Tips for Home Buyers

Home Buying/Investing

As a first time home buyer, the process of buying a home or investment generally starts with determining your buying power; that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. After providing Pack 1st Properties with some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, we can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you.

Finding Properties

Once you know how much you can and want to invest, the next step is to find the properties that most nearly fit your needs. Pack 1st has many resources to assist you in this search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market. As your Realtor® we will investigate to find all available properties.

Choosing Your Home

Your job is to make the final selection of the right property for you. This is when excitement and emotion run high. Pack 1st will assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. We have access to a variety of informational resources and can provide local community information on utilities, zoning and schools, etc.

We will help you to be informed and at ease, especially with these important questions:

Will the property provide the environment you want for a home or investment?
Will the property have resale value when you are ready to sell?

Negotiations When Buying

There are a myriad of negotiating factors, including, but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession, and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement should also provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Pack 1st Properties can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.
