What to Look for When Buying Real Estate


The first thing that most of us think of is the adage... "location, location, location". While that is certainly very critical, there are many other things to consider when buying real estate. Here are some universal guidelines. How long do you intend to stay in a home This is an important question to consider because moving is quite expensive.

What Does Properly Priced Mean


In a market where demand is strong and it has become more difficult to figure out how much buyers are willing to spend, how do real estate agents determine the right asking price for a house? It has never been an exact science. These days, agents often find themselves starting at a higher price than is borne out by the facts and go from there. Supply and demand, of course, dictate asking price. Obviously, if the supply is low, the asking price will have to be adjusted upward to meet it. In general, though, the asking price is a [...]
