Your Chino Hills Real Estate Agents Want To Help!
Buying a house is a serious financial decision. Have you ever made a bigger purchase in your life? Because it is so significant, it is important that you do everything you can to avoid buyer’s remorse. After all, you do not want to be saddled with regret and payments on a house you do not love.
To help you avoid regret and find the perfect home, here is some advice from your Chino Hills real estate agents.
- Do Not Bust Your Budget. Make sure you have a clear idea of the full cost of homeownership; it is more than just the purchase price. Ask your agent to get an estimate of the year’s utility bills from the seller, and get estimates on repairs and maintenance to ensure your budget is accurate.
- Listen To Your Family. A home you love can quickly sour if your kids or partner hates it. Have each member of your family write their top three wants in your next house down so you can have that for reference as you shop for your next home.
- Be Honest. Sure, sometimes you just get cold feet. Other times, though, you have hesitancy about a home for a very legitimate reason. Never sit quietly with your uncertainties; share them with your agent and your family. You never want to get the keys to a house you are less than thrilled about, and your concerns could help you avoid a major mistake.
