FOR PHOENIX HOME BUYERS
Congratulations! You have decided to purchase a home, or are thinking about buying one. You’ll be joining the ranks of hundreds of families who realize that home ownership offers a number of benefits that include building equity, saving for the future, and creating a comfortable, unique and positive environment for your family.
Although owning a home is a smart investment, shopping for a new home can be an emotional experience. It’s also time consuming and comes with a myriad of details that are important to be aware of. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying a new home and overlook some of those important items.
Tom Henschen and Associates Real Estate is here to help you avoid some of these common errors. By having a systematic plan before you shop, you’ll be sure to avoid these costly errors. Here are some tips on making the most of your home purchase:
Possibly the MOST critical factor when you’re selling your home is the price. And this is definitely where you need a professional evaluation from an experienced Realtor® like Tom Henschen. Your Realtor® can provide you with an honest, unbiased assessment of your home based on several factors including:
What price do you offer a seller? Is the seller’s asking price too high? Is it a fair deal? Without research on the market and comparable homes, you could lose thousands of dollars. Before you make that offer, be sure you have researched the market. A professional Realtor® like Tom Henschen and Associates can offer an unbiased opinion on the value of a home, based on market conditions, condition of the home and the neighborhood. Without knowledge of the market, your offer could be too much. Or worse, you might not offer enough and could miss out on a great buying opportunity.
Define what it is you need vs what you want in a home. It sounds simple, yet clearly identifying your needs and bringing an objective view to home shopping, leaves you in a better position. Sometimes, home buyers buy a home that is too large or too small. Perhaps they didn’t consider the length of the drive to work, the distance to school, or the many repair jobs waiting for completion. Plan ahead. Use a ‘Needs’ list as a guideline for every home you view.
Make Sure You Have A Clear Title – Before you sign any document, be sure the property you are considering is free of all encumbrances. As part of their services, a Realtor® can supply you with a copy of the title to ensure there are no liens, debts, undisclosed owners, leases or easements and clearly review the final settlement statement regarding buyer costs.
Before the purchase is completed, getting a licensed home inspection, termite report and an updated survey is essential. This report will indicate boundaries and structural changes (i.e., additions to the house, a new swimming pool, a neighbor’s new fence which is extending a boundary line, etc.).
