How do I get the Best Home for the Lowest Price?

Price is only one of several factors to consider when you purchase a home.

Preferences:  Make two lists with one outlining your needs and the other a list of your wants.  Compare lists with other members of your family so you are agree on what’s important before you start looking.

Budget:  Get pre-approved by a qualified loan officer before your search to find out what monthly mortgage payment is possible given your debt and income.

Location:  The “best” price is usually not the cheapest price.  Desirable locations demand higher prices.  But communities with higher prices also often retain their value the best.

Negotiation:  Inexperienced buyers sometimes want to “lowball” their initial offer.  Too often they end up disappointed for a variety of reasons such as competition with other buyers, a negative reaction from the seller, and the need to start all over again if negotiations fail.
