3 Reasons to Think Twice (and 3 Reasons to GO AHEAD!)

3-reasons-to-think-twice-13-reasons-to-think-twice-2

  1. It’s Too Expensive
  2. The Location Isn’t What You Want
  3. You’re Unsure About Your Future Income

 

 

It’s Too Expensive: If it’s too expensive for your budget, that’s one thing. But you shouldn’t pay for something that’s overpriced relative to other nearby homes.

The Location Isn’t What You Want: The saying is true: you can change the house, but you can’t change the neighborhood.

You’re Unsure About Your Future Income: You should feel confident in your job security, or that you have savings needed to handle a temporary interruption in income.

3-reasons-to-think-twice-3

 

  1. It’s The Home You Judge Others Against
  2. You Can See Yourself Living There
  3. It’s Got “Good Bones”

 

 

It’s The Home You Judge Others Against:  If you find yourself referring to one specific house even when you’re visiting others, it may be a sign.

You Can See Yourself Living There: You already have the living room furniture laid out in your mind – and it fits!

It’s Got “Good Bones”: Sure, maybe the wallpaper isn’t perfect, but things like light fixtures and carpet are easily customized to suit your style.

6 Hidden Costs Of Home Ownership

6-hidden-costs

  1. Furniture and Décor: This is especially true if you’re sizing up!
  2. Unexpected repairs: Disclosures and home warranties can help with this in the first year, but things may pop up after that.
  3. Basic Maintenance: From pest control to carpet cleaning, this can add up each year.
  4. Yard Maintenance: If you don’t already have them, you may need a mower, an edger, basic garden tools, and more – or money to hire a gardener.
  5. Utilities: Check local rates for water, electricity, gas, garbage, cable, and other services you use. As your agent, we can help you find these resources.
  6. Settling In: You may need to purchase things like: shower curtains or cleaning supplies during the first few weeks in the home. And probably more take-out dinners and delivery pizza than usual!

the-best-defense-is-a-good-offense“The best defense is a good offense”is an adage that has been applied to many fields of endeavor, and is also true when preparing to buy a new home! As your agents, we can help you understand the added costs of home ownership to help you target a realistic price range.

4 Reasons to Google That Address

  1. four-reasons-to-google-that-addressFind Crime Reports And Data For Your Home And Environs
  2. To See The Maps
  3. To See If Megan’s Law Registrants Live Nearby
  4. To Learn About What’s Coming To The Neighborhood

downward-trend-imageFind Crime Reports And Data For Your Home And Environs: A search for an address or city and “crime reports” is most likely to turn up your local police or sheriff’s crime map or a list of local happenings. You’ll want to check if the home’s address is on any concerning lists, and see what the broader crime trends are like around the home, too.

To See The Maps:  Take a virtual walk around the block with Google’s Street View  and get a better sense of the neighborhood – especially if you’re relocating to a new place. And a satellite map can be really useful to get a broader lay of the land.

To See If Megan’s Law Registrants Live Nearby: Safety First. Megan’s Law requires law-enforcement authorities to make information available to the public concerning registered sex offenders in their neighborhoods. Googling your address and “Megan’s Law” will turn up a quick list of nearby registrants. Alarmism isn’t a good look, but this is information you should have.

To Learn About What’s Coming To The Neighborhood: Searching for the address,upcoming_events_icon neighborhood name, and city/state can also help you locate permit applications – particularly true for permits that require environmental or neighbor feedback. This way, you can know in advance about a new coffee shop coming in around the corner, or a large multi-year building project happening down the street.

Moderation Is Key

6 Insider Tips To Make The Most Of Open Houses For Buyers

six-insider-tips-to-make-the-most-of-open-houses

  1. Open Everything
  2. Take the Takeaways
  3. Take Pictures and Notes
  4. Check Out the Neighborhood
  5. Talk to the Seller’s Agent
  6. Take Your Agent

 

Open Everything: From doors to cabinet drawers, it’s the only way to get an accurate sense of storage – and to make sure you don’t miss a room!

Take The Takeaways: That extra paper may seem like a waste, but once you’ve seen more than a few houses, you’ll need something to help you keep  them straight.

Take Pictures And Notes: Again, it’s easy to forget what you saw where. The provided takeaways are a great start, but help yourself remember what you do – and don’t – like about a place.

Check Out The Neighborhood: Spend some time walking around the house. Are there close neighbors? What’s the traffic like? Remember, you don’t just buy a house – it’s the whole neighborhood.

Talk To The Seller’s Agent: Ask about recent updates and see if they’ve done any inspections yet. Find out if the seller has a timeline. The more you know about their needs, the more easily you can work around them – and put together a tempting offer if you love the home.

Take Your Agent: Some buyers may want  to check out places themselves, but it can be helpful to have your agent along for the ride. It helps us get a better sense of what you’re looking for, and we can get helpful insights from the seller’s agent if you’re interested.

  1. 4-tips-to-see-if-a-neighborhood-is-right-for-youCheck Out The Basic Stats
  2. See What The Neighbors Are Doing
  3. Learn The Traffic Patterns

Check Out The Basic Stats: Crime data, both the volume of crime and the types of crime, and school performance data are important when thinking about what’s best for your family.

See What The Neighbors Are Doing: Get a sense of local activities, and see if it looks like a place with frequent block-parties or if people may keep more to themselves.

Learn The Traffic Patterns: Find out if there are frequent jams, or if a nearby farmers’ market limits road access during weekends.

Look For Local Amenities: Make sure you explore the area to find things that matter to you, like local coffee shops or parks.
