Buying a home is one of the most important steps we take in our lives, so we have to get things clear before doing so. If it is not your first time, you will know what we are talking about. If it is, you have to know that lack of experience can play tricks on you. But do not worry, because in CHG we want to help you so that everything does not go on wheels and you do not make the classic mistakes when buying a home.
Four mistakes when buying a home
Exceeding the budget
How much is the maximum you can spend on buying your house? Set a budget and do not exceed it. Why? Well, because you may be able to pay the full amount, but you have to take into account everything that comes behind it: repairs, decoration… Set a maximum and move below it.
Not taking extra costs into account
This has something to do with the previous point. You have to calculate everything very well and count on all the additional expenses that the purchase may entail. The price of the property is not only the one that is stated in the advertisement. You have to add taxes, mortgage costs, notary fees…
Do not look at all the details or ask questions during visits to the house
Another mistake when buying a house is that when we visit it we don’t pay attention to all the details. Out of shame or modesty, many people are left with doubts or do not spend the necessary time on the visit. But from CHG we encourage you to do it, we encourage you to write down all the doubts that arise in a paper and take them with you on the day you go to know the house. And if you need more time, do not hesitate!
Keep the first impression
As much as we have fallen in love with the house, it is good that we have seen other options that we can compare it to. It will be much easier to make the right decision by knowing more options.
