Avoiding Home Purchase Mistakes

Doing your homework before you buy can make all the difference. Below are common mistakes to avoid when buying a home:

1. Not understanding the local real estate market to determine pricing and location options

2. Not narrowing your search to what is available in your price range

3. Not obtaining a proper home inspection to identify problem areas that could prove expensive

4. Not identifying all available financing options based on your monetary situation

5. Looking for the “perfect” home rather than the best home for your family’s needs

6. Not familiarizing yourself with local schools, shops and other neighborhood amenities

7. Making a major purchase or otherwise moving money around that could affect your credit rating

8. Buying before you sell, this can affect the down payment and could necessitate interim financing

9. Not buying with resale in mind
