The real estate market can be a scary place! Jumping in without being prepared can be your worst mistake. Here are 5 smart home buying tips to make your home buying process that much easier!
1) Do not buy a house more than 2.5 times your yearly salary. This is a realistic guideline to ensure that you are not overextending yourself on your mortgage.
2) Buy a house in an excellent school district, even if you don't have children. This will increase the resale value.
3) Before you buy, hire your own home inspector to detect any problems.
4) Get a pre-approval letter on your mortgage. This will give you more negotiating power with the seller.
5) Get a realistic view of the neighborhood before you buy. Drive from your potential home to work and locate shops, malls, and schools all around your potential home.
