3 Mistakes in Buying a Home

Mistake No. 1 – Thinking you can’t afford it.   Real estate values have always risen steadily.  Of course there are peaks and valleys, but the long-term trend is a consistent overall increase.  So why rent when you can accumulate equity through home ownership? There are also tax advantages. Even if you have little money for a downpayment, or credit problems, chances are that you can still buy that new home.  It just comes down to knowing the right strategies and working with the right people.

Mistake No. 2 –  Not hiring a buyer’s agent to represent you.   An expert’s experience is key to making your purchase work well — finding the right fit for you. Buying property is a complex and stressful task.  Real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated.  New technology, laws, procedures and competition from other buyers require buyer agents to perform at an ever-increasing level of professionalism.  We at Roots Home Inspection deal with hundred of realtors on a regular basis — f you need referral to a realtor in your area contact us.
