Home Buying Process: Step 2

In Step 1 of the home buying process I discussed the need to get preapproved for the mortgage for your new home. Now that you have been preapproved and have a target price range, it's time to focus on your "wants" and "needs" for your new home.

Examples of needs could be:

  1. Number of bedrooms/bathrooms
  2. Location
  3. Number of stories
  4. Lot Size
  5. Garage
  6. Age of home

Examples of wants could be:

  1. Fenced yard
  2. Fireplace
  3. Screened Porch
  4. Color of Brick

Put all your thoughts on paper so that when the house hunting starts, you will be able to articulate these items to me so we can work together to pinpoint your new Greenville SC area home.  With over 5,000 homes for sale, this homework will take the stress out of your home search.

Watch for Step 3 of the home buying process coming soon.
