Buying a Home


If you are wanting to buy a home, you want to feel confident that the real estate agent you select can best serve you in a way that is convenient and professional, in the shortest time, at the best price, and with the least headache. We can do this for you. We have all of the real estate tools in the marketplace to ensure your success in finding the home you have always wanted.


Buying a home can appear at first to be a daunting task, but if your Realtor is doing their job, this can be a rewarding experience.

    Some Pro Tips Before you Purchase

  • Even if the quality of a school district doesn't matter to you now, remember it might someday to another buyer.
  • Expect lower maintenance costs with a brand-new home.
  • Never tell a seller's broker how much you'll raise your offer for a particular house.
  • When interest rates are low, opt for a fixed mortgage.
  • Pay attention to floor plans. Changing layouts of rooms later can be costly.
  • You can deduct on that years tax return points paid by either party on the purchase of your own residence.
  • If the present owner has a title insurance policy less than 3 years old, you could have substantial savings by buying a reissue of that policy rather than a completely new one.
  • Pay attention to the original listing date of the homes you inspect;
    Sellers tend to be more flexible in the price the longer the home is on the market.
  • A house that's sited to take advantage of the sun, the wind and the topography costs less to heat and cool and can save thousands of dollars over the years in utility bills.
  • Buying a house whose style is uniquely individual will probably minimize rather than maximize its resale value because the house will appeal to a somewhat more limited number of potential buyers.
  • If you think you may need more space in the near future,
    be sure the house and lot will allow for expansion.
  • Redoing a kitchen is likely to be expensive. So be sure of what you need and want before you buy.
  • Don't buy a house with foundation problems. Although most foundation problems can be corrected, repair work is usually expensive.
  • Before you buy a house that may have a wet basement problem, get a good unbiased diagnosis from a professional with moisture control experience. The solution could be costly.
  • A roof that complements the style of a home and is carefully maintained adds to the home's visual appeal and its resale value.
  • A light-colored roof reflects heat and is best in areas where air-conditioning is the greater energy user. In colder weather climates, a dark roof is preferable because it absorbs more heat. In temperate climates, a middle-range shade is best.
  • Wood floors suggest warmth, quality and good taste and are an asset -- when it comes time to sell a house.
