NEW-HOME BUYING CONSIDERATIONS

To get started, here are some useful resources, tips, and ideas to help you build or find your perfect home.

Make Your Wish List – What are the things you love about your current home? What have you always wanted to change? If you’re in the market for your first home, what are your must-haves? Think about how many rooms you’d like, large gathering spaces you’d enjoy, or the size of your kitchen. Include a flex space to make your own home office or play room and consider special areas for your growing family or furry friends!

Get Your Finances in Order – What’s your budget? What are you pre-qualified for? We can put you in contact with a local lender to see a list of financial considerations you may not be thinking of when buying a new home.

Consider using a Certified New Home Specialist and Residential Construction Certified agent. Mica holds both these distinguished certifications. Buying a new home is more than just doing an online search – it’s about knowing an area and understanding the process. A REALTOR can offer organized, professional guidance that ultimately means less stress for you. Meet The Team
