While perusing the blog of one of our sister companies in the Enterprise Network, Helen Adams Realty, in Charlotte, N.C., we stumbled across a video we had to share with you on today’s OTD. This video, from HGTV’s Front Door, outlines the seven biggest things to think about when you’re house hunting.
Even though Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter, we know going to start feeling like spring pretty soon in D-FW. We’ve already told you what spring means– the peak of the residential real estate market. After you find your realtor, you should keep these things in mind during your house hunt. It’s important not to waste your time driving all around town without some sort of game plan in mind. Here are the short points, but watch the video for full details.
1. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
2. Work with an expert.
3. Figure out fair market value of the property.
4. Compare home prices.
5. Future renovations will increase the value of a home.
6. You don’t have to buy new.
7. Don’t buy on emotion alone.
Bonus: Scout your location at different times of day.
