Buying a Home
Homeownership is becoming a reality for more and more Americans. 69% of American households were homeowners in 2004. Owning a home has many benefits, most importantly your home is an investment that also provides a place to live, raise children and enjoy life. Since for most people a home is their largest investment, it may also be the most intimidating purchase they make. That's where a good realtor can help.
If you are considering buying a home, start by considering your situation. Are you to make a long term commitment to homeownerships? What's a comfortable amount of space for your family? How much can you afford in a monthly mortgage payment? Be sure to check out our mortgage calculator for help in this area.
Now that you've got the basics, it's time to start your wish list. Start by identifying a set of minimum requirements for your new home. This list should include all the amenities that are essential for your family to live in the home. Things like distance from work, access to public transportation, or a large fenced lot might be included in your minimum requirements. Once you've listed the essentials, you can begin to prioritize the other features that your family would enjoy. Make sure that your new home will fit the way you live, with space and amenities for the whole family. View my sample list for ideas to get you started.
