Considering Buying A Home

Considering Buying A Home? Consider These Tips Before You Begin Your Search

Buying a new home is exciting, but it involves a lot of preparation and paperwork to seal the final deal.  Our Tampa seller agents/Orlando seller agents/South Florida seller agents know this process all too well!  One way you can help make the process easier is by doing some prep work ahead of time. Will you soon be beginning the search for a new home?  If so, here is some advice from our Orlando listing agents/Tampa listing agents/South Florida listing agents.

Know Your Credit Score

If you plan to obtain a mortgage, then knowing your credit score is extremely important as it will be used to help determine your mortgage eligibility and rate. If you have a low credit score, then you may want to work on improving it before you apply for a mortgage. If your credit score is high, then try not to do anything to compromise it such as opening new accounts or forgetting to make payments.

Set a Budget

It is important to determine how much of a monthly payment you wish to make on a home before you start to look.  Sit down and really look at your income and expenses then set a maximum budget amount for buying a home.

Research Areas to Live

You will want to do some research on the area(s) you wish to live.  What are the average property taxes?  Will you be in a flood zone?  What are the average homeowner’s insurance rates?  What school district would you be zoned for?  What is rush hour traffic like?  These are all questions that can be answered to help you rule in and rule out areas to live.

Our next article will cover more tips to help you prepare for purchasing a new home.

One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents deals in one percent real estate which is designed to put more money back into your pocket.  We are the original one percent real estate firm with Tampa listing agents/Orlando listing agents/South Florida listing agents available to work with you to find the home of your dreams.  When you are ready to buy or sell, we will be here to serve you.

Aspects to Consider When Buying a Home

Aspects to Consider When Buying a Home

Aspects to Consider When Buying a Home

There are many moving parts and considerations when purchasing a new home. Our Tampa seller agents/Orlando seller agents/South Florida seller agents strive to include as much detail as possible about each listing they place on the MLS.  However, not all listings are as comprehensive as the ones written by your friends at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents.  Let’s take a look at some aspects to consider when in the market for a new home.

Insurance

It is important to research the cost of insurance before you purchase your home.  Consider both homeowners insurance and flood insurance.  You don’t want to purchase a home that you think you can afford only to find out that the insurance is significantly higher than you budgeted.  If you are working with One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents, our Tampa listing agents/Orlando listing agents/South Florida listing agents can provide you with guidance on this.

Schools

If you have children in school, you should definitely consider the proximity of your new home to the school(s) they plan to attend now and in the future.  If they are in private schools, consider the overall travel time. If they are in public schools, are they zoned for the elementary, middle, and high schools they plan to attend? Don’t assume they are zoned for the schools in closest proximity to your new home. Our Orlando seller agents/Tampa seller agents/South Florida seller agents have a list of the schools for each property we represent.

Commute to Work

Another major consideration is the commute to work. Your job location may be less than 10 miles from the home you plan to purchase, but it could be an hour or more drive in rush hour traffic.  It is a good idea to do a test run to see just how long your commute to work will be from the home you plan to purchase.

If you need qualified Orlando listing agents, Tampa listing agents, or South Florida listing agents, you’ve found the right place!  One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents deals in one percent real estate, which means more money in your pocket since our commissions do not exceed one percent. Another advantage of using us as your one percent real estate service is that we also offer buyers an additional 1% rebate on their mortgages through our exclusive Quicken Loans program.  Give us a call to learn more today!

One question many homeowners ponder is whether or not the time is right to put their home on the market. That is a difficult question that involves many factors to consider.

Determine Your Next Move

Our Orlando seller agents/Tampa seller agents/South Florida seller agents will tell you that while right now is a great time to sell, you still need to prepare for your next move.  Selling your home for top dollar is of great benefit if you are downsizing or moving to a new area where prices are a bit lower than where you are currently.

Have a Plan for the Profits

If you do plan to sell your home using one of our agents who works on a one percent real estate commission, then chances are you will see some real profits from your sale. Think ahead and have a plan for those profits. Are you going to invest in more real estate?  Do you plan to use them to help fund college for your children?  Do you wish to place them in a retirement fund?  Having a plan ahead of time will ensure you maximize the profits you make off of the sale of your home.

Considering some of what we have pointed out in this article will help you think through your options and plan ahead for the future.  If you are panning on selling your home, our South Florida seller agents/Tampa seller agents/Orlando seller agents are here to help.

Should I Accept Backup Offers?

Should I Accept Backup Offers?

Should I Accept Backup Offers?

The Florida real estate market is hot right now.  Our Tampa seller agents, Orlando seller agents, and South Florida seller agents are seeing homes going under contract within 24 hours of listing.  With real estate offers at an all-time high, more and more buyers are wanting to put in backup offers.  A backup offer is an offer that is made on a home or piece of property that already has an offer in place.  Sellers often accept backup offers as a contingency should their primary offer fall through. Here are some aspects to consider before accepting a backup offer.

Make Sure You Are Comfortable With The Price

You need to ensure you are comfortable with the backup offer before accepting it because should the primary deal fall through, your backup offer may contractually become your new primary offer.

You Can Accept More Than One Backup Offer

It has happened.  A primary buyer does not qualify for the loan and the backup buyer falls through.  You may accept as many backup offers as you wish, however, it is advisable that you are up front and honest with all interested parties as outlined below.

Be Honest and Up Front

If you have accepted multiple backup offers, be sure to advise them of where they stand.  Let them know if there are any offers ahead of theirs before any paperwork is drawn up. 

The 1 percent realty advantage with One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents will save you tons of money.  Our Orlando listing agents, Tampa listing agents, and South Florida listing agents have put more than $625,000 back into the pockets of our clients!  If you are buying a home through One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents, you can take part in our exclusive one percent real estate program that offers an additional 1% rebate on your mortgage.

Get Rid of Large Mirrors

Large mirrors were popular back in the 1980s. Today, the trend is toward smaller, decorative mirrors with surrounding wall space.

Do Away With Old Tile

Old tile on the floor and in the shower can be an eyesore.  Consider replacing outdated tile with something more modern and trendy.

Upgrade Fixtures

Dated sink and shower fixtures should be replaced with newer ones that not only look nice, but function better.  Dual and/or rain showerheads are among the fixtures that are trending in contemporary design.

Add a Sink

Double sinks in both the owner’s suite as well as children’s bathrooms are particularity appealing to home buyers.  This small upgrade can make a big difference.
