What are some of the most important things to remember about buying or selling a home?

What are some of the most important things to remember about buying or selling a home? 

That is a hard question to answer in one or two sentences so let me me suggest several items to consider when it comes to buying or selling a house or condo in Brevard County, Florida.
  • Deal with the finances first - period. 
  • The only thing that can not be changed later is location.  Choose wisely.
  • Work with one real estate agent only.  Remember buyers don't pay the real estate agent - sellers do.
  • Take your real estate agent with you to new construction models as well.
  • Don't spend as much as you "can" on your home.  Regardless of the direction often real estate market buying high is not good strategy.
  • Decide what your real requirements are and go from there. Then the pluses that separate homes will lead you to the right decision for you. 
  • Don't trust all you read when it comes to real estate (the MLS, seller disclosures, the mega- websites, etc).
  • Don't rely solely on what you "hear" someone say especially the know it all at work or family who knows everything!
  • Once a mortgage is pre-approved, freeze life as you know it.  Don't make major purchases, open new accounts, change jobs.
  • Can you go by the rules?  Homeowner associations exist to maintain uniformity and conformity.  
The above general comments do not cover everything.  For everything else, call your local Realtor®.
