Choosing the Right Home for You and Your Family
Home shopping can be an exciting and scary thing. You want to find the perfect home for you and your family, but where do you begin? Purchasing a home may be the largest financial transaction you will ever make. The Group Guaranteed Title in Northern Colorado offers these tips to consider when searching for your dream home.
Leave It to the Professionals
Having a Realtor you trust to help you on your home quest can really make things easier. Realtors are trained to point out any defects in a home. They also can help you to assess if a house meets your buying parameters.
Take Notes and Pictures
Bring a camera when looking at homes. Take lots of pictures of the exterior and interior as well as the surroundings. Be sure to label or note which house you are photographing so it doesn’t get too confusing later. Bring a pen and paper and write down paint colors and design elements. This will help you later to assess how the house fits in with your personal style.
Location, Location, Location
What’s next door to house, proximity to schools, fire stations, parks and shops are all very important things to consider when buying. Think about any commute you may have to work as well.
Be a Critic
Immediately after viewing a house, rate it from one to ten (10 being the best possible score). This initial or “gut” reaction to a home is often your best indicator.
Once you have compiled your list of possible “yes” homes, go back. Walk through all your top choices a second or even third time as you narrow the list further. When it comes to buying a home, you have a lot of choices. When it comes to home selling, buying or refinance closing, you want a comfortable, fast, easy, and predictable experience.
