3 Little-Known Tips for Buying a Home

DSC_6076-600x400-resized

Buying a home is no small feat. When looking to purchase a home, there are endless factors to consider. Here are a few quick tips on searching for the perfect home.

Pre-Approval Means A Lot: If you get preapproved from a lender, it can mean a lot to your budget and your realtor! All of the contributors will feel more invested in you if you are pre-approved for a mortgage. Try to stay friendly with the people at your bank so you can ask friendly questions (like the best interest rates and hidden fees that might be associated with the loan).

Stick to the Facts: Buying a home can be difficult, but try not to get too emotionally invested in your hom- buying experience. It will help you stay strong if your bid is not accepted on a house,or if the deal just doesn’t fit with your budget.

You’re Moving Into Your New Neighborhood: Remember, you’re not just moving into a new house – You’re moving into a whole neighborhood! Take into consideration how your neighbors live, where the grocery store is, and where you can get a good slice of pizza.

If you’ve determined that now is the right time to buy a new home, we’re here to help you get started. For information on homes for sale in Lake Wylie, SC, visit LKWRealty.com!

Lakefront Living: Tips On Purchasing Lakefront Property

lakefrontLakefront homes are a certain niche in real estate. Choosing to live on a lake requires a certain amount of lifestyle choices to consider. Typically, homes located on a lake are considered more valuable, which leads to a higher price tag. Even when the housing market declines, the lake housing market holds steady as the value does not decrease with the market. When considering the purchase of a lakefront home, it is important to consider many factors. Here are a few tips before purchasing lakefront property.

 

Location: Be conscious of where the house is located on the lake. This could include an area of the lake that is rocky or sandy, if the windows primarily face the lake, or if there is a boat launchpad nearby.
State of the Home:  When looking to purchase a home on a lake, consider that there is constantly moisture in the air. Be wary of purchasing a home that has had previous damage or issues with affected wood, metal or stone that is attached to the home. Contact a home inspector for this step, if possible.
Hire the Right Realtor: The right realtor will understand what you are looking for and avoids wasting your time on properties that are not within your budget. You want a realtor you can trust to help you attain the best deal on your next home.
