Buying

Becoming a homeowner comes with many benefits and allows you to build equity, save money for the future and create a forever home with your family. Whether you’re buying a house, land or a commercial space, purchasing real estate is a great investment. Below are a few tips from our team for when it comes time to find your dream home.



Decide To Buy

Before making any decisions, take the time to determine if you’re ready to buy a home. Ask yourself a few questions: What are your personal reasons for moving? Do you have enough finances to cover a down payment or moving costs? Can you afford a monthly mortgage on top of your other bills? Do you need a tax break? Questions like these will help guide you towards making the best decision for your current situation.



Get Organized

It’s important to get your finances in order before buying any real estate. We suggest getting approved for a loan so you know what you can afford to buy and gather together any important documents that may be requested of you. Organize the listings you are pursuing and take the time to perform inspection reports. Maintaining organization when purchasing new property can go a long way in making the process much more efficient.



Protect Yourself

Before completing the order of purchase, be sure to include a few conditions in the contact that will allow you to cancel the sale or get a refund should something go wrong. A few conditions you should include are: a financial contingency, an inspection contingency and a title-inspection contingency. Our team will help you understand the contract and make sure you’re protected.

Selling

Becoming a homeowner comes with many benefits and allows you to build equity, save money for the future and create a forever home with your family. Whether you’re buying a house, land or a commercial space, purchasing real estate is a great investment. Below are a few tips from our team for when it comes time to find your dream home.



Address the Financial Issues

Determine the tax implications that will come with the sale and diligently record all of your repairs and improvements.



Look at your home from a buyer’s perspective

Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes and view your home from a different lense. Is your home adequately cleaned and free of clutter? Do your heating, cooling and plumbing systems operate well? Is your home outdated and require a lot of maintenance? If your answers to these questions don’t meet your standards, your home likely won’t appeal to buyers and updates will be necessary.



Understand the Competition

Our team at The Bixler Group, LLC will gladly gather comparative data for your area. We’ll tour the competition with you and determine a realistic price for your home.



Set the Stage for Buyers

A key step in preparing your home to sell is to set the stage for a buyer’s arrival to an open house or tour. Add some curb appeal, make your home warm and welcoming and don’t set any unnecessary showing restrictions.
