Anyone who’s ever bought a home knows that it’s best to compile as much knowledge as possible during the process – and these three secrets from home-buying pros are a great place to start.
Home-Buying Secret #1: Don’t Let Your Emotions Run the Transaction
Buying a home is a highly emotional process – and it can be incredibly difficult to detach your feelings from your logic. When you fall in love with a house, it can be difficult to make the right choices. You may be willing to overlook certain flaws, but remember, they’ll become more and more apparent when the “honeymoon” period wears off.
Home-Buying Secret #2: Don’t Skip the Home Inspector
When you purchase a new home, you’re buying all its baggage, as well. It always pays to hire a home inspector, even if you’re buying from someone you know or the home is new. The home inspector has only one job, and that’s to tell you what you need to know so you can make the most informed decision possible.
As a side benefit, if the inspector uncovers any issues with the home, you can use them as bargaining tools.
Home-Buying Secret #3: Your Realtor® and Negotiations Are Important
If you’ve purchased a home before, you already know that negotiation is just part of the package. Your Realtor is highly trained in the art of negotiation, so it’s a good idea to listen to his or her advice when it comes to settling on the purchase price for a home.
