When viewing a home, bring a digital camera and begin a series of photos with a close-up of the house. Also, pay attention to the home’s surroundings. What’s next door? Do the neighbors take care of their property? I encourage my Buyer clients to make notes and rate each property on a scale of 1 to 10. This will help you categorize the ones you think may be worth a second glance. Another helpful hint is to write down the pros and cons of each house you see. Don’t be afraid to take your time. Buying a home is a large investment.
The number one tip when buying a home is to ALWAYS ALWAYS be represented by a REALTOR! Its our job to look out for your best interests. Your REALTOR can help you in so many ways. Don’t make such a large investment without your own representation. Even if you are building a home/buying new construction.please remember that YOU NEED YOUR OWN REALTOR! The on-site sales agent works for the builder, NOT for you. No matter how nice you may think they are, there role is to get the builder the highest price possible for that property. Having your own Buyers agent is a free service in the state of Georgia. Don’t be caught without one!
When you’re ready to begin your home buying process, give me a call. I’d be honored to help you. In the meantime, please feel free to search all homes for sale in the greater Savannah GA area. http://www.greatersavannahhomes.com/
