Buying Your Home
Buying a home is the most exciting time for an individual or couple. Some take the approach and view the purchase of a home as a transaction or as an investment. Other, it is a place to raise or grow their family. Whatever it is you are looking for in a home – more space, a back yard, “fixer upper”, or overall resale value – The Lieberman Team can help you find a place to call home.
Start Searching For Your Home
Before picking out a long list of homes to view or aspects of a home you can’t live without, you’ll need to sort out a few details first:
- Your budget: The last thing you want during your home buying experience is to fall in love with a home you cannot afford. Determine how much of a monthly mortgage you can comfortably afford and begin to narrow down home searches from there.
- The size of the house you need: Larger homes and larger lots can mean larger mortgage payments, property taxes, and higher utilities. It is important to look beyond the cost of your home to see if there are other costs that can be associated with it that can affect your budget.
- Location where you want your house to be: Determine how long of a drive to and from work you are willing to drive, the location and quality of schools in the area, resale value, crime rates, community events or things to do – all of these things can affect how you feel about your purchase. Nothing is worse than buyer’s remorse and our goal is to make sure you don’t feel that!

Make An Offer To Close The Deal
Once you have found your dream home, the next steps begin! If you are positive you have found the home you have been searching for, then you make an offer. Depending on the home and situation, you could negotiate specific tasks or favors to be added to the sale of your home. Don’t stress too much on how to make an offer, that’s what we are here for! We’ll advise you on what type of offer you should make and notify the seller of the offer you have decided on.
If they don’t accept your offer, you can choose to submit a new one or continue looking at other houses for sale. If your offer is accepted, then things will move forward with your lender to finalize the loan for you to purchase the house.
Soon you will have the keys to your new home in your hand! There is no need to go on a home search on your own when the real estate agents, The Lieberman Team, are available at your service.
