Q: What should homebuyers keep in mind when looking for a new community?
While it is imperative to satisfy the emotional quotient of a purchase, tantamount is the financial viability of the property and the community where it exists. In considering new communities, it is important to research a broad scope of socio-economic data. This ranges from taxes to schools to community activities.
Some questions to answer would be: “Can I afford to live here?” “Is the value of my home projected to increase over time?” “How do the schools rank in test scores?”
What separates a Realtor from a salesperson is service. My job as a Realtor is to provide comprehensive service that extends well beyond the financial aspect of the purchase. It is my responsibility to have answers to the many questions that arise in the course of a purchase.
A Realtor provides an objective point of view to what can be a very emotional experience. Using a Realtor to weigh the pros and cons within the decision-making process can be invaluable.
