In our years of experience, we have discovered that all successful home buyers share three common characteristics. Today we want to share those with you, in case you are thinking of buying a new home in the future!
1. Be sure to know your numbers - Know, in advance, what you are comfortable paying monthly toward your new home. Be sure to factor in taxes, homeowner's insurance, and any applicable HOA fees.
2. Know what you want - be sure to sit down with all decision makers (cosigners, spouses, parents, etc) to be sure everyone is on the same page with what you are looking for in your new home.
3. Know your MARKET - This one is very important. As a buyer, you cannot rely just on what you hear in the national real estate news. Your local neighborhood could be experiencing a vastly different real estate market than the national news is reporting.
