Find the Right Home

Real Estate Agents
You can sit down with a real estate agent and discuss your needs, type
of area, style of home, amenities and everything you really want in your
next home. Real estate agents can help you by accessing a Listing Service
which covers all properties listed for sale within a specific area. Together,
you can select the homes you would like to see, set appointments and preview
homes in a short period of time. An agent can guide you through the entire
process.

 

Newspaper Ads/Internet
Many people go through the real estate classified section or browse the
Internet to find a home that appeals to them. However, your real estate
agent will have many listings available that may not appear in the newspaper
or Internet on a continuous basis. New listings come on the market daily.

 

Multiple Listing Service
Your real estate agent should have access to the multiple listing service
if it is available in your area. It usually includes the following details
about homes and properties for sale:

  • Location
  • Price
  • Photograph
  • Utilities
  • Amenities
  • Annual property tax
  • Current financing (when assumable)
  • Listing company

When Previewing A Home

  • Write notes when previewing a home so you will be able to discuss the
    details later with your real estate agent.
  • Ask questions about the home and discuss any objections or concerns
    you may have.
  • Ask about the community – schools, shopping and transportation.
  • Ask specific questions about the construction of the home; electrical,
    plumbing, heating, cooling systems, etc.

Have Fun
Relax. Finding your new home can be a rewarding experience. Have a good
time and enjoy the process.
