My Home Buying Tips


One: 
Research city neighborhoods yourself by contacting local the police department or drive around during different times of the day.

Two: 
Expect lower maintenance costs with a brand-new home.  

Three: 
When interest rates are low, opt for a fixed mortgage. 

Four: 
You can deduct on that years tax return points paid by either party on the purchase of your own residence. 

Five: 
Pay attention to the original listing date of the homes you inspect; sellers tend to be more flexible in the price the longer the home is on the market. 

Six: 
Buying a house whose style is uniquely individual will probably minimize rather than maximize its resale value because the house will appeal to a somewhat more limited number of potential buyers. 

Seven: 
If you think you may need more space in the near future, be sure the house and lot will allow for expansion. 

Eight: 
A roof that complements the style of a home and is carefully maintained adds to the home's visual appeal and its resale value.

Nine: 
Wood floors suggest warmth, quality, and good taste and are an asset when it comes time to sell a house. 

Ten: 
Always overlook paint, wallpaper, and carpet.  These are inexpensive changes. 

Eleven: 
Even if the quality of a school district doesn't matter to you now, remember it might someday to another buyer. 

Twelve: 
Most home shoppers prefer a combination of ceramic tile and vinyl as a covering for bathroom walls, creating a positive effect on the house's resale value. Ceramic tile is usually installed wherever water comes in contact with the wall. 

Thirteen: 
Remember: trees enhance the beauty and value of a lot and house. 

Fourteen: 
Homes with a pleasant view of the horizon often sells at a premium above similar homes without the view.

Fifteen: 
House size: If you buy a small or medium house for the neighborhood, the larger homes can help pull up your value.  Buying what you need in a more prestigious neighborhood may provide more financial reward that getting what you want in a less desirable neighborhood.  

Sixteen: 
Three or four bedrooms houses are the most popular among homebuyers.  There should always be at least two bathrooms, or the opportunity for 2 bathrooms via a finished basement.

Seventeen: 
Walk in closets are extremely desirable for the master bedroom. 

Eighteen: 
Garages are always a plus, especially with Wisconsin winters.

Nineteen: 
Laundry facilities should be located somewhere where it doesn't create an eyesore.  Think about whether you want to walk up and down stairs when carrying loads of laundry. 

Twenty: 
Family and social activities often center around the kitchen, so this is the most important room of the house. 

Twentyone: 
Fireplaces are nice to have.  A fireplace in the family room will be used often.  A fireplace in the living room may be nice, but you pay extra for it and will probably rarely use it. 

Twentytwo: 
Swimming pools do not provide as much added value as they once did.  Buy a home with a pool for your own enjoyment, not as an investment. 

Twentythree: 
Basements with walk out exposure add approximately $10,000 to sales price. 

Twentyfour: 
Most buyers sell within 5 years of owning.
