What are some good home-buying tips?

Have a plan.

Limit yourself to the number of model homes and neighborhoods you visit in a day. Make notes and take photos about what you like and don’t like about each model home. This will help you keep the different home plans separate and you will be less confused at the end of the day.

Understand the benefits of buying vs. renting.

Building equity in your new home is like having a savings account. Another advantage that first-time homebuyers may not realize until they purchase is that a new home has tax advantages. You will save money by owning a home vs. renting. First-time homebuyers who are renting should buy a home as quickly as possible. There are special mortgages available for first-time homebuyers.

Ask the home builder about their process.

Make sure that the home builder can easily explain to you what is involved and what your responsibilities are in purchasing a new home.

Apply for a mortgage early and lock in your mortgage rate late.

Many home builders expect verification that you qualify to purchase a new home before they even begin to build your home. However, you must be very careful not to lock your mortgage rate too soon. The rate lock must be good through your home closing, so make sure to not lock your loan until you have a guaranteed closing date on your new home.

Have fun.

Building a new home means that you get to pick all of the interior finishes for your new home. Many people choose to build a new home over buying a used home because of this reason. Building a new home should be fun and exciting – especially for first time homebuyers. Don’t let stress get in the way of building your dream.
