TIME TO GO SHOPPING for YOUR PROPERTY
You need to have these preparations cleared for you to find your right property.
Get to know the neighborhoods, complexes, or subdivisions, which interest you. Drive around and get a feel for what it would be like to own a property in the area. Start getting a sense of the assets available in those areas.
1. Find Opportunities
Create an opportunity to make conversation. Be the first to say hi. Linger by the mailbox or play ball with the kids. Walk the dog. It’s likely someone else will be out and about.
2. Housewarming Party
A “sip and see” party at your house will do just fine. Invite your neighbors. Serve punches and cookies or cocktails and appetizers. See how friendships will build. If you have kids, invite all the neighbor’s kids as well for a play date. You made your set of friends, your child as well.
Select a few properties that interest you the most and have your real estate agent make appointments to visit them. Ask your real estate agent about the potential long term resale value of the investments you are considering.
Make an offer that the seller couldn’t resist accepting. After you picked the home that you fancy the person you hired will be the one to help you out. A good agent will investigate the potential costs and expenses associated with the new property. Drafts an offer that gives you an advantage over other offers.
