Decide Your Budget
Your budget will decide which house you are going to get and where it will be located. If your budget is small but you want a good luxurious house then obviously the location of that house won’t be so good or it will be situated a little bit out of the city. And if you want a house to be located in the heart of the city then you won’t be able to get a luxurious house on a small budget. So before going any further, you must decide your budget first.
Start Your Survey
Now you have decided on your budget. It is now time to start surveying different homes with your agent. An agent is very necessary when you are going to buy a home because he/she can give you some professional opinions about the house. First of all, you must start surveying from expensive homes to less expensive homes to get the better idea of ongoing prices.
What Do You Want?
Do you want to buy a house with furniture, fridge, and other basic necessities or you are going to purchase all of them on your own? How many bedrooms and bathrooms you want in the house? Finish your survey for one day after watching 10 or 15 houses otherwise, all of them will get mixed and at the end of the day you will be confused. Write down some good and bad points about each house; take some pictures and come back home to discuss with other family members.
Time to Decide
Now you have seen enough houses in a few days. It is time for you to decide which house is best for you. The main points you should consider about every house are its location, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and how much repairing the house needs.
Know Your Insurance Payments
You can a home insurance quote in advance, or ask the current owners or builders for an estimate of the payments you’ll need to make. This is vital information for your long-term personal finance!
Your Agent Can Help You
Agents can be a real help as they know the ongoing prices of homes. They can also tell you which part of the house needs repairing. If the house needs too much repairing then you can ask the seller to lower the price or you can ask him to get everything repaired and then you can pay the normal price asked by the seller.
Make an Offer
After seeing everything it is time to make a final offer to the seller. Ask your agent to make a reasonable offer to the seller. If the seller agrees then you can sign the papers and become the owner of the house immediately. Agents usually don’t charge too many fees so that shouldn’t be your main concern.
