When dreaming of buying a new home, what does it look like to you? With so many different kinds of homes, choosing the right one can be a challenge. We recommend making a wish list to get started. You’ll want to consider location, architectural style, interior condition and whether you’ll need upgrades. If you enjoy doing your own projects and have the needed skills, you may be interested in a fixer-upper. Schools may be another factor, as the quality of local schools may affect home prices when you’re considering making a purchase, and later, when you may decide to sell. Is a garage a must-have? If so, be sure to include it on your list! Visit our dream home wish list for more factors to consider. You can also contact your local loan officer with questions.
