Buying a home is a decision that could have a major impact on your life for the next five to ten years (if not longer). That's why it's extremely important to know your requirements and what you need to be happy.

If you're in the process of looking for a house to buy, it pays to do an analysis of your financial resources, your goals, and your desired lifestyle.

For example, if expanding your family is part of your five-year-plan, you'll want to make sure the home you buy has enough bedrooms, play areas, and safety features to meet your future needs. The broad category of "safety features" could cover everything from the neighborhood crime rate to the amount of road traffic the street is subject to. Proximity to emergency services is also among the many things to consider when shopping for a new home.

Choosing an experienced real estate agent to help you navigate the many challenges of house hunting will increase the probability that the property you choose will be a good fit for your needs. A bank loan officer or mortgage broker can assist you in determining the type of mortgage you can afford and be approved for.

Other than affordability, sufficient space, and safety considerations, here are a few other items to keep in mind as you shop for your next home.

  • Commuting distance: Finding the ideal house that is located less than a half an hour from your business or place of employment can be difficult. That challenge becomes even greater if both you and your partner commute to work every day.
  • Number of bathrooms: Some homes only have one bathroom, which can quickly become a source of conflict and frustration in growing families. Making sure your home has enough bathrooms to meet your current and future needs is a key priority for all house hunters.
  • Miscellaneous requirements: Depending on your lifestyle and other factors, your home-buying priority list could include everything from a two-car garage and basement to a backyard patio and deck. If privacy is high on your must-have list, features like fencing, privacy hedges, and sufficient space between neighbors will also be important. Other items to consider may include a fireplace, space for a home office, and an eat-in kitchen.
There are literally dozens of characteristics, features, and advantages to look for when house shopping, so it pays to create a detailed list of everything you want, hope for, and can't live without! While it may be necessary to be flexible with certain items on your list, things like a good school district, a safe neighborhood, and house that's structurally sound and in good condition are requirements you may not want to waver from!

We have launched a new website at www.bilazarian.com.  When you access the site on your mobile phone, you can download the app (smartphone application) for droid or iphone from the home page and use it for convenient home searches.   We wanted to also share with you another app that we think is really great for not only home buyers but sellers as well.  It is called Homesnap and you can access information about it and send a link to the app to yourself from this page   -   http://www.homesnap.com/real-estate-agents/tina-bilazarian or scan the code here with your smart phone QR Code Reader.   This is how it works.  Imagine  yourself out looking at houses in neighborhoods you are considering.  You see a home for sale that you take a liking to, but don’t have any appointments and there isn’t an open house at the moment.  You turn on the app and point your phone’s camera at the house.  The app takes a picture of the home and in seconds you are looking at the listing itself complete with price, details and interior photos!  You didn’t need to look anything up or input an address.  The GPS and search capabilities do all the work for you.  Also, if you are a homeowner thinking of selling and you are curious about the value of a home that is not currently on the market.  Let the app find the address, by pointing your phone’s camera at it and in seconds you have the basic public record information – beds, baths, year built and an estimated value.  This value is not to be confused with the market value a Realtor® would provide, based on current market trends and actual home information, but it might give the homeowner some general information about the house. Apps are not meant to be a substitute for professional support during your real estate transaction, but one of many tools you can use to help with your search or sale.  Questions about using our site or linking to the app?  Let us know.     #homesnap #homebuying #realestatemobile

Owning your own house or apartment is a gratifying experience, as you not only have a place you can call home, but you also have the freedom to live the way you choose once you enter your domain. However, to find a home that can truly make you happy, there are a few points that you should consider beforehand. The first point to think about is the neighborhood (where your home will be located). This is important, because you need to feel that the area you are living in will be safe from crime, and that it will also be easy to commute to work on a daily basis. In the end, you do not want to spend too much time traveling in the evenings or in the mornings, as this can only make life more difficult. The next point to think about is how much space you want, as well as how many responsibilities you are willing to put up with. In other words, you could either choose to find a home that has a huge garden and a swimming pool, which is perfect if you enjoy gardening and going out for a swim, or, you could decide to do away with these extra bells and whistles if you hate gardening and do not want to spend time cleaning the pool. In other words, you want a home that you can truly feel comfortable living in, as this in turn will ensure that you can keep your life as stress free as possible. Price is always important, and you want to make sure you look for a home that you can afford. There are a lot of other expenses you have to think about, cable TV, insurance, taxes, telephone, heat, electric, maintenance etc. So make sure you factor all of these into your monthly budget. You do not want to be house poor and buying a home that you may fall in love with can in the end be very stressful if you are struggling to pay for it every month. Look for a home at a good value and that may need some cosmetic fix ups and grow into the home with home improvements down the road. This will bring value to your home and in turn be a good invest when you go to sell the home.
