Let us help you every step of the way.
When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, the Dan Morris Real Estate Team will make the process of purchasing a home:
With our preparation help:
sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer
you can locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications faster
We will also help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
We are always familiar with the current homes on the market, and we know neighborhood values well, so we can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home?
To stop paying rent?
To start building equity?
To have a place of your own?
To raise a family?
To entertain business associates?
To move up to a bigger house?
Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves". Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific.
Area (city, suburban neighborhood)
Community (north, south, east, or west side)
Neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new)
A particular school zone
Community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment
How many minutes you are willing to commute to work
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Don't worry if this seems scary. When you contact us, we will give you my Home Selection Checklist absolutely FREE.
