Location, location, location. It’s the first rule of real estate and it’s usually the first thing people consider when looking to buy a home. Next might come the square footage, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms and so on. While these are all important factors, they don’t tell the whole story of your potential new home. Even homes in the best neighborhoods can come with tons of hidden — and often costly — maintenance issues. Yes, you’ll have a home inspection to help catch anything that doesn’t meet standards, but that comes at the end of the home buying process. Here is what to look for when buying a home.
When most people think of beginning the home buying or selling process, it tends to begin during the spring season. However, we know people relocate for many seen and unforeseen reasons, and they may need to buy or sell a home during the winter season. There are some things to consider when buying or selling a home in the winter. It can present challenges, so here are some tips on how to get it done and save money with Hero Rewards®.
