Buying a Home Priority List

1608 You don’t need us to tell you that buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions you will make.  The stakes rise considerably when we are talking about buying a luxury home where a mistake could cost the buyer millions of dollars.

What should you look for when buying a home?  Really, the answer to that question is very subjective.  You have all heard the old saying “one man’s home is another man’s castle.”  This is true in real estate.  We all have different tastes, and we all have different home qualities that we consider important. However, there are some basic qualities that everyone should consider.

LOCATION

You can remodel, you can change the landscaping, and you can buy new furniture and paint, but you can’t change the location of that new home.  Once you buy you are there, and there you will be until you sell, so location is the number one consideration when buying a home.  Is it in a good neighborhood?  Is it convenient?  Is it close to work, to schools, and to amenities?  Is the resale value of other homes in that area stable?

AMENITIES

This is, of course, purely subjective in nature. What are you looking for in a home? Do you want a swimming pool? Do you want privacy and acreage? Do you need room for entertaining?  When making a financial investment of this size, don’t rush into it, but rather shop around until you find a home that has exactly what you are looking for.

IS IT A FAIR PRICE

The worst thing any buyer can do is rush this decision.  You may find the “perfect” home, but it may be priced too high.  A home buyer needs to be patient.  Make sure all inspections are done, and make sure the market can support the asking price for that home.

That in no way is a complete list, but we at Sportsrelocation.com consider these the three most important considerations when buying a new home.
