Buyers – What Are You Looking For In A Pleasant Hill Home?

Buying a home can sometimes be a complicated process if you don’t know what you’re searching for.

It’s always easier to think about what you really want in a home before you start your home search, especially defining your list of must haves and should haves for the home you want to purchase.

A must have is something like: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, close to schools, shopping and more while a “should have” can be anything from granite counter tops, sky lights, new flooring throughout the home.

Keep in mind that should haves can always be added later to the home after you buy it so don’t ignore a potentially great home because it might not have everything you’re searching for.

Pleasant Hill Home for Sale – Now Is the Right Time to Buy

Pleasant Hill Homes For Sale

Pleasant Hill Homes For Sale – Simple Tips For Buying A Home

 

Use these tips if you’re thinking about buying a home in Pleasant Hill

 

By Pleasant Hill Times

 

Now is the perfect time to buy a Pleasant Hill Home For Sale because, mortgage interest rates have decreased to just 4.25% for a 30-year fixed mortgage loan (lowest since 2013).

 

This means you can save hundreds of dollars per month on your mortgage payment, compared to waiting another year, and thousands over the lifetime of your mortgage loan.

 

In today’s post I’ll break down home buying tips which will give you the edge over other buyers who are searching for a Pleasant Hill Home for Sale.

 

Tip 1 – Establish a Real Budget

 

Before searching for a Pleasant Hill Home for Sale you should establish a budget and determine what you can really afford to pay when buying a home.

 

Buying a home isn’t all about the payment; you will need to consider the additional costs of home ownership like homeowners insurance, taxes and possible Homeowners Association fees which will come with owning a home.

 

Tip 2 – Get Pre-Approved For Buying a Pleasant Hill Home for Sale

 

Although the common home mortgage ‘buzz word’ these days is pre-qualified, you will want to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan because, pre-approval means your lender will have taken more steps to confirm that you are really able to buy a home and have a down payment, credit score and job history to be approved for a home loan.

 

Tip 3 – Stand Out From Other Buyers

 

Last of all, but most important, as a home buyer your goal should be to stand out from other buyers by doing simple things like:

 

  • Work with the seller on their schedule and consider options like rent back if needed.
  • Write a personalized letter to the seller to tell them your story.
  • Agree to the seller’s timeline and don’t be unreasonable with setting your own tight time frames for building inspections and or finance conditions.
