    Are you considering relocating and buying a home? If you are, then you’ll eventually have to deal with the challenge of moving from where you currently live.

    If you have children, then you are probably already aware that they will often find moving away from their friends especially hard to accept. They have to learn to adapt to a new location, new people, and new schools, so the changes to their lives presented by a move can be pretty extensive and stressful. Don’t forget to make your children’s relocation smoother and less stressful by reviewing with them how to make new friends and establish themselves in school and their new neighborhood.

    Tips For Purchasing a Home

    1. Use a real estate agent.

    Buying and selecting a home is a major financial decision so you will want to have the best help and advice you can get to make sure that you have realistic expectations and that your interests are protected. You should strongly consider hiring an experienced agent as your buyer’s agent. By hiring a buyer’s agent, you will have a highly experienced professional looking out for your best interests throughout the transaction, which is a great benefit to you, even if you are a more experienced buyer. Regardless of how you decide to proceed, your KNZ Broker can give you professional guidance every step of the way as your real estate transaction progresses.

    2. Browse the Mortgage Market.

    Home buyers can save considerably over the long term by shopping around for the most favorable mortgage rates and terms. Even a small difference in rates, can add up to a considerable amount over the twenty to thirty year lifetime of a typical mortgage. As an example, if you take out a $200,000 mortgage at 6.5% versus the higher 7.0% home loan offered at another bank, you save $66.46 per month, but over thirty years, you will have saved $23,926!

    3. Have a loan prequalification letter prepared.

    You will be a more attractive as well as a more realistic buyer if you have a mortgage lender determine how much of a loan you qualify for and write you a prequalification letter. This letter shows a seller that you mean business and gives them a clear indication of whether or not you can afford their house. You can also move faster when you find the right property, which is especially important when you are competing against other buyers.

    4. Know what you are looking for.

    It’s important to have a good sense of the property you are interested in buying in your mind. Make a list of what aspects of a home are important to you, and divide them into two categories: (1) what you need, and (2) what you would like to have. Update the list as you view more properties and revise your expectations. You can also do an online property search to get a good idea of what is currently on the market. Your KNZ Brokers agent can then show you the properties that best fit your criteria for a home.

    5. Begin to search the housing market.

    Now that you have a better sense of what you are looking for, ask your KNZ Brokers agent to show you suitable properties. Keep a journal of those you visit, compare them to your list, and eliminate any that are unsuitable for your purposes.

    6. Be sensitive to house resale issues.

    In many areas, certain house features such as pools or detached garages can add to the likelihood of resale, or perhaps even reduce the house’s market appeal. Ask your KNZ Brokers agent to advise you on what features might affect each house’s resale value.

    7. Pick a favorite house for comparison.

    Write in your journal about each house you visit. Take notes about what you liked and what you didn’t. Come up with a rating system to help you reduce the available choices down to the ones that suit you best. Select a favorite house as your standard, and then compare each new one you visit to your favorite house until you find one that is better for your purposes. Then use the better house as your new standard. Try not to compare more than four houses at one time.

    8. Prepare an offer.

    When you’ve seen a house that you really like, be sure to act quickly. Allow your KNZ Broker agent to use their expertise to help you prepare an offer, and then negotiate a calm and successful transaction where both parties end up satisfied with the result.

    9. Inspect the house.

    Once your offer is accepted by the seller, you will want to have a professional inspector look over the property and report any problems or issues back to you. If necessary, your KNZ Brokers agent can help you find such an inspector. Faults such as missing roof shingles, wall imperfections, foundation cracks and problematic insect colonies can be caught this way, and your KNZ Brokers agent can help you negotiate for any repairs that need to be made. If you do obtain repair concessions, make sure you do a thorough walk through before completing the final paperwork to ascertain whether or not the agreed upon repairs have been done. Consider purchasing a home protection plan to insure you against a wide range of potential post-purchase problems.

    10. Complete the transaction.

    Do all that is necessary to complete the transaction in a timely way. Your KNZ Brokers agent will be happy to go through a checklist with you to make sure that necessary deposits have been made, papers signed, loans and insurance obtained, etc… Basically, your agent is there to keep on top of the transaction and to assure that everything that needs to be done is in fact done to close the deal as efficiently and as enjoyably as possible for all concerned.

    11. Get ready to enjoy your new home!

    Before you move in, you’ll want to consider first doing any necessary major repairs or cleaning jobs that are easier to do on an empty house. You’ll also want to make sure that the utilities and alarm systems will be turned on, and that you change your address at the post office.
