Read this before scouring the market in Ada, Michigan

Buying a home can be exciting and terrifying at the same time. If you’re ready to make the leap into home ownership, but you’re confused and anxious about the process, don’t worry. There’s a real estate agent out there who can help you. If you’re in the Ada, MI area, call Josh Livingston – Realtor © for assistance. Josh has a few tips for prospective homebuyers:

  1. Get a real feel of the neighborhood. Don’t simply visit a home in the daytime during the open house hours. Drive around the neighborhood, on the weekends, at all hours of the day. You’ll get a true feel for the neighborhood – and you’ll feel better about making an offer.
  2. Place a serious, educated bid. There’s making a ballpark bid, and then there’s hitting a home run. When you put down an offer, make sure your offer is reasonable, fair and well-researched. A realtor like Josh Livingston can help you research the home and the neighborhood to make a winning offer.
  3. Track your income (and start saving). Know where your money is going before you bid on a home. You’ll want to have a good chunk of change saved up for the down payment and related costs. Property taxes, maintenance and other sleeper costs can deplete your account in a heartbeat.
