So, You Want to Buy a House . . . But Are You Ready?

Boost Curb Appeal

Maybe you’re sick of paying hundreds of dollars a month for an apartment, or you’re ready to have a bigger back yard for old Fido to run around. Whatever it is that’s making you contemplate buying a new home (or your first), make sure you have a few things in order before you jump the gun. Here are a few questions to ask yourself to get started.

  • What are the pros and cons of renting vs. owning?
  • Whats my budget?
  • If living with someone or married, is my significant other on the same page as I am?

Once you’ve answered these questions, contact a licensed real estate agent to help you start your home search process. In this seller’s market, it’s usually important to speak with a lender and get pre-approved. This will ensure you’ve got everything you need to make a strong offer when the right property comes along.
