For many buyers this is a great time to make a move. The weather is more cooperative, kids are out school and can help out! If your kids are changing school districts, this makes for a nice flow of events.
I suppose that that is why May is National Moving Month.
Because of this, my good friend Stuart Price who works for the local NBC station, KSN, asked if I would help him with a story on what buyers should look for as they embark on their search for a new home. I was happy to help out. Make sure to check out this story on Fourstateshomepage.com
Buyers can do a lot of home shopping on-line, but that is just a start. There are a few other things that you should do before you even go to look at a home.
First, check with a lender to see how much you can borrow and what type of loan would work best for you.
Next, do a drive by to see if this is the neighborhood where you would like to reside.
Then, call a real estate agent who can work for you to make sure that you are getting the best deal and have a smooth transaction.
