Decide To Buy: If it is the right time for you. A home purchase, for most, is a big step an will affect your financial future and your life. Make sure it's the right move for you. Not everyone needs to own, especially in this more mobile society. If it works for you then go for it.
Decide on your needs and what you want. What will best suite your needs, a house or condo: something new or resale or historic: what do you need: a yard, or a shorter commute, how many baths and bedroom. What is your lifestyle. Set your priorities.
Hire An Agent and put your team together: Choose a full time agent with experience and in the know, one who provides value and fair representation.
Secure Financing: How much can you afford. This is just as important if not more so then the home itself. Take into consideration not just the mortgage payment, but the maintenance as well.
Prepare A Strategy and Search for Homes: search Phoenix homes online, take a drive and ask lots of questions, ignore the furniture, remember that paint is cheap and trust you intuition.
Secure A Home: find a deal and make an offer. There is a fair price to pay and sometimes it can be a deal.
Perform Due Diligence: you have seen the home, now do the research on the condition, the neighborhood details and anything else that's of material matter.
Work on the mortgage: Get a loan that matches your needs and always overshoot for time frames. Also remember not to change anything in your finances without consulting you mortgage broker and your agent.
Close the transaction: Once your due diligence is done and everything is ready and agreed up the home may close and become your. When the seller signs and you sign and it's recorded publicly the home is yours.
Plan your future: A home will need the be maintained to retain and grow its value.
One of the ways you to improve value is through a home protection system; Home Security Team provides ADT security systems, which feature 24/7 home monitoring services.
