Buying a home - A celebration?

Should buying a home be an exciting time? In actual fact it should be a celebration and can be. It is also the biggest financial decision that you will make in your life. With the excitement also comes a period of hard work and research. If you know what to look for, then you can go out and enjoy the hunt for your dream home. So where do you start the home search? Find good, reputable agents who will willingly share information, assist you in the process and who really want to match your requirements with the homes that are available for sale. Walk away from the pressure merchants. Be honest with the agents. Share what you are looking for, when you want to buy, where you want to live and why? Have a note book ready to write down the features and benefits of each home.
Allow the agent to make a time to show you a number of homes, but never more that 4-5. If you look at more you will be confused. Be totally frank with the agent. Tell the agent what you don’t like and what you do like as it will help them. The more you communicate with the agent the easier it will be to find a house.
To help you keep your sanity and your cash, become an informed consumer and make the correct decision.
