you have found the home(s) meeting your criteria, what next?
Here are a few tips of other factors to consider before signing the paperwork.
Even if this is your dream home...statistics prove that most homeowners will only occupy their home for 5-7 years. Many will relocate sooner. Always try to consider the majority of buyers; what other buyers would like or dislike about a property. Although you are comfortable with particular aspects of the property that could be difficult or impossible to change, if that aspect would not be a popular choice among other buyers you may create resale problems for yourself. Real estate is an investment, and done properly it can offer a nice return. If important factors are overlooked, it can become another home on the inventory that is impossible to sell, resulting in homeowner hardship.
