The Godfrey Real Estate Group: 6 Steps to Buying a Home

6 Steps to Buying a Home the Right Way

It is now 2013 and home buyers are coming out of the wood-work daily. What most people do not know though is the long and enduring process of buying a home. It can be taxing and down right strenuous when you try to complete this feat alone. With the help of the Godfrey Real Estate Group, we have composed 6 steps to complete when buying a home.

1. Don’t buy if you can’t stay put.

Only commit to purchasing a home if you are positive that you will stay put for a few years. With the amount of time and commitment involved in owning, taking care of and paying for your property, a long term investment is necessary.

2. Start by increasing your credit.

A mortgage is a necessity when buying a home. Start by increasing your credit any way how in order to get a better interest rate. And remember, always pay towards the principal when you have extra cash to pay.

3. Aim for a home within your budget.

2.5 times your annual salary is the ideal range that you can afford. To be safe, stick to the lower end of that spectrum. The less you own, the less you will have to pay. Know your budget and do not over pay.

4. If you can’t put down the usual 20 percent, a loan is still a possibility.

Just because you are not able to put down the industry standard 20 percent does not mean that you are out of luck. Speak with your realtor and see what you can do about the loan.

5. Buy in a district with good schools.

Strong school districts always help your property value. Even though this may be a long term purchase, you must think about the future and any possible variables that could come your way.

6. Get professional help.

A professional Keller Williams Sunset Corridor agent is always the best bet when purchasing a home. Even home buyers that are more experienced in the process will still run in to unprecedented issues that were unforeseen. Use a realtor and save the hassle.

As you can see, purchasing a home is a large time consuming commitment that can be over-whelming for anyone to tackle alone. At the Godfrey Real Estate Group, we allow our buyers and sellers to enjoy an easy transition from home to home as we will handle all the work for you. Don’t make the mistake countless Americans do daily, hire an experienced realtor and enjoy how smooth the process really is!

It’s a “nail-biting” time at Komen Kansas City. We are in the middle of the process for choosing our upcoming grant recipients. Last November, we received 19 applications from organizations across our 17-county service area. All are geared at the long-term goal of making a significant impact on breast cancer in our community.

Awarding grants is no easy process. When I first started at Komen, I remember thinking to myself, “This has to be the greatest job in the world. It has to be easier to give out the funding than to be on the grant writing end of the request!” The greatest job in the world, for me, has been true….the latter of my statement is another story! You see, the grantees we work with and even many of the applicants who do not get funded on any given…

Tips for 2013 Home Sellers

Matt Sundermier's Memos on Real Estate & on Life

Now is the Time to Move-Up – If you’ve been hanging on to that smaller house a little longer than planned, now is the time to sell and move-up to the bigger house.  Entry-level homes are in tremendous demand from investors and 1st-timers, while mid-range homes are not moving quite as quickly.  Homes under 1600 square feet went up 23% in Sacramento County last year, compared to 15% for larger homes 1600-2600 square feet.  This allows you to command the highest price possible for your old home, and better chances of scoring a deal on your next house.

Make Demands – This isn’t about greed or bullying, but today’s market enables sellers to be very firm on what terms they accept.  Don’t be bashful about waiving appraisal contingencies, demanding higher deposit amounts, and listing at aggressive prices.

Know the Code (tax code, that is) – The tax rules…

10 Things New Agents Should Do

Real Estate ... in a Nutshell

10 Things New Agents Should Do

Get face to face with people. Real estate has more to do with people than it does with land and houses. Spend time with your friends, volunteer at church, go to your child’s soccer games, and help organize the neighborhood picnic. This is where business begins … when you learn about the changes that are occurring in people’s lives.

Learn the inventory and the forms. People come to you because they expect you to know the inventory or at least have the ability to use the MLS to match their needs to suitable properties. Attend Realtor lunches, stop by open houses, and go on caravan if your firm still previews new listings. Learn how to use Zipforms and electronic signatures because clients need you to do these things.

Become a pricing specialist. Whether listing new properties or working as a buyer agent…
