5 Things to Consider When Buying a Home

When it comes to buying a house, the phrase, “different strokes for different folks” applies in a major way. Everyone has a wish list and different needs for their family or personal situation. However, there are some major “do’s and don’t’s” in the world of buying a house, and we’re here to help you make the best possible outcome in one of the biggest financial decisions of your life.

  1. Use us as your real estate team. We love Lafayette, IN, and we know all its nooks and crannies. The Romanski Group is knowledgeable in the current housing market, and they stay up to date with all the houses hitting the market, making you the first to know about new inventory! We can even help you identify potential problems within the houses you look at. Don’t make the mistake of trying to do this alone!
  2. Look beyond paint. Wall paper, paint, and other cosmetic decor that you don’t like in a house can all be changed. Check out the larger, more expensive fixes that might need some love in the near future!
  3. Know the neighborhoods. Before you begin looking, have an idea of what you want in a neighborhood or community.
  4. Get pre-approved. Know where to begin for a price point! Be ready to make an offer with a pre-approval letter when you find that perfect house – it’s very possible you may be in a bidding war and a pre-approval letter is critical to getting your offer accepted. Mortgage lenders can help you figure your debt to income ratio and figure the monthly payment for you on every home you look at. Mortgage rates are actually at an all time low right now, and we can’t encourage you enough to figure out more of what that means! We enjoy working with Ruoff Mortgage.

  5. Purchase a house you know you can afford. Purchasing a home enables you to have financial freedom- if you do it wisely.

House hunting is one of the most exciting times of your life!
