Tips for First Time Home Buyers

November 2nd, 2016

Tips for First Time Home Buyers

 Fivepoints Athens, GA Open House IMG_23681.jpg Eastside Home for sale Athens, GA

So you’ve made the decision to become a Home Owner!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

 Now……what’s next?

How do you start your search?

Why do you need a Buyers Agent??

The Holidays are just around the corner…….

should you wait until January to start your house hunt??

At Brittany Purcell & Associates, Client Education is important to us! Check out our Tips for First Time Home Buyers, and let us help YOU make a great decision about one of the largest purchases you’ll ever make!

  • Starting Your Search: Begin by making a list of your needs in a home, and your wants in a home–but be sure to put these in 2 different columns! Needs are deal breakers–if you absolutely have to have 3 bedrooms because of the number of people who will be living in the home, then that’s definitely a “need.” Wants are options that you would like to have, but you can live without–you may want walk-in his and hers closets in the Master, but the house you fall in love with may not have that feature, so you compromise on that “want.” Obviously, if you are making this purchase with your spouse, family members, or another person, you’ll want to include them in this discussion. Once you’ve got an idea about the things you’re looking for in a home, you’ll want to start thinking about the location. Make note of all the neighborhoods that you’re willing to look at, and be sure to consider details like school systems, and the proximity of shopping, dining, etc, and anything else that is important to YOU!
  • Using a Buyers Agent: Many people believe that you don’t need to use an Agent to buy a house, especially if the seller is using an Agent, because their Agent will be able to complete the necessary paperwork and arrange the closing. And while that is true, who do you think that Agent is looking out for? Well the Seller’s Agent is looking out for the Seller, of course! That doesn’t mean that the Seller’s Agent is dishonest, or trying to take advantage of you, but if the Seller has an Agent who is devoted to getting the Seller the very best deal possible, shouldn’t you have someone in your corner, too?? When you’re negotiating the sales price on a home, wouldn’t you like to have an Agent of your own helping you decide what’s a fair price based on recent sales in the area, and the current market? And don’t forget that the Buyers Agents at BP&A have several great lenders that we work with that we would be able to connect you with, so that financing isn’t such a major hassle for you! Another reason some people say that they don’t need an Agent is because they have the internet and can research listings on their own through various websites. This is also true, but when you use a BP&A Buyers Agent, you will have their help in searching listings–which might mean that they have access to sites that you don’t have, and they also have tons of Agent contacts that they can call on to help you find homes that aren’t listed yet, but are coming on the market soon. So now that you know that a Buyers Agent will look out for your interests exclusively, including negotiating the best price, and you know that a Buyers Agent can help you find your dream home, even if it isn’t on the market quite yet, what is holding you back?? What if I told you that the Buyers Agent provides all of this at NO COST TO YOU?? Would that change your mind? It’s true! If the home is listed with another Agent, that Agent has already negotiated the commission from the Seller, and part of that commission will pay YOUR Buyers Agent! Now THAT is what we at BP&A like to call a WIN-WIN!!!
  • Benefits of Buying in the Fall: A lot of buyers and sellers tend to think of the Spring and Summer months as the prime Real Estate “season.” But there are a number of reasons why Fall is a GREAT time to purchase Your First Home! One of the biggest reasons is that there is far less competition among Buyers in the Fall. When there are fewer Buyers, you may find yourself in an excellent bargaining position if a Seller is motivated! Current mortgage rates are another great reason for a First Time Home Buyer to make their purchase NOW and take advantage of these LOW rates! And don’t forget, when you make your home purchase before the end of the year, any mortgage interest or property taxes that you pay in 2016, will make you eligible for tax deductions when you file in April.

 

If you’re ready to talk about YOUR path to becoming a Home Owner,

our Buyers Agents are ready to Help! Give us a Call TODAY!!
