Tips Most Home Buyers Don’t Consider

Think long-term and think re-sale: Are you planning to have kids? Will you be taking care of elderly relatives? You might be planning to live in your first home for only a few years.

Make a list of items to check: Home-buying is an emotional process. Ideally, you should set aside all your emotions when evaluating a house.

Look at ALL the expenses when you are budgeting for the house: When budgeting for the house, don’t stop with principal, interest, taxes and insurance; add in utilities, cost of commuting and upgrades.

Ask for the homeowners association contract before you make a decision: Think long term plan.
