Buying a home is an important life decision. Make sure you consider these essential tips before you buy:

  1. Look at your finances and decide how much you can afford.
  2. Make sure to physically inspect the home and property for potential fixes and hazards.
  3. Tour the neighborhood at different hours to get a feel for the local atmosphere.
  4. If you have children now or might in the future, check out the local schools.
  5. Check the location of the nearest shopping, such as grocery stores, restaurants, and other stores you already frequent.
  6. Remember, when interest rates are on the higher side, you may be "marrying the house, but dating the rate". Keep in mind that you may be able to refinance the interest rate later when rates go down.
