What the buyer sees when he first looks at your home for sale, stays with him for a long time. Be sure your home makes a good first impression. Don't ignore the front yard and entry way of your home. Buyers who see a home for sale that looks unappealing from the outside, just move along to the next listing without ever going through the door! Once the buyer goes through the door, staging your home with a few decorating changes will help him feel this is a home he might want to live in.
First time home buyers enhance their chances of getting a mortgage by saving some money ahead of time. It is important to have cash on hand to cover all costs associated with buying a home. Some things to consider are: down payment, closing costs, moving costs, cash reserves to cover the first few months payments and mathematical errors in budgeting or over estimating earnings.
Buying a house is exciting! Buyers are often caught up in the moment and in the throes of making an immediate decision whether or not to buy, don’t usually look any further down the road than that.
The Buyer should consider the following when choosing a home with good resale in mind: locations not backing onto busy streets, avoiding intersecting street corner locations, a house that is not necessarily the most expensive one on the street and be sure all essential shops and services are located nearby with a local shopping centre that is healthy and busy.
