11 High Cost Inspection Traps You Should Know About

According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale.

Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home.

In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for. And knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones.

Save at Least $5,000 on Your Next Home Purchase

While many agents will promise to help buyers find the best home and the best price the reality of the real estate market is that this simply doesn’t always happen. Even if they do find the perfect home, the homebuyer, many times, ends up paying more than what they really wanted to in order to purchase the home.

Fortunately one local real estate agent has created a Guaranteed Cash Savings Program solving this problem for area home buyers. This program guarantees, upfront and in writing, the buyer will not over pay for the home they want. You will save at least $5,000 on the home you want to buy or the agent will step in and cover the difference.*

Before you hire any real estate agent you should research the market to find out who can do the best job for you. When interviewing agents, find out what kind of written guarantee they are willing to give you with respect to buying your next home. In a market where many homes sell for more than the asking price or above the market value, a guarantee ensuring you will not over pay is critical. Unfortunately, you’ll find that most agents simply cannot make such a guarantee.

To help you learn more about how to save at least $5,000 on your next home purchase (giving you more peace of mind) a FREE special report has been prepared entitled “Guaranteed Cash Savings on Your Home Purchase”.

Does location top style when buying real estate? Survey says…

When buying real estate, which factor comes out ahead: location, or style of home?

“Location, location, location,” has always been the mantra of real estate. It makes perfect sense that the “where” of the property takes precedence over style, since location is something you can’t change. Location is also the one feature that seems to affect every other aspect of your life – the time spent commuting for business or pleasure; where the kids will go to school; daily recreation, entertainment and errands; and of course, future resale value.

However, when buying real estate you can’t discount the importance of features. While you can always renovate a home to add bedrooms and living space, not everyone wants to take on that commitment, expense and inconvenience of it all. For these home hunters, features such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, storage space and lot size matter as much as location.

The great debate continues: what’s more important when it comes to buying real estate? The style and size? Or the neighbourhood?

New Homes VS. Resale

10 Secrets Every New Home Buyer Should Know

Although most homes for sale are resales, one out of four homebuyers purchases a new home. Which is better: existing or new?

The right answer, of course, is up to you. Both resales and new homes offer advantages. Existing homes are less expensive on average, and are generally closer to, and enjoy the warmth and surroundings of, established neighbourhoods. New homes, on the other hand, offer innovative use of space, modern energy efficiency, and choices of options and upgrades. What’s more, everything is new – even the neighbours.

The choice that’s right for you depends on many things: your finances, your family composition and your taste. The fact of the matter is, most buyers consider both new and resale homes before they decide.

A new special report has just been released which identifies 10 secrets every new home buyer should know, including little-known buyer advantages that most builders won’t divulge unless pressed.
