Buying a home is likely the largest debt that you will ever undertake; the average loan amount is 80%-95% of the home's cost. It is therefore essential when deciding to buy a home that you educate yourself in the intricate details of the lending process. In addition, choosing a REALTOR® to assist you with mortgage information, financing options and potential loan sources will simplify the process; it is a source of confidence to have one acting in your best interest.
At first the process of shopping for a new home is exciting and fun. Once you've chosen the real estate agent, you get to travel all over town and look at houses that may become your next home. However, after a while, this process gets pretty tedious. You'll spend whole weekends trekking from one location to another, finding homes that are disappointing or overpriced. A house advertised as a 4 bedroom is in reality a 3 bedroom with a converted utility room or garage space. Remodeled may mean the previous owners installed a "repurposed" oven in the kitchen. New carpet seems to be a relative term, and "view" may mean an unobstructed view of the freeway. A long, unproductive day home shopping is a real hassle particularly if you have to take the kids. Whether shopping for your first home or relocating for the umpteenth time, you can waste a lot of time and energy trying to fine just the right house. Luckily, many realtors are using the internet to simplify the process.
