How much should you spend on a new home?

How much should you spend on a new home?

As a real estate agent I am not the one who should answer that question.

While most real estate agents get paid based on commission it is not my desire to ever “over sell” a buyer.   I want my buyers to be satisfied with the property they purchase and the price they paid.   I want them to call on me again.  I want them to refer me to friends, co-workers, acquaintances who ask  for a recommendation on a Brevard County real estate agent!

So how much can you afford to spend when considering the purchase of a home in Brevard County, Florida?

The answer is best determined through a process whereby the buyer considers their long term plans (job security, lifestyle changes, debt, space requirements, etc.).

The answer is more than just “how much do you make?”

As a real estate professional I prefer to take a consultative approach when working with buyers in Brevard County.
  • I will provide the answers to buyer questions. 
  • I will refer to resources when I do not know the answer. 
  • I will ask questions to either get a response or cause the customer to ponder the answer. 
  • I will educate when necessary to inform.
But I will not tell a buyer how much they can afford to spend on a home.

Here are some numbers that matter when buying a home.... 

If you are considering buying a home in Brevard County, Florida, call me to discuss your needs and goals.   If you prefer, send me an email.
