Buying a house marks a new beginning. How do you know that you’re getting your dream house and not straining your credit limit,
Get yourself a “pre-approved” certificate from a lender. This certificate gives the seller the assurance that you have enough money to buy their property. Securing a Pre-Approved certificate would range from a few days to a few weeks depending on the status if the request. But it’s worth the trouble of waiting. It increases the chances of you getting the best deal in the market.
Selling up a property if you have one before acquiring a new one would also help. It is because paying for the property upfront could get you into a great deal of getting a discount. It is because some property owners think of either letting a prospective buyer who would buy the property at once or waiting for a buyer to sell his present property before buying the new one. And in most cases, the seller would not pass up on the chance on having their property bought up at once.
Know what you want. It is always knowing what you wanted matters. Sticking to these is the key of successfully acquiring your dream house. Upon seeing different houses, you will see a whole new picture of everything. But do you want these in the first place, At the on set, you may seem enamored by the beautifully manicured lawns of a certain estate but attached to it is a responsibility of maintenance. More so if you’re not really into gardening. It would only cost you more to pay for someone to look after it or suffer the sight of drying lawn. Stick to the basics and what you really have planned on buying.
Don’t be misled by advertisements. Advertisements only contain positive things about a property. That is why it’s called an advertisement. Many things are left out in putting up an ad. It would not say that crime rates have been high recently or the neighborhood is plagued by gangsters. Check out the house itself. Does it suit your needs, Is it well ventilated, Is the house well-built, It would be your haven for a number of years so be sure that the house would be comfortable to the occupant.
Consider the resale value of the estate. Things change. Most likely there will come a time that you will have to sell your home. Know how long it will take to sell the estate for the future. Knowing how long the “for sale” sign has been sitting by the front yard would give you enough knowledge about the market pacing.
