Important Facts For Home Buyers

Home inspections can reveal many hidden flaws and problems that could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs.

Compare the mortgage terms and interest rates offered by various mortgage lenders. Even a slight difference in your interest rate can add up to thousands of dollars over the length of your mortgage. A pre-approval from the lender of your choice will not only give you added confidence when shopping for a new home, but could give you added leverage when bargaining with the seller. A pre-approval will let you know the exact amount you are approved for and will save you time after your offer has been accepted by the seller.
Using a buyer agent is an excellent way to help protect your interests when shopping for a home. A buyer agent will be responsible for helping you get the best deal possible on your new home. While shopping for a home, be aware that certain features can adversely affect the resale value of the home. Detached garages and swimming pools can actually lessen the value of the property. Protect your investment by educating yourself on the home buying process and the way property is appraised.

Interest rates and closing costs vary from lender to lender and the difference could mean thousands of dollars over time. There are numerous flexible loan programs available. Finding the loan that will best suit your long term needs will be of great value to you when it is time to sell the home. Just a half point difference in your interest rate will translate into a lot of money over the years.
Keep in mind that there are additional costs involved in purchasing a home. Homeowners association fees, furniture, annual heating and cooling costs, and homeowners insurance need to be considered when planning to purchase a new home. Buying a new home does not have to be stressful and frustrating. Make sure you know the facts and your home buying experience will be quick and painless.
