GET A REAL ESTATE AGENT
You may be tempted to go through the process on your own not even knowing the benefits can be provided at no cost to you. However, if you have limited experience going model house-comparing or negotiating contracts, not having a professional at your side can be dangerous.
Your real estate agent can help you find homes that meet your needs, schedule model home showings, and can help you determine if the total base price & upgrades the builders are asking is fair.
BUY FOR TOMORROW
While that small little starter home in a rural area may look great to a young couple, it may not look so fabulous after a few years, a couple of kids, and a job change.
You can’t completely anticipate all the life changes that will occur, but if you’ve got plans to get married, have kids, or even just adopt a gaggle of pets, make sure that you’re accounting for the needs of those plans when building a new construction home in Gilbert.
BUY ONLY WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD
Mortgage companies want you to take out a large mortgage, as they make more money when they lend you more money. However, if you’ll struggle to pay that mortgage each month, you’re putting yourself in a bad financial position.
Think long and hard about how much you truly can afford to spend and only buy a house up to that line, not over.
ADD THE EXTRAS
Buying your first house in Gilbert isn’t purely about the cost of your monthly mortgage payments. You’ve still got to pay taxes, HOA fees, utilities, insurance, repairs, and more.
Try to get a ballpark idea of the total cost of ownership of the home using public records and the current owners’ utility bills, then add that amount onto the monthly mortgage payment. Make sure the total is a number you’re comfortable paying each month.
NEGOTIATE & COMPARE
When it comes to buying a home, it’s not only about the base price listed on the website. It is lot premiums, design center & landscaping costs. every builder does it a little but differently.
Also, if there’s something that needs to be repaired or replaced, we are there every step of the way through walk though and punch lists advocating for your interests!
