Every home buyer is different. Some want a Cary home that has the ability to improve with DIY projects. Some home buyers want a new construction home in Holly Springs. Even with vastly different goals in a home, there are a few things to consider when deciding on a home.
Our realtors at Raleigh Cary Realty have worked hard to identify what to look for in shopping for a home. This allows our agents to show the best homes for the right home buyers.
3 things to watch for when viewing a home on the market in Raleigh are:
- Money Pits: Some families purchase a home to fix it up and make it their own. However, even fixer upper homes can be money pits. It is important to know the personal budget and the projects that need to be done on a home. Speak to a real estate agent in Cary or a general contractor before putting an offer on a home to make sure the problems can be fixed. If a hot home and you need to put an offer in right away make sure you have enough time to do your due diligence in the Due Diligence period and you are willing to walk from the initial due diligence deposit if you see too many problems or cost involved.
- Speak to the Neighbors: Don’t be afraid to chat with the neighbors before putting an offer in on a home. They will know the builder of the home and the quality of the builder’s product best and may give you great insight into the neighborhood and area you never knew.
- Not Asking: Many home buyers, especially in the Raleigh & Cary real estate market, want their offers to be accepted quickly. Thus, they won’t ask for things they need – even in the due diligence period. Always do home inspections and ask for a preferred vendor, make sure that punch list gets done before closing, and don’t be afraid to ask for wiggle room on price.
