Buying a new home can arguably be the most exciting time in a young married couple’s life. There are so many things to consider from location to square footage to neighborhood demographics to local school systems. Your Real Estate Agent and Realtor are able to provide you with neighborhood information and will be able to effectively narrow your search down to a modest handful of 10 or less properties.
When you have a smaller number of comparable properties, you are able to make a manageable list of â€œprosâ€ and â€œconsâ€ of each listing. When there are 20, 30, 50 or more properties on your comparables list, all information seems to run together and it is completely overwhelming to base search on just number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage. If you have a small handful of comparables that have the desired number of bedrooms and bathrooms, you are able to then simplify based on number of houses in the subdivision, number of neighbors within a mile radius or the presence or lack of homeowner’s association dues. There are even advanced tools in place to locate shopping areas.
When you place your trust in a Real Estate Agent or Realtor, you are handing over all the hard work to them and it frees your time and energy up for deciding whether to keep your current furniture or buy brand new and to gather items for your moving sale. Your Agent will also help set up a home inspection, arrange logistics with your mortgage lender and closing specialists and will even help arrange connection or moving of your home utilities.
There is no reason that you should have to â€œgo it aloneâ€ and forge ahead into the homebuying experience alone. Contact your local Realtor or Real Estate Agent today!
