Suggestions For Buying A Baltimore Home

 

Recently met a young professional couple, expecting their first child. When they heard I was in Real Estate, they asked for some tips in buying a home.

Well I could write a book Real Estate the Rome Way (already done) or  just  another blog.

My first suggestion..check out "Win the Lottery"  so they can know what's really important to them both.

 

We didn't win the lottery

 

 

Following this exercise,

I had  more than a few questions.

 

questions 

 

What location are you thinking about?

What counties would you consider?

How long do you plan on being in this home?    

How important is the proximity to work, schools and the arts?

Will you be selling in the next 2-4 years?

What type a house Colonial, Ranch, Split level, Contemporary, THS or Condo?

How much land? 

What price range?

Do you need a mortgage or will you be paying cash? 

Do you have a lender?

 

This was just the beginning and look forward to speaking with them again soon.

Of course they have my website to search properties and the information about my Sunday radio show. 

And later I will share ways how we find the right house.

Thinking about buying a home.

Hi Margaret,
Those buyers were lucky to cross paths with you to guide them.  I'm sure you will help them find their perfect first home.

The buyers certainly know how to choose an agent. I'm sure they will find the right house too - it's The Rome Way.

The home search usually begins with narrowing down what it is you are looking for and how long you plan to be in the home.  Of course, winning the lottery would be a great kick off to a house hunt.

Chris Ann Cleland It is fun to start off the process with "winning the lottery"! 

And hope you have had a good weekend.

That's a good set of questions and suggestions, Margaret.  I checked out the "Win the Lottery" link, but it is apparently broken!

Thanks Myrl Jeffcoat The broken link is now fixed because of you.
