Buying a house is one of the most important decision that we have to make in our life. Besides, serving as a home for our family, a house also comes with a long-term financial liability (for most of us, except you are rich enough to purchase it in cash). Therefore, it is extremely crucial for us to consider every possibility before we actually putting in our hard-earned cash into a property that you are soon to call your home.
Here are the 4 MOST important things to consider before placing deposit for a house:
Evaluating the Neighborhood
Nobody want to live with neighbor from the hell. Just imagine when you are about to doze off, the house next door is having party and making plenty of noise in the wee hours and this happens almost every night! The best is to have a stroll around the neighborhood and survey on the surrounding – look out for the nearby amenities such as public transportation, school, market and etc. & ensure they are all within reach. Try making small chat with people living there as well.
The Space You Need
Never get a big house if you do not need the space as a bigger house means larger space to maintain, higher utilities & maintenance bill and obviously higher price as well.
Choose a House You Can Afford Now
The major no-no is getting a house beyond your affordability as it will cripple your financial. Yes, we know that you will be getting raises & bonuses down the road. But, remember there is always things that come unexpectedly in life such as marriage, children, illness and etc. Therefore, always making sure there is some room in your budget to standby for the rainy day.
Getting a Good Realtor
Many soon-to be homeowners tried looking for a new house upon themselves in order to save them a few bucks (realtors’ commission). But, do you know, acquiring the correct & proper help can actually save you a lot of time. Old saying, Time is Gold. Thus, it is vital to choose your realtor carefully. Find out what kind of experience they have, do not afraid to ask plenty of questions (remember, you are the boss) and speak to different realtors before you decide who to pick.
