This: A picture is worth a thousand words so bring a camera
when you're on your next house hunting expedition. Using a Polaroid
camera is suggested since you can write notes on what you see when
even a picture is not enough.
2) Keep It
Clean: Cleanliness is next to heaven so clean and fix your ceilings
before showing your home. Buyers will look for cracks and water
damage. If they see something wrong, it'll be hard to convince them
you already fixed the problem so clean, clean, clean.
3) A House
Should Be Your Home: Home is where the heart is so be sure the
community you're thinking of moving to can accommodate your lifestyle.
You may want to check access to schools, shopping areas, public
transportation, libraries, and other areas that are part of your
life. You may also want to find out if the area is peaceful enough
to enjoy your new home.
Can Be Real or Personal: Can you take it with you? Real property
is anything attached to the home or structured and personal property
isn't. It's best to learn more about these differences so you'll
know what to and not to include in your purchase agreement.
Keep It Real: What you see may not be what you get so, while
the internet can offer numerous options, it's good to see your new
home up close and personal.
Your Backyard: Flowers don't only beautify the soul but they
make the yard look nice, too. Take some time to plant some colorful
flowers, repaint the patio, and spiff up your lawn furniture.
it out: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure so get
a qualified home inspection before you buy your home. Otherwise,
you may wind up paying lots of money for unexpected future repairs.
8) The Nose
Knows: The bright colored walls can delight the eye but the
scent of fresh paint can induce suspicions so add a few drops of
real vanilla extract per gallon of paint to neutralize the smell.
9) The Points:
When living long and prospering in your new home, consider discount
point on your new mortgage by paying more money upfront to reduce
your interest rates. These points can be tax deductible and the
seller may be willing to pay for some of them.
Special Rooms: A tidy home is a happy home so pay special attention
to the upkeep of your kitchen and bathrooms. These rooms tell the
story of how well the house was maintained to many buyers.
11) Compare Prices:
Shopping can save you money so research what similar homes in the Area
are going for.
12) Let Your
Agent Do the Walking: Your horn sounds better when someone else
is blowing it so, if you hire a real estate agent, let them show
your home to potential buyers. His/Her experience can make the difference.
13) Don't Worry:
Money isn't everything so, if you don't have the usual 20% for the
down payment, many lenders let you put as low as 3% down. Never let the
amount of money you have determine your value as a home owner.
