Quick Tips for the First Time Jersey Home Buyer

Sep 14, 2008
New Jersey is a wonderful place to buy real estate. There are so many different places that have a very unique history than other places in the United States.

Southern New Jersey is where a lot of United States history happened, such as the Underground Railroad, which helped free thousands of slaves from slavery in the mid 1800's. Southern New Jersey also contributed to the American Civil War and women's suffrage in the early 1900's.

Another wonderful place to look for a home is in Northern New Jersey. Northern New Jersey is sandwiched in between New York City and Philadelphia, and is a great place for the city person because of the great night life, spas, and restaurants.

Then of course there is the New Jersey shore, or the "Jersey Shore" as the locals refer to it. The New Jersey Shore has a lot to offer for the beach bum or someone who absolutely loves the smell of the ocean.

New Jersey borders 127 miles of the Atlantic Ocean and is well known for tourists to visit because of the casinos in Atlantic City and the fabulous wineries, spas, and all of the great boardwalks.

There are some beautiful homes in New Jersey that are perfect for anyone, from lovely homes in the suburbs to breathtaking beach homes on the Atlantic.

When you are shopping for a home in New Jersey, make sure you know how to shop without making a mistake. One idea to help you make a decision on your new home is to make sure you can afford what you are about to buy.

For example, think about what could happen in your life, such as a new job in a few years or if you or your spouse should accidently get hurt. Make sure your mortgage payment isn't too out of reach if you happened to get in a bind.

Another tip would be to get your new home inspected before you buy it just so you know you aren't purchasing a money pit. Homes are expensive so you need to make sure you are investing your money properly.

Lastly make sure you are purchasing a home that is able to grow with you over the years. If you are planning to expand your family in a few years, make sure you are going to have enough room for a little one and all of the stuff that comes with them. Good luck and happy house hunting.
