Buyers' Guide 

A Quick Buyer 101 Page for Home Buying

Early Spring 2014 Tip: Curb appeal is important for any home you are considering for purchase, but be sure your "Must Have" list incorporates those important aspects of the home that cannot be easily changed like surrounding neighborhood/community, schools and access to public resources.

In the market for a new home? Here are some common questions I get from clients as they begin their search for their next home. If you have any questions you would like to ask, click here to contact me immediately. 

1. What are the advantages of using a real estate agent to help me buy a home?

Buying a home is certainly one of the most rewarding experiences any of us will ever have. It’s also one of the most challenging. If you’re buying for the first time, the process may seem overwhelming. And even if you've been through it several times, every move is different, and presents new challenges. So one clear advantage of enlisting the help of an agent is that you don’t have to “go it alone.” A Buyers Agent looks out for your best interest in the transaction. A good agent has the training, the know-how, and the experience to help you through each step of the process, and make the process of finding, buying and moving into your new home as smooth, quick, and enjoyable as possible. Another advantage is that an agent represents a valuable source of information about market trends, communities and neighborhoods, and especially, homes for sale throughout the area. Remember, not every home seller runs an ad in the local paper or puts a sign up in the yard. In fact, many homes actually sell before there is ever a need to advertise them. An agent offers you market expertise augmented by access to complete, regularly updated information about every home listed by area agents through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). As you’ll see in the following several questions, professional expertise and services can be of considerable help throughout the buying process.

2. What should I think about when I am deciding which community I want to live in? 

Good city services, nice parks and playground facilities, convenient shopping and transportation, a track record of sound development and good planning — these are just a few considerations that are important to many people when they choose a community in which to live. As for individual neighborhoods within a village or city, there is no better source of information than your real estate agent. Agents know the people and the communities they serve, and chances are they can help you find a neighborhood that really fits your family’s needs.

3. When I start visiting homes, what should I be looking for the first time through? 

The house you ultimately choose to call home will play a major role in your family’s life. A home can be an excellent investment, but more importantly, it should fit the way you really live, with spaces and features that appeal to everyone in the family. As you look at each home, pay close attention to these important considerations: Is there enough room for you now, and in the near future? Is the home’s floor plan right for your family? Is there enough storage space? Will you have to replace the appliances? Is the yard the size that you want? Are there enough bathrooms? How much maintenance and/or decorating will you need to do right away? Later? Will your present furniture work in this home?
