A common point of confusion for people when they are purchasing a home is how long the home buying process will actually take. Buying a house is an emotional process, it involves the family, wife and kids, and it has to do with everyone aspirations to settle down in the house of one’s dreams: priceless” as one of credit card advertisement simply would put it. But buying a house is also (or should be) a rational process as it could stretch the finances and put unnecessary stress and risks on the family.
The worry about searching for open houses, looking at prospective properties, short listing them according to your individual list of advantages and disadvantages, going through the short listed homes over and over, unable to choose, and once selected, studying the needed set of discussions in all their awkwardness, all this, is what you join, when buying a house, and just how well you do in every these stages becomes the key efficient factor behind just how a house you end up obtaining.
Typically offered by affordable housing organizations or nonprofit groups, a good home buying class will walk you through the various steps of the home buying process in your state and introduce you to the dramatis personae you’ll be working with (including a real estate agent, home inspector, mortgage lender, insurance agent, and real estate attorney).
At the second one there was a house a few doors down with yellow police tape still fluttering in the wind and the house right next door had a dirt pit for a lawn due to the two large pitbulls furiously yelping and any and all cars that past…didn’t even get out of the car at this one as I thought $325,000 was a lot to live next to Mike Vick’s new house and dog fighting emporium.
The rest of the house quite stunningly complimented the formerly pink carpet, actually as it was so bad that I actually declared that disasterous carpet the best thing in the house. Remember that the more you educate yourself about the process beforehand, the less stressful it will be, and the more likely you will be to get the house you want for a price you can afford – and with a smile on your face. While your dream house may cost too much for now, you don’t necessarily want to be below these ratios. From what I see, buying a property isn’t the main issue but the issue is with getting the loan approved.
