Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving pieces that can leave homebuyers bewildered.
A real estate agent can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. By working with a professional agent who knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry, you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience.
Here are some of the key areas that an agent can help you with:
By providing your real estate agent with some basic information about your income, savings, and debt, he or she can assist you in getting pre-approved by a reputable lender. The lender will then go over your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.
It is very important to have a pre-approval letter and or proof of funds before you begin your search.
For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. An agent can assist you in this process by offering objective information about each property you look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, an agent can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, an agent will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, an agent will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible. Your pre-approval and or proof of funds will be needed when making an offer to purchase a property.
Closing, or settlement, can be a complicated process. In some areas, the escrow or title company handles the closing process, while in other areas an attorney handles it. Regardless of where you’re buying, a real estate agent can help ensure that everything goes smoothly.
Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving the family into a new home. But before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your existing home. The decision is a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment you’re living in. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell a home, there are several factors you should consider.
This likely won’t come as a big surprise: you should avoid selling your home during the winter holiday season. Tensions run high during the holidays and budgets run low. The result? No one’s really itching to buy, and offers that do come in are often low. So as a general rule of thumb, avoid the months of December and January when selling a home.
Conventional wisdom dictates that spring is the best time to sell a home. In spring, the holidays have past, the new school year is still a while away, and gardens and other outdoor spaces tend to look their best. And while spring is the season that sees the largest amount of buyers, it’s also the season when inventories are highest. This means lots of competition, so if you’re going to sell in spring, you really need to get your property to stand out with effective marketing and staging.
According to research, Thursday is the best day of the week to list your home for sale. By listing your home for sale on a Thursday, you can make it available immediately for weekend showings. Come Saturday – the busiest day for real estate – your home will have only been on sale for two days, which is great for attracting full-price offers. In general, the shorter amount of time your home remains on the market, the higher the offer you’ll receive.
There’s no substitute for admiring a home filled with choices made by you, for you. With a Schumacher home you’re not limited to just decorating rooms, your home will have your vision and be a place for you to express yourself in ways you never expected. And it all starts in our design studio and one-stop shop for all the materials that will make your home unlike anyone else’s.
Do you like open spaces and space to entertain? Or cozy rooms with sunlit views? Your custom home with Schumacher is a blank canvas for your family and all the memories you’ll make. With Schumacher, you’ll not only have hundreds of floor plans to inspire you, you’ll have real model homes to experience firsthand. Throughout our process you’ll get to use design software to see what your home will look like, have our New Home Consultants to support you along the way and be in touch with your personal builder.
We don’t build homes without you, we build them with you. When you purchase an existing home, it probably isn’t designed for what you need now and what you’ll want later. Whether you need flexible space for a growing family or more room for entertaining, we’ll design a house that meets your needs today and tomorrow.
Building a custom home on your own lot means you can keep living in the neighborhood you don’t want to leave. Or you can find land in an area with great schools. It’s all up to you. Spec homes or existing homes are built and situated without your needs in mind. We can even guide you on how to situate your new home on your lot so you can get the best light. We also do free home-site evaluations.
When you build a custom home with Schumacher you can be sure of quality construction and materials. Schumacher homes come with a 10-year structural warranty by one of the nation’s largest construction insurance companies. You can be completely confident in what you’re buying. With an existing home, there’s wear and tear to consider. When you build a custom home with Schumacher, you are investing in an energy efficient home that will save you money today and tomorrow.
We promise our homes are the most affordable in custom home building and we can prove it. We’re the #1 Custom Home Builder in America and our partnerships allow us to access quality materials for the best value at the best price. When you buy an existing home you could be paying for features or space that you may not want or need. When you build custom, you have the freedom to choose where you invest your dollars. At Schumacher Homes we believe in transparent pricing. No hidden costs, no unwelcomed surprises—you have total control of your investment.
Unlike existing homes that require costly maintenance, Schumacher custom homes are built with energy efficiency and your family’s comfort in mind. Existing homes can cost more to maintain and run—especially if you’re forced to buy more space than you need. Quality custom construction from Schumacher means lower utility bills. We partner with you throughout the design process to help you identify your needs, so your home has everything you want and none of the things you don’t.
