After you’re done qualifying for a mortgage, it’s time to start looking at home. However, according to Zillow you should never purchase the first house you look at, and here’s why.
According to Zillow, during the home buying process, most prospective buyers visit an array of different styles of homes coupled with different neighborhoods. This leads to a feelings of excitement, joy and potentially disappointment – this is all part of the buying journey.
However, during this journey it’s not all about what they want in a home, but rather what they don’t want, which can be just as helpful, says the source.
Once a buyer engages a real estate agent, they have access to a source that has access to the local real estate market every day, says Zillow. Having someone on your side that has an extensive knowledge of local market is a great way to find a second opinion, introduce ideas and voice concerns that may not have otherwise crossed your mind.
Meanwhile, some prospective homebuyers don’t have the time or energy to look at multiple properties and simply want to speed up the process just to get it over with. However, Zillow advises that buying a home is a major investment and should never be rushed.
