Buying Your Dream Home - On the House

Buying Your Dream Home

By on January 24, 2014

I think you’ll agree Jed Clampett and his family didn’t do a very good job of house hunting in Beverly Hills. Their home was too big and not their style. It didn’t suit their needs or any of the farm animals either. So what should you do to avoid these mistakes when out and about looking for new digs? A home is probably the largest single investment you’ll make, and that’s why the home-buying process should be undertaken with great care. First, find a good real estate agent to help you shop. You might even need an attorney to manage the sale. When you find a house don’t just start bidding.

First find out all you can about taxes, costs and things like if it can be expanded later.

Then have it gone over by a professional home inspector. Getting a written report first can save thousands of dollars down the road.

Finally be patient. Closing takes about 30 days or more after an agreed price. Last, but not least, check out things like schools, the neighborhood and what kind of folks live next door. If you don’t, you just might find Jed, Ellie May, Granny and Jethro cooking, farming and shooting up the place. And that’s the On The House tip for today.
