When buying a home in today’s market there are certain things that every home buyer should be aware of to ensure a smooth process.

  • Homes hit the market everyday. It’s important not to become discouraged if you don’t find your dream home right off the bat. There are constantly new homes hitting the market. Be patient and a home that is just right for you will become available.
  • Being pre-approved gives home buyers much more leverage in the negotiation process. Nothing is more devastating to a new home buyer than finding the perfect home only to find out they can’t get a loan for the home. By getting pre-approved before you start the home search you can be taken much more seriously a well as know the price range you are looking for.
  • Don’t change your financial situation during the home buying process. Even though you are pre-approved that does not mean your loan is complete. Lenders can deny your loan if your financial situations changes before closing. Don’t make big purchases or acquire a lot of debt before the closing on your home is complete.
  • Be available when your new home is being inspected. If you are at the home while a home inspection is going on you can learn value information not only about the current condition of your home, but also how to maintain the home once it becomes yours.
  • Negotiations are a give and take. Remember when you have found a potential home both you and the seller are trying to get the best deal. When negotiating it is important to understand what each party really needs and wants so a deal can be made. The Alvin Steinberg Team can help you with the negotiation process and make sure you are being treated fairly and not giving up to much.
