Economists are buzzing with claims that now is the time to buy a home.
According to MoneyWatch, prices remain 30 percent below their peak before the housing crash and mortgage rates are still hovering at all-time lows.
If you are thinking that now is the right time to purchase a new home, local Ramona-area developer, KirE Builders, Inc. has prepared 10 essential tips to keep in mind while shopping:
1.Gain a pre-approval from your lender.
2.Establish a budget.
3.Choose the builder, then the house. Good builders understand that reputation is everything.
4.Review the builder’s website for other developments for comparison.
5.Schedule an appointment or personal tour with the builder sales office.
6.Drive out and walk the property.
7.Ask the builder for a list of “standard amenities” as well as “upgrades and options available.”
8.Consider any pet requirements, usable space, special parking or RV areas that are specific to your family needs.
9.View numerous floor plans to determine the best fit for you or your family.
10.Secure your desired home by placing a deposit on the specific house you like most.
