New Year's Resolutions for Your New Home in 2019
December 21, 2018
If one of your goals for 2019 is moving into a new home in the Oklahoma City area, it's never too early to start planning. Browsing through photos of plans and available home is a fun place to start, but for many future home-buyers, the financing part of the process can be intimidating. Don't stress! At Ideal Homes we've worked with buyers in all different kinds of financial situations, and we're here to help you through the process.
- Find out where you stand - Our preferred lenders are ready to show you what programs are available, what you can qualify for, and what you can do to make your financial situation as solid as possible for a home mortgage. It's as simple as speaking with one of our experts and letting them guide you through the process.
- Be aware of what can affect Your home buying - Some home buyers don't know that changes like accepting a new job (unless it's within the same industry) or making big purchases such as a new car or even new furniture can affect your mortgage approval. Before doing anything that might change your financial situation, talk to a trusted mortgage expert.
- Know the numbers - Sit down with a pen and a calculator and look at real costs of owning a home. Where can you save money (moving yourself, purchasing a more energy efficient home and saving on bills) and any additional costs (insurance, property taxes, down payment). Our team at Ideal Homes will be able to help you prepare for the changes.
- Have fun home shopping - You can call it shopping or call it research, but now is a great time to start searching online and visiting some of our furnished model homes. Elena can get you fast answers to any of your questions and one of our New Home Consultants can show you everything we have to offer.
