Buying a house is the biggest investment most people will make in their lifetime, and the complex process can be intimidating to many homebuyers. Knowing the right questions to ask and receiving professional advice will help your clients make a sound investment for their future.
Whether they are buying their first home or moving across country, navigating everything from jargon to home-buying basics can be scary and overwhelming.
Before your client begins the purchase process, make sure they have answers to these top homebuyer questions. Each is a critical component to making an educated and informed decision.
Top Homebuyer Questions
1. Where do we want to live?
The first step is to help your buyer narrow down a location and style of home. They have probably already researched online to get a sense of pricing and area.
Help them determine what factors are most important when it comes to choosing a neighborhood such as schools, commute to work, shopping, entertainment and how quiet or peaceful the neighborhood is versus a hustling and bustling urban area.
Knowing the answers to these questions before they get in the car will save everyone time and frustration by eliminating developments and neighborhoods that are of little to no interest. If you are out viewing homes in a specific area, let your clients stop and talk to homeowners. They need to understand why others enjoy living in that area.
