Finding a home can be intimidating, particularly for first-time homebuyers. As such, you'll want to conduct an extensive search, do plenty of research along the way and ensure any residence you check out meets all of your needs. Ultimately, you'll want to make an informed home purchase. And in order to do so, here are three factors that you'll want to consider: 1. The Current Real Estate Market Do you know the difference between a buyer's market and a seller's one? If not, you may be in trouble, especially if you hope to find a bargain on the real estate market. Real estate prices may fluctuate depending on a variety of factors, including the national economy and supply and demand for houses in a particular area. Thus, you'll want to be thorough and learn as much as possible about the real estate market in your area. Examining the prices of houses in a particular area is valuable, as this will enable you to see what previous homebuyers paid for residences over the past few months. Also, you should meet with a real estate agent who will be able to provide you with extensive housing market data that can help you make the best decision. 2. Your Budget Let's face it – a starter home may be one of several residences you own in your lifetime. As a result, it should serve as a viable residence that you can enjoy for at least a few years, then allow you to move on to a bigger and better house. When it comes to searching the real estate market for a starter home, you'll want to take a close look at your budget. By doing so, you'll be able to determine the maximum amount that you can afford for a starter residence and explore homes within a set price range. To establish a budget, you should consult with a lender and try to get pre-approved for a mortgage. That way, you'll know what you can afford, be able to improve your chances of purchasing a starter home that fits your budget and accelerate the process of finding a new place to live. 3. Your Must-Haves Although a starter home is commonly viewed as a short-term residence, there's no reason to settle for a subpar residence. Instead, you can make a list of must-haves and wants for your new home and explore the real estate market for a residence that fulfills your needs. Your must-haves are essentials, i.e. things like central air if you want to move to a warm-weather climate. On the other hand, wants may include things like a swimming pool and other non-essential features. Differentiate your must-haves from your wants by deciding exactly what you need from a starter home. Crafting a list of must-haves and wants will help you determine what is important to you and make it easier to search for residences that meet your homebuying criteria. Use the aforementioned tips to avoid the stress commonly associated with buying your first house, and you should have no trouble finding a great starter residence quickly and effortlessly.
As the old saying goes, “You only have one chance to make a great first impression.” – Front Door And Entryway The entryway and front door should be in immaculate condition. This is the entry to your home and reflects the personality of the property. Polish the door and entryway lighting fixtures until they gleam. If the front door requires refinishing or repainting, be sure to freshen thing up before you put the house on the market. If you have a nameplate or personalized address plaque, remove it. You want to depersonalize the entryway. Potential buyers may find it hard to visualize the property as their “new home” if it is “branded” with your personal decorations. Install a fresh doormat. You can always take it with you when you leave, however an attractive fresh mat helps make the home look tidy and well maintained: so replace the old one. Dependent on the season, a couple of pots of fresh flowers or seasonal greenery are a nice compliment to an attractive entryway. Make sure the key you provide for the realtor works smoothly in your entryway lock. When an agent uses the key to show the property, you do not want potential buyers to have to wait while the realtor tries to get the key to work properly. Yard And Landscape “Spruce-up” your landscape by making sure the lawn is mowed, leaves are raked and trees trimmed. During winter months make sure the sidewalks are shoveled and free from snow and ice. Remove all clutter from the driveway and front and back yard. Park extra vehicles, boats and RV’s offsite. You do not want the driveway to look cramped or indicate that there is a lack of parking space. Remove yard ornaments. You might love to collect frogs or gnomes, but they may not be to everyone’s taste. If you have children’s playground equipment or a swing set, it is also best to remove them and place in storage as they tend to make the yard appear cramped and crowded, especially if your backyard is small already. Clean the gutters and make sure they are in good repair before listing the property. If gutters are hanging or window shutters are in need of repair, it makes it appear that the entire property is in a state of disrepair. Lighting While your property is on the market for sale, it is a good idea to remember to keep the exterior of the house well lighted so that it appears bright, cheerful and inviting. Make sure than lights come on at dusk and remain on until late evening. Often prospective homebuyers will drive by a property prior to making an appointment to view the home with their realtor. If the home is dark, dim and uninviting, the buyer is likely to reject the property before seeing the many beautiful interior amenities.
