Going shopping for a home or condo in Saint Petersburg Tampabay Florida
Buying property Step 4
Buying a house or condo in saint Petersburg. Exciting, you are finally ready to go out and look for your new home or condo.
Uuuuuuups, wait, did we talk about your time frame? How soon do you want or need to buy?
Do you have a few months time and can wait for a short sale or do you need a house next month because your new job starts soon and the kids have to change schools.
Time is an important factor when you want to buy property and make sure you talked about this with your Realtor.
Back to shopping. Your Realtor will do most of the searches for you, but you should also check the internet and see what is out there, e mail the listings you find to your agent and get his or her feedback on it. Try to get familiar with the market and the “What you can get for your money” Look at a few hand picked properties and tell your agent what you liked and did not like about it. In the real estate buying process it is all about communication, feedback and understanding. The more your Realtor knows about your WANTS and NEEDS and CANS the better feed back you give her or him the more effective the search will be.
Do not be afraid if the very first home you see is the one you like. If you found a great Realtor that listens to you and understands you and has a great knowledge of the neighborhood and inventory, there is a chance that the first home is YOUR home.Of course, go see some others and compare but, you might have found your new home already.
