What advice would you give a buyer trying to purchase a home?
Consult with an experienced REALTOR® about the process of buying a home, especially if it's your first purchase.
There are several Homebuyer programs available that a REALTOR® can help you with. Buying a home is most likely your largest investment. Research finance options, loan programs, demographics, location, home values, schools, parks, proximity to work, etc.
As you think about a location there are several things buyers may overlook especially if quiet enjoyment is preferred. How close is the Airport or Air Force Base? Large planes and jets constantly flying overhead can be a nuisance to some. The same goes for trains. The sound of the horns blowing in the middle of the night may not be preferred. Other items like proximity to amphitheaters or outdoor venues. All of these are things to consider while shopping for the perfect location.
An experienced REALTOR® will be able to help you research the areas that best fit your needs. Especially if you are moving from out of the area.
After you consult with an experienced REALTOR®, reach out to 2 or 3 lenders to get your financing taken care of prior to shopping for your new home. There are different loan programs for specific areas, communities, etc.
