Your First Steps
Your first step to buying a home is to ask yourself - "What is my main motivation?"
- To stop paying rent?
- To start building equity?
- To have a place of my own?
- To raise a family?
- To entertain business associates?
- To have more space?
Next...make a specific list of "must haves" and "want to haves." for your prospective new home. Make a list of acceptable and ideal locations.
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to and from work.
Think about home styles.
- How much space do you need?
- Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable?
- Consider the size and type of property.
- Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up?
- Someday you or your heirs will want to sell.
- Consider how long you intend to reside in this new home.
