What’s one of the most exciting and important purchases you will ever make? It’s buying a home. A great place to consider making your purchase is in Mountain Home, Arkansas. The real estate agents at Gilbert Realty are always ready to guide you through the home-buying process. From spacious golf-course homes to rustic cabins nestled in the woods to stunning lakefront property, this area of the Ozark Mountains offers plenty of options.
Here are the first steps to take when you’re preparing to buy a house in scenic Mountain Home:
- Determine Your Budget: Find out how much you can afford and decide how much you want to spend. It helps to get pre-approved by a lender to establish affordability. Pre-approval also speeds up the loan approval process once you find a house you want. And remember: You don’t have to spend as much as you can afford. Make sure your budget includes your down payment, expenses for an appraisal and a home inspection, closing costs and fees, and moving expenses.
- Decide On Needs & Wants: Create your “must have” and “would love to have” lists. Does your list of needs squeeze your budget? Ask your real estate agent about area foreclosure homes that may offer financial breathing room.
- Select a Real Estate Agent: Look for a real estate agent who is familiar with the area and neighborhoods in which you want to buy your home. Your agent should be someone you can trust to help you make wise decisions, has a reputation for excellence, and is a skilled negotiator.
