How To Purchase Your Dream Home

We bet you have gone by a beautiful home with a “for sale” sign on it and knew that it was “the one.” Trust us, we have all been there. But what if the price is higher than your budget? Fortunately, you can bring the price down and close the deal faster than ever before. Want to learn how? Here is a look at the 5 simple steps to getting the perfect deal.

1 – Visit the Home
The first thing you need to do is visit the home and take a closer look at its condition. You need to know what needs to be fixed, adjusted or changed. Remember to make a quick list.

2 – Get a few Quotes
With your list, you need to get a few quotes. For example, if you felt that the paint is old and a new coat is needed, calculate its cost or get a quote. That way, you can use it to reduce the price of the home.

3- Seek Professional Advice
With your quotes and list in hand, contact a professional and get their opinion on it. Ask them whether the price can be reduced and by how much.

4 – Let the Home Owner Know
Once you have all your information compiled, visit the home again and bring your information to the owners knowledge. This is where a bit of negotiation skills come in handy. You need to let them know that you are interested but the home is priced too high. Let them know what is wrong with it, how much you will have to spend after purchasing it (even if you don’t) and what you think a fair price is.

5 – Sign on the Dotted Line!
That last thing you need to do is shake on it, get a mortgage and sign on the dotted line. Simple?
