Where do I start?
Buyers in the Ann Arbor real estate market should begin their home search in front of a lender. The purpose of sitting with a lender before getting serious about purchasing a home is to get a great feel for what you can afford. Your lender may show you how you can afford a $200,000 house when you thought you could afford $300,000. The difference between those two price points while viewing homes is dramatic! You don’t want to be disappointed that you can only afford a $200,000 home, when you’ve been seeing nothing but homes in the $300,000 price point.
Looking at Homes, What Should I Keep in Mind?
Your “Gotta Have It” list is a list of all those things you need in a home. Maybe you need 4 bedrooms, 2 and a half baths with at least 2500 sf. These are the non-negotiables in your next home. These are the items you need to have in order for the purchase to make logical sense.
Your “It Would Be Nice” list is the list of the amenities in your next home that you would like to have. Maybe you can live with a regular bath tub, but would love to have a jetted tub. Instead of vinyl, you would prefer tile.
The object of having these two lists front and center in your mind as you are reviewing homes for purchase is to ensure that all you need in a home and most of what you want is in your next home. Optimally, you want 100% of all the things you need in a home and at least 50% of all the things you want. With the number of Ann Arbor Michigan homes for sale, it will be a quick order of business to find the home that meets all the “Gotta Have It” items and many of the “It Would Be Nice” items.
