Buying a Bend Oregon Home is one of the most exciting things you will have the opportunity to do in your life, and will allow you to finally be able to enjoy all of the benefits that come from home ownership.
Although you’re excited about buying a home, try to avoid making these three mistakes with your home purchase.
1 – Failing To Get Pre-Approved For a Mortgage Loan
One of the first things you should do when buying a home is get pre-approved for a mortgage loan instead of pre-qualified.
This step is important, as it will give you the budget you can work with and confidence in knowing which homes you can really afford.
2 – Failing To Plan For the Future
As important as it is to buy a home, you must think about the type of home you’re buying and how it will affect your future.
Do you plan on getting married in the future?
Will the home offer you plenty of room for your family?
Are your guests going to be comfortable when they visit you?
These are questions you should be asking yourself, especially if you’re committed to living in the same home for the next 10 to 30 years.
Mistake 3 – Failing To Get a Home Inspection
Lasly, but most important, don’t fail to get a home inspected before you purchase it.
The home inspection will potentially save you tens of thousands of dollars and the hassle of purchasing a home which needs major repairs.
