Bristol County – 5 Mistakes First Time Home Buyers Make Most Often

When buying or selling a home, I can be a powerful asset for you.
The main focus of my services is to help and educate homebuyers and sellers so they understand from the beginning the entire process of buying and owning a home.

All agents are not the same. As in every profession there are those that excel and are committed to excellence, and those that are not. I have what it takes to make a difference on all your real estate needs.
Now, I would like to talk about 5 Mistakes First Time Home Buyers Make Most Often:

  1. Getting a Pre-Approval
    Many people assume they will find the perfect house and sign the contract. While this is a mistake most buyers make, you should get approved first before you can decide which house you want to buy.
  2. Getting A Better Mortgage Rate Quote
    Getting a mortgage quote from just one lender may seem time-consuming…but is necessary. There is a lot of competition out there for the best rates and terms. Make sure you have chosen the most cost-efficient mortgage for you…not the lender.
  3. Deciding That you “DO NOT” Need a Real Estate Agent
    Real estate agents are consultants that will advise you on the best course of action. Not only do they know about the process of buying a home but, a good real estate agent will save money by handling the process expertly to your favor. Having a real estate expert in your side will help you achieve all your real estate goals…with no problems or stress.

  1. Buying a Home that You Can Afford
    Be sure you take in consideration any other monthly expenses that may also be added to your mortgage payment. This includes taxes, HOA fees, CONDO fees, maintenance fees and the potential for increased utility costs.
  2. Home Inspection Waiver
    Home inspections are there to protect home buyers from serious issues with the home’s structure or other systems. During the home inspection, you’ll receive a report with any potential issues or defects in the home, Your real estate agents should use the report to negotiate the necessary repairs or get credit by reducing the price of the house.

Buying a house is an important decision, and you should make sure that you have a solid understanding of how the process works. Your real estate agent is there to protect your best interests and to make sure you avoid these five common mistakes.

Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you’ve signed.

Please don’t hesitate to call and ask me any questions you might have. This process is all about you and your needs. Real Estate is a big investment and I understand that. One thing you will get with us is a personal relationship, In the end, that goes a long way.
