Investing in Your Future

Beautiful Village Square Home

Purchasing a home is considered to be a long-term investment.

At SummerHill, we understand the importance of carefully approaching this decision for your family.

A few tips as you navigate buying your new home:

Evaluate what you can comfortably afford. Talk to a tax advisor or accountant about the potential tax benefits for owning a home. Talk to a lender to get pre-approved for your new home.

Research cities and counties that appeal to you.

–  Write up a list of your musts. These are the things you absolutely have to have to move into the home. How many bedrooms? 2 baths? Is it a 2-car garage? Yard? Outdoor space? Indoor laundry? (a given in new homes, but not so much in older condominiums where they may still have coin-operated machines)

Write up a list of your wants. These are the things that you would love to have, but won’t make or break your living in the home.  Granite counters? Stainless steel appliances? Media room? Home office?

The good news is that you’ll be able to get many of your musts and wants in a new home.

We’d love to hear from you!  What is a must for you in your next home?  How about a want?
