Buying a home is the biggest bill many will pick up.... and one they can't afford to go blindly into

Often the biggest investment for most people, house buying is also an area where they have little knowledge in undertaking. if only there was a school that taught the right moves to make....

From the school of hard knocks, here are some "dont's dos" as offered by a United States based realtor Lending Tree LLC:

1. Don't go it alone
Buying a home is a complex process, requiring knowledge about everything from real estate values to legal matters and insurance. You will need advice you can trust, so set up a team to assist you-one that includes professionals such as lawyers, estate agents and friends in the know.

2. Don't buy at first sight
While love at first sight may be fine in romance, it is not so when putting hard earned money into a house.

Make a list of your needs and wants, and compare it with how well the house meets them. Check out the neighbourhood at different times of the day to learn ablout noise and traffic patterns; whether there are schools nearby (even if you don't have children, schools nevertheless add value to a locality) and other facilities and amenities you require.

3. Don't think you own the bank
Have a clear idea of how much you can spend before you go looking. This will save you the hassle of falling in love with a house that's out of your price range. Check out your credit rating with your bank and get the officer to work out how much of a loan you can obtain.

4. Don't overbuy
You may be able to borrow more, but can you afford to? Analyse your monthly expenses. As a general rule, your total monthly debts, including your mortgage, should not exceed 50 per cent of your gross household income.

5. Don't misplace your trust
Never get carried away or become emotional about a transaction. Even if the estate agent or the seller is a great friend, or a charming personality, never forget that for them, this is serious business. Be an active, informed participant in the deal by doing your own research from various sources. Find out how your support team can assist.

6. Don't accept oral agreements
Never depend on what is agreed orally! Get it right and get it in writing, from the beginning. Buying a house is a legal transaction, and written contracts apply, not verbal agreements.

7. Don't overlook the fine print
You need to understand what you're signing. Furthermore, although time is of essence when it comes to making an offer or buying a house, never be rushed into it. Get all documents, read and fully understand them and raise questions to clarify doubts before signing on the dotted line.

8.Don't make an unconditional offer
Never be tempted to throw caution to the wind once you've found a great house, no matter how excited you are about it. Remember that even if the bank says you're qualified for a certain amount of loan, it is still left to the bank whether it will accept the house as collateral. is the unit worth the amount of loan to be released? What does the valuation report say?

In the case of completed property, it is advisable to have it inspected by a home inspector before you commit.

9. Don't have house buyer's remorse

 

No place is perfect, so, don't miss out on a great house in the market in your search for the perfect one!
