If you want to buy a home, knowing what to expect makes everything easier.
Buying a home is unlike any other type of purchase. After all, you don’t typically drive up to a home for sale, ask how much it costs, and pull out your debit card to buy it. The homebuying process begins with shopping for a mortgage and ends with closing on the home—with a bunch of steps in between. It can seem pretty complicated, but if you know what to expect, the whole process goes much more smoothly.
By using these easy and inexpensive tips, you can expect an offer in no time.
Whether you’re selling in a buyer’s or seller’s market, selling your home can be stressful. Week after week of showings require your house to be presentable at all times, not to mention the hassle of vacating at a moment’s notice. If you have pets or children, that stress is multiplied. But buyers will be most interested in your home the first few weeks it’s on the market — so you need to hit the ground running and sell before your listing grows stale.
