1. Make a commitment. Commit yourself to your new home for at least a couple of years

    before making your next move.


2. Money matters. If you’re considering a mortgage, shore up your credit and get a copy

    of your credit report.


3. Get pre-approved. Save yourself the time and grief of looking at houses you can’t



4. Determine how large your mortgage can be. Explore different loan options to

    determine what is best for you.


5. Decide what (and where) you want to buy. Prioritize your needs (i.e., location,

    schools, and amenities).


6. Consider your re-sale value. Even if you don’t have school-aged kids, a strong school

    district is a good thing.


7. Do your homework. Bid based on sales trends of similar homes in the neighborhood.


8. Calculate the hidden costs. Property taxes, insurance, maintenance and association

    fees can impact your wallet over time.


9. Don’t be house poor. Double and triple check to be sure you haven’t maxed yourself

    out on the cost of your home and left nothing for maintenance, etc.


10. Get help. Hire a REALTOR® to get the most for your money. It pays to have

       someone looking out for your interests.
