Buying a Property
BUYING YOUR PRIMARY PROPERTY
We understand that buying a property as your primary home is one of the biggest investments you are likely to make in your lifetime. Therefore, our agents make sure you seal the best home buying deal in town. Not only do we help you find your dream home in your desired neighborhood at a budget friendly price, but we also help fetch you the best value mortgage loan. Unlike others, we don’t work for commission by convincing you to choose a particular lender; we only work for your best interest.
The old real estate saying is “location, location, location.” But what exactly does that mean? Should you forgo other wants and desires in order to have the right location? Sort of… like most things real estate, the answer isn’t quite black and white. Though kitchens can be remodeled, bathrooms can be added, and additions can give you more square feet, location can never be changed. The busy street that runs in front of the house? Yes, that will most likely be there in twenty years. The train tracks that run behind the house? Yes, those will most likely be there in twenty years. The 7-Eleven next door? Yes, that will most likely be there in twenty years. The nuclear power plant across the street… you get the point. Just remember that making changes to a house can be expensive. But they can be done. The location is something you are going to have to deal with forever. My advice: If you are sure the house is a short term stop for you and your family (less the a few years), then location becomes less important. However, make sure you buy it at the right price, make sure that you are ok selling it for a minimal profit, and make sure that you are in a situation where you won’t have to sell it quick. If you plan on staying put in the house for a while, buy something that is in the right location. You can update the wall colors, update the flooring, and update the fixtures. But again, you can’t update the location.
BUYING INVESTMENT PROPERTY
When it comes to buying a property for investment purposes, as an investor, you need to be watchful of the market and the prevailing economic trends to ensure you buy an investment property in a hot market where there is a soaring demand for rentals.
At present, the US housing market is in an upward swing and is expected to surge higher in the coming years. This means this is the perfect time for investors to invest in real estate. However, in some states the real estate market is heating up faster and experiencing double digit growth. The factors behind the rapid growth include expanding job market and flexible loan terms. And this is exactly, why investors need to be watchful of the market. Having a sound understanding about the real estate market helps you make a profitable and an informed decision.
