If One Of Your Goals For 2019 Is To Become A Homeowner, Read Along…

Owning a home is one of the greatest investments. And right about now you’re thinking, “Yes, I’ve heard that phrase time and time again.” The reality is, owning a home can provide you with many incentives and a prosperous future. However, getting there is what takes the majority of work. Being determined, persistent, and wise about this decision is what truly matters.

Here at Palo Verde Homes, it’s our priority to match people with homes and guide them in their journey to homeownership. If you’ve made it your goal to become a homeowner in 2019 then we’d like to provide you with a couple of tips to help get you started.

Tip #1. Don’t settle.

This is a lifetime investment after all. Spend time exploring what you need and desire in a home. Make a list and carry it with you. There may be some give and take, especially if your partner has a different set of ideas but it’s important to find a balance. Once you begin attending Open Houses and working with a Realtor, who will also pose discovery questions, you’ll have a better picture of what will fill your desires in a home.

Tip #2. Research the builder.

You can fall in love with certain layouts or home features but if the home’s foundation is not what it should be, you’ll have numerous problems down the road. Knowing that the builder is reputable and has a solid customer satisfaction rate is key. One of the first items on your agenda should be researching home builders in the area. See what type of warranties they offer, make sure they meet all of the standard qualifications and don’t be afraid to ask for customer reviews. You should get to know the builder and ensure they are able to provide you with quality service from beginning to end.

Tip #3. Get pre-qualified for a loan early on.

Having your finances in check is especially important. One of the first items your Realtor will want to know is how much you’re looking to spend. If you have any outstanding debt or bad credit, this will affect your qualifications for a loan. Ultimately, it’s critical that you know what amount you can afford for a monthly mortgage. Knowing upfront what you can and cannot afford will save you from headaches and heartbreaks.

A Custom Builder Helps Make a House a Home

Custom builder working on a houseThe home buying process is exciting. Sometime between the constant property visits, the mounds of paperwork, the banking negotiations, and the housing inspections, new homeowners are able to start imagining themselves thriving in their new place of residence. This process can also be stressful, of course, and it is filled with many questions.

“Should we buy a charming, older home?” “Should we choose a residential neighborhood or seek out a property that sits on more acres of land?” “Should we buy a new home and hire a custom builder?” The questions are endless. 

Settling for Less than Perfect Shouldn’t Be an Option

At Palo Verde Homes, we are passionate about giving new home owners what they want.  Houses are not just meant to be comfortable places where we sleep at night. They are meant to be homes – places where we foster love, create safety, and build memories with the people we care most about. Homes are too important for homeowners to sacrifice on the little things, and settling for less than perfect shouldn’t be an option.

Older Homes Versus Newer Homes

 

While older homes may be charming, they are also usually fixer-uppers. Moderately new homes may appear to be more affordable than a brand new home, these homes never seem to quite fit the personalities of the new homeowners. Even if just a few, minor details are not perfect, new homeowners are committing to putting up with those imperfect, minor details for quite some time. When prospective homeowners choose to purchase brand new homes and hire a custom builder, however, they are guaranteed to get exactly what they want. Custom builders cater to  the details of their house to match their personalities. This way, homeowners are not forced to try to fit their personalities in a house that does not quite fit them.

Homeowners are unique – some have families and some don’t. Some have pets, some like hosting, and some like a peaceful and quiet environment. These homeowners should live in houses that match their lifestyles and preferences.

A Custom Builder for Your New Home

 

If you live in the El Paso area and are researching your options for the purchase of a new house, we encourage you to consider custom building and Palo Verde Homes can help you with it. When you know you are getting what you want in a purchase, stress is alleviated and satisfaction is increased. Buying a house is important, and making it into a home is even more important. By crafting the perfect house with the help of a custom builder, you will be taking the first step toward making your house a home.
