20 December 2021

Whether you are buying a home for the first time, or if it has simply been a long time since you hit the real estate market for a place to live, a buying strategy is going to prove to be essential. Think of the need to create a strategy for buying a home as your foundation. With a strong foundation that keeps several vital elements to buying a home in mind, you should be able to avoid many of the headaches and potential pitfalls that await home buyers, particularly first-time buyers.

Having a difficult time building your strategy? Don’t worry. There are several key things you can do, in order to get things off on the right foot.

Its really important to not get too stressed out about building your strategy to not only find a home that suits your needs, but a home that suits your budget, as well. Keep in mind the following tips, and you should have this foundation we were talking about:

  • Mortgage broker: While you don’t need a mortgage broker, it can make things a whole lot easier. A mortgage broker is going to help you understand all of the particulars that define the experience of getting your first home loan.
  • Personal finances: No one can predict the future. We’re certainly not asking you to do that. However, we will advise you to take the best long-term view of your finances possible. You may even want to look into the services of a financial planner.
  • The market: Again, this isn’t about doing things you aren’t qualified to do, or are incapable of doing. It is still highly naïve to assume the market is going to remain static. You don’t have to be a financial expert, an economics professor, or a real estate agent to ascertain a basic understanding of the market in your area. A little research can go a long way.
  • Stick to the budget: A little above is okay, and anything below your budget, while still sticking to what you want, is obviously ideal. However, you really want to take every step possible to stick with the budget you’re going to create. Learn to walk away from something that sounds great, but still takes you way out of what you can afford.
  • Clear out some debt: Debt-free is obviously the dream. Barring that, anything that qualifies as a substantial improvement from your current standing is nice, too.

As always, we recommend speaking to your YNM Real Estate agent to find the best strategy and home buying solution for you!
