Congratulations! You’ve found your dream home. Perhaps it’s a model on a builder’s page—or maybe it’s one of the new homes for sale in Olathe. Regardless, the time to act is now.
Calculate Your Budget
Before you start house hunting, you need to know how much you can borrow. Meeting with a loan officer will help you get a better idea of your current financial picture and your buying power.
Don’t forget to calculate your budget to include closing costs, home maintenance costs, and moving expenses.
Get a Real Estate Agent
A real estate agent helps you navigate the process of making an offer and finally purchasing your dream home. While you can buy a home without a real estate agent, it’s dangerous.
Your agent will be able to give you experience and knowledge-based advice regarding your purchase. Don’t use the same agent as the seller, as they are primarily interested in helping their own client. Instead, you can find a buyer’s agent at a local real estate firm.
Explore Your Options
Though you may have spotted your dream home, that might not be your only option. Looking at other properties and remaining open to the possibilities is the best way to make sure you make the right decision. In addition to looking at comparable properties in the area, consider the benefits of building a home from scratch.
Finding your dream home is the first step: once you know what you want, everything else will fall into place. Meanwhile, whether you’re at the beginning or middle of your homebuying journey, exploring your development options can help.
