Buying Your First Home: What to Look For

Buying your first home is truly one of the most exciting times of your life. It will happen just once so make it count. You’ve saved and managed your finances well and the rewards will be great. However, avoid becoming overwhelmed as you begin the process of looking for your own place. Ponder these points to maximize the chances you’ll make the best decision: 1. Explore different communities on your own before contacting a realtor. Listen to what your friends have to say about where they live. If you see an interesting subdivision on your way home from work, drive through it to see what it offers. 2. Think first about your commute to work. Would it bother you to drive an hour to and from work? If so, that will help you rule out some neighborhoods right off the bat. Maybe you’d like to limit your work travel to twenty minutes each way. Since your work is how you bring in your dollars, work is likely the first thing to consider when you’re getting ready to shop for a home. 3.

10 Tips to Prepare Your Home for the Real Estate Market

Selling a home can be frustrating or invigorating. Going into the process with a positive attitude helps immensely when it comes to navigating all the work and preparation required. If you put the following tips into action, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly your house will sell. 1. Consider curb appeal. The fact is we all want a home that looks inviting on the outside. Go out and stand near the street and take a long hard look at your home and property. How does it look? Does the home’s exterior appear freshly painted and clean? Is the grass nice and green and mowed? If you have plants and trees, ensure they are trimmed and looking healthy. If your walks and drive-way need sprucing up, power-wash them. Think clean-looking, trimmed, and well-cared-for. 2. Have an inviting front entrance. A front door painted with a “wow” color or showing a lovely stained glass window is the icing on your “cake” of curb appeal.
