Whether you are a first time home buyer or a seasoned investor, review of House Hunting 101 guidelines is order when hitting the streets in this seller’s market:
#1. Know what your goals and budget are. Have a narrow band of flexibility – but don’t stray wildly.
#2. Don’t fall in love. That emotion causes poor decision making and blinds the buyer to clues of future problems.
#3. Use the tools available to you in your hunt. Real estate agent, the real estate web sites, public records, home inspectors, etc, etc.
#4. If you’ve followed rules 1-3 be BOLD. Make the offer, take the leap and be aggressive to get what you want. It’s your home.
As always, I’m thinking Real Estate,
