Building your savings to buy a home

The idea that you need a substantial cash reserve to be able to make a big purchase like a new home is fairly obvious, but for all the advice out there about getting ready for that first home purchase, there is not a lot of discussion about exactly how to do that. Should you pay off existing debts first? Do you need to raise your credit rating? It can be tough to tell what the best options are going to be. Here are some tips to get you started.

Why homebuyers need a home inspection

When you are buying a home, there are a lot of mandatory expenses. A home inspection is not required for the sale to go through, so you might think you can just skip over it. Consider the cost of a home inspection, the time involved and the information you learn. The master bedroom might be beautifully decorated, there might be gorgeous tile in the kitchen and an exquisite fireplace, but can you see what is lurking in the walls? Do you know how to inspect the wiring and plumbing? A home inspector knows what you do not.

Learn as much as possible about the seller's position when buying real estate

When you are purchasing real estate, whether it is for your own personal use or for a commercial investment, you should know as much as you can about the property and the reason for the sale. According to the National Association of Realtors, over 60 percent of buyers use many different sources to learn more about a property. Although your buyer's agent may be able to help you do some of the research, you can certainly take responsibility for some of it. This information can help you in negotiations.
