With so many affordable houses on the market these days and the interest rate at it’s lowest ever, it’s hard not to consider at least looking at what’s available out there. Buying real estate is one of the best investments you could ever make and buying at a time like this will ensure you’ll make a profit whenever you decide to sell.
Come take a look at our Brunswick County MLS listings and remember these helpful tips when heading out to browse.
1. Know how much you can afford and focus on properties in your price range. A bank or other mortgage lender can determine what you can afford.
2. Narrow down the area that you want to look in. Do you want to live close to the ocean? Are you looking for a retirement community? Is it more important to have a dock and be on the waterway?
3. Plan ahead to know which houses you want to look at. With so many houses on the market it’s wise to have a strategy. Don’t cram too many into one trip or you’ll wind up confusing them.
4. Bring a notebook and camera to document your thoughts and what you see. They’re useful later when you’re sitting at home thinking about the day’s events.
5. It’s helpful to bring one good friend or relative but a crowd is too much. Everyone has an opinion and their opinion is not necessarily yours.
6. Dress for comfort as you’ll be doing some walking. Wear sneakers or sandals, not heels.
