The Steps of A Home Search

If you have determined that you are ready to buy a house (click here for more information about determining if you are ready) the next question to ask is how do I do it? What is the smartest way to go about buying a home? What are the first steps in a home search? This article will show how to begin the process of buying a home as well as point out some common pitfalls that can be avoided. Step 1 – Finding a Really Good Realtor It’s easy enough to start browsing houses on the internet or going to the random open house, but at some point you will want to get more serious about looking at homes.  The first step towards getting more serious about looking for a home is finding a good Realtor who has been through the process time and time again.  Most people end up working with a Realtor, so why not engage one early on in the process?  Realtor’s have tools that will save you time and put you on track to finding the right home more quickly.  A good Realtor is much more than a person who shows you the houses that you have found online, they serve as an information source, an advocate and a guide through the process.  Make sure you are working with a Realtor who is more interested in helping you find a great house for the long term rather than a quick sale for them.  It takes patience and persistence to make sure you end up in the right home. Note: A Realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors... read more

Am I Ready to Buy a House?

Am I ready to buy a house? It starts as a subtle suggestion in the back of your mind. You might hear yourself thinking; “this is ridiculous, rents are so high and I’m throwing my money away” or “now that I’ve landed that job I’m ready to settle down” or “we’ve been saving for years and now is the time to buy before prices go up any more”, or “all of my friends are buying places and they seem to be doing great”.  Whatever dialog is whispering in your ear, there comes a time when it may make sense for you to buy a home of your own.  But are you truly ready?  This article will help first time home buyers to analyze that question and help get you ready to make the purchase. Is it smart to buy a house? (when I say house I mean any residential real estate) If done correctly, owning a home is for many people best financial decision they ever make.  According to the 2014 Survey of Consumer Financing by the Federal Reserve the median net worth of a homeowner was $194,500 compared to $5,400 for renters. During the time frame of 2008 – 2012 many homeowners were adversely affected by the housing crisis and economic downturn that resulted in a record number of foreclosures and short sales nationally. For those who bought just before the crisis or those who needed to sell when prices dropped in many areas (click here to see why Boulder County was named the most stable market in the country) owning a home may not seem like a wealth enhancing... read more
