Top Buying Mistakes
Top Problems Associated With Acquiring a Home
Some of these points may seem very obvious to you but take a moment and
look them over. Have you possibly let your enthusiasm run wild and are
you about to close on a home that is just not right for you?
Not Doing Your Due Diligence.
By not educating yourself to the process involved, and gathering as much
information as possible from as many sources as there are available, you
will set yourself up for loss. Considering the over abundance of information
specific to home buying their in no rational excuse for not reviewing
it all, and making sure that you understand it all.
Don't Outsmart Yourself and End Up in the Lurch.
Do not try to make a shrewd investment that you may not be capable of.
If you are a novice in the real property game do not try to predict what
is going to happen to the market.
Location ~ Location ~ Location.
You have heard this all before but there is a distinct reason for it.
Just because the city, town or neighborhood has fairly good real property
values doesn't mean that every property is valued as high as the others.
What is the immediate vicinity of your proposed property like? Is it near
a correctional facility, a municipal landfill project or too close to
What Does the Whole Package Look Like?
Do not make the mistake of becoming enamored by one aspect of your proposed
purchase. Just because the house may have a spectacular look when you
pull up the drive and a new kitchen and renovated bathrooms, what is the
actual layout of the house and is its infrastructure sound?
Is This the Right House for You and Your Family?
Carefully consider how your family lives. Will you spend more time in
the living room watching TV or will you all gather at the kitchen table
to talk? Do you need that extra bathroom or would a small office or den
be more your style? You will have to live in it until you choose to upgrade
or move for a myriad of reasons. Do not sacrifice your comfort and happiness
just to own a home.
Have You Had All the Proper Inspections and Surveys Done Before
Be sure to have all the appropriate appraisals, land surveys and building
and land inspections before you get to far down the path to owning any
home. A few smart dollars spent at the outset can help to fend off major
expenses or delays in the future. Law requires most inspections, too.
Who Built Your Home?
Find out what contractor is responsible for your proposed property and go to
see the other homes he has built. Knock on a few doors and politely ask the
people if they are happy with their home and if there is anything that you need
to question or look at closer relative to the structure you are considering
Do Not Jump the Gun or
Allow Your Impatience to Push You Into a Sale.
If you are being pressured from the seller or even by your own immediacy stop,
look analyze what is going on, and delay the process if need be. For most people
buying a home will be the largest purchase of a single item in their entire lives.
Do not live to regret it simply because you did not take a few extra days or
weeks to thoroughly check out every facet of the deal.
Is The Current Market
Suited to Your Needs?
Do not fall prey to the axiom "Hindsight is always twenty-twenty".
Avoiding a Purchase All
Together Can at Times Be the Biggest Mistake.
After you have done your due diligence and exhausted all the metrics that you
can apply to purchasing a home do not lose the benefits associated with buying
that home if you can afford to. Don't continue to throw your hard earned cash
into rentals; do not forgo the tax deductions and equity and most of all, the
investments appreciation in valu
