Buyers Resources

Buyer Resources - Gerri Ross- Realtor for the Washington Metropolitan area

Family with boxes The process of buying a home could take weeks or months to complete. In addition to your time investment, you also have to consider that a home is one of the largest expenditures you will ever undertake. Therefore, you need to gather as much information about a property as possible before you make a buying decision.

Get to Know Your Neighbors

The greatest home on the market isn't worth buying if you don't like your neighbors or don't like the amenities close to your home. For instance, if you see that the neighbors don't take care of their property or hear that they make noise early in the morning or late at night, you could find it difficult to enjoy living there.

The same may be true if your home isn't close to any good schools, major highways or entertainment options such as malls, stadiums or theaters. Working with your agent, you will receive relevant community information to help you learn more about your possible new surroundings.

Your Patience Could Pay Off

If you don't see a house that meets your needs currently on the market, it doesn't mean that you should settle for what is available. During the spring and summer months, new homes come on the market on a regular basis. Working with a real estate agent, you will get updates on homes for sale that meet your needs.

For instance, if you want a home with four bedrooms or a home that is at least 1500 square feet, you will get an alert whenever a home matching those criteria becomes available. Your agent will also have featured listings available to help you narrow your home search and save time house hunting.
