If you decide the time is right, here are some key things to look for in your first home.
It is essential to know how much your first home will cost. If you’re unsure about how to get this right, contact a reputable real estate agent.
A thorough inspection is a must if you want a realistic view of the good, bad and worst side of the house. After all, it’s hard-earned money you’re investing here.
Proper Lawn and Garden
Trees provide more than just shade and cool air for your home; they also filter water and air to reduce soil erosion and greenhouse gases. Plus, your energy bills all year round will be significantly reduced if you let Mother Nature help you out a bit.
A Long-Term Stay
If you cannot see yourself staying here for a good five to ten years, it may not be worth the expensive down payment or mortgage expenses and can even put you in financial ruin.
Home values are greatly affected by the kind of neighborhood it belongs to. You want your first home to be in an area where crime rate is at a minimum, public facilities are just a stone’s throw away, and potential neighbors feel pride in their ownership of their own homes.
Your Ruhl&Ruhl Realtor can identify and recognize if the property you’re interested in has these factors. They will be able to tell you whether your house is a hot deal or not worth your money. It’s your fundamental right to know if your first home is the right place for you and your loved ones.
