Planning Tips for Buying Your First Home

If you dream of owning your own home, there is no better time to do it than now!  It is a very profitable market right now and, with low rates, only requires a small initial investment. In order to fit your budget and your goals, here are a few tips that will help your decision.

  • Look for a home that will adequately fit your family. Some questions you may want to ask yourself are how many bedrooms will you need, how large of a living space will make you comfortable, do you need a large yard, where will your children go to school, and are there certain safety aspects you are looking for in the home and neighborhood.
  • Do you want a fixer-upper? If you don't mind putting in the work, you can get a home for a good price and there are mortgage programs available to help with the improvement costs. Don't allow minor repairs to overshadow a home's potential.
  • Consider your future needs for family growth and financial stability: Are you planning for children or more children?  Will a job change require you to make a move? 
  • If a seller declines your initial offer, don't despair! Your realtor will creatively mediate between the seller and you to provide an opportunity to make the price affordable for you.

The most important tip of all:  Align yourself with a great team that will work tirelessly to help you find your first home.   Kannapolis Real Estate has experienced Realtors that will work side-by-side with you every step of the way. We would love to be a part of your home-buying team!
