First time homebuyers for a Windsor home usually have many questions. That’s always a good thing. It is important that you go into the process completely comfortable with the entire procedure. Asking questions is the responsible thing to do. Hopefully, you will have a professional real estate agent take the time needed to make sure you have the latest in up to date information. So what are the top questions? Here are just a few that we hear and happy to answer:
1. How Long Should It Take To Find A Home?
The good news is, by the time a first time homebuyer contacts a real estate agent, they have already done much of the shopping themselves via the Internet. Almost 80% of all home searches begin on the computer. The goal of the agent is to act on what you want. Many motivated buyers find a home within a few weeks, some in a few days. Those that take months and years aren’t motivated.
2. How Many Homes Will I See?
A buyer looking for a Windsor home often wonders if they need to see every home on the market. The answer, of course, is no. If a buyer has done their research on the Internet, decided on the neighborhood and what features he desires, he may only need to see a handful. If you see anything more than 20 homes, chances are, you will forget the most specific details. Concentrate on a few and let your agent guide you through the process.
3. What If I Like The First Home I See?
This can be tricky. Many realtors say buy the first Windsor home you like in case it’s not available should you want to look around. However, it’s never a bad idea to look at a few homes just to be on the safe side. Buyer’s remorse often happens because a buyer did not take some time to see a few homes before deciding. It’s a good idea also to view your top choices a second time before buying that first home. Have your real estate agent contact the seller’s agent and find out how motivated they are to sell the home.
