Buying a House – Compromise Isn’t Always Key

If you’re buying a house, compromise isn’t always key

When buying a house, there is a lot to take into consideration. Often, buyers have to compromise and generally do not get everything on their wish list.  Here are three items that REALTORS® recommend buyers not compromise on.

 

THE FLOOR PLAN

 

Buying a House - The Floor Plan

 

It’s difficult and expensive to reconfigure a home’s floorplan. If a house does not fit your minimum buying criteria in terms of number of rooms and the flow of the main living areas, cross if off your list.

 

THE SCHOOL DISTRICT

 

Buying a House - School District

 

Home buyers should visit the school district’s website to get a map of its exact boundaries to avoid any surprises later on.

 

THE NEIGHBORS

 

Buying a House - The Neighbors

 

Be cognizant of neighboring homes, as they can affect future resale value.

 

Rents increasing, home mortgage availability getting easier, and interest rates staying low, are reasons for renters to buy a house. If you are a prospective home buyer who is ready and willing to act now, and would like to know more about available homes for sale in Canoga Park, Tarzana, Encino, Lake Balboa, Van Nuys, Northridge, North Hills or any other San Fernando Valley or Santa Clarita Valley real estate, please contact the agents at HelpUSell Real Estate, Southland Realty, today at (818) 997-1000.
