This is the 1st step to buying a home.
If you're thinking of buying a home, you've come to the right person. Before we jump in, make sure three things are ready: you, your bank account, and the real estate market.
- Are you ready? Be sure.
- Is your bank account ready? Check it twice.
- Is now a good time to buy?
Here's the hottest market tip you'll ever get:
Markets go up, markets go down and even the smartest experts can't accurately predict when a market will peak or bottom out. If you're buying a home as a long term investment (and for a long-term employment), you should be protected from short-term changes in the market. Pick a home that meets the needs of you and your family, and one that will be appealing someday to other buyers (i.e., a practical layout in a great location). Then, you'll enjoy living in your investment as it grows in value.
