If you’re a home buyer in Tampa, then this is a blog you must read. The Real estate market in Tampa offers so much and there are so many beautiful houses out there. The Kelly Parks Team’s real estate agents from Tampa don’t want you to rush into making a serious decision about buying a house without having the proper information.
Here’s what real estate agents think you should watch out for:
Many home buyers fail to get an insurance quote before making their decision to buy a house. People don’t think about the things that may become an inconvenience in the future. So, real estate agents say that one of the easiest ways to find out any potential problems is to get an insurance quote and you’ll have different kinds of valuable information, such as: food risks, crime rates, types of neighborhood claims etc. Any insurance agent will be happy to send you one.
Don’t Fall For The Flashy Items In A House
You don’t want to be one of those people who, when walking through a house, only see what’s immediately in front of them. Stainless steel appliances or flashy looking countertops may be some of those things you see and get amazed. They may be pretty but those aren’t the most expensive parts in a house.
We advise you to always order a home inspection report before buying a new house and pay attention to parts of the house that might cost you a lot of money to repair and update (roofs, windows, infrastructure, foundations etc.)
The Neighborhood Is Important
One extremely important part of selecting a home for you and your family is to understand what kinds of neighbors you might have. Why not knock on a few doors and have a chat with your potential neighbors. It might be helpful for your decision making process.
Your Potential New House Is Near A School
Your potential new house may be in a very populated area which may have narrow roads, and you know what that means don’t you? During the busy school hours, it could be really difficult to get in or out because buses are probably lined up on one side and the other side is full of cars. You might want to visit the property when children get to school and when they are leaving, just to see how it works.
Time Spent At Home
Many of us spend most of our time at home during evenings and on weekends. Again, you should visit that area at the time you think you’ll be home to see what is happening. If there are any activities that seem troubling to you (for example: troublemakers, gangs, barking dogs, loud traffic etc.), you’ll obviously know what to do.
