- Once you have gotten the loan pre-qualification you are ready start looking for your dream house.
The Right Property
As a first time homebuyer, you need to know what property is most convenient to you based on your current financial situation, and what your future plans are ahead. There are a few aspects you should consider when buying a house:
- Location: Where the property is located is a key factor. Easy access to freeways, shopping malls, schools, restaurants, downtowns, country clubs or sport facilities. Remember location brings most value to residential properties.
- Geographic areas: Hills, lakes or any kind of reserved land next to the property will bring solid value to the property.
- Property taxes: This aspect is important as some properties appreciate higher than others depending on location and county property assessment value. Remember, the higher the appreciation the higher the property taxes.
- Builders, year of built, subdivisions amenities, upgrades, and land use are also factors of value enhancements to properties.
