The Importance Of The Checklist Of A Home Buyer

Aug 18, 2007
If you are planning to buy a house then a homebuyer checklist can be of great help to you. It will help you organize everything and remember even the smallest detail. There are few things that you need to consider when you are creating a homebuyer checklist:

. You should always arrange for finance before you start looking for a house. Get in contact with the loan officer or your bank before you see a real estate agent. This is necessary to know whether you qualify for mortgage or not and what amount you will need to close. Once you are done with this, get to know the price range under which you can shop. Check your credit report and if it does not seem very good take the necessary actions to improve your credit scores. It is also essential to gather your pay stubs, bank statements, w-2 forms and tax return papers for the last few months and prepare a pre-approval letter that can be submitted with the offer you make to any financial institution.

. The next step you need to take is to know about the location where you want to buy your house and its projected economic outlook. Choose some areas where you would like to focus and make a list of the important factors you need to look into in a neighborhood or town. You can easily investigate about a town on the Internet or go through the local online newspapers for more information. You can shop around and compare the features, price, houses and demographics in a particular location so that you get the best deal.

. To cover your interest, do not forget to purchase an Owners Title Policy. Although you will need a title policy for your mortgage lender, this will just cover the amount of loan. The cost of the policy is not only less, but it will also protect your equity.

. You need to know the boundaries of your property. This means that you will have to conduct a survey so that you get an idea of what you are buying.

. If you want to seek legal advice on some matters, you can always get in touch with an attorney because most of the real estate agents can help you regarding local trends and not legal issues.

. The most important thing you need to do is to read the conditions, covenants and restrictions mentioned in the subdivision (CC&R). You should know about your legal rights and associated fees when you purchase a condominium.

. Never forget to do a walk through finally before you make down payment and put your signature on the closing documents. All the contracts should be checked twice and ensure that the documents for mortgage match with the charges and interest rates that have been promised to you.

. You need to ensure that the seller moves out of the property in time. Once the person receives the money and there is a change in the ownership of the house, you will have no leverage if the seller does not leave or damages something.
