Buying a Home 101

So, you’re looking for a home. Congratulations! Now what? There are many things to be aware of, whether you’re a first-time home buyer or an experienced investor. Being informed is the key to a successful transaction. Read this article to learn the top things that every potential home buyer should be aware of before beginning.

First-Time Home Buyer

You are about to make the plunge and purchase your very first home. At whatever stage of life you may be, you know there are specific things that you want and need in your first house. You also need to remember to look at the neighborhood of your home as well. Are there good schools? What is the crime rate? What kind of recreational activities does the area offer? Somewhere, your dreams for that ideal home and the real estate market of the Conejo Valley intersect, and at Lydia Gable Realty Group, our team wants to help you find that place.

Home Inspection

It is crucial that you inspect any home you plan to purchase. But how do you find a trustworthy home inspector, and what will your home inspection cover? Here are answers to those questions, plus some questions to ask your home inspector and a list of aspects of the property that you should always ensure have been properly examined before purchase.

Making an Offer

You’ve visited numerous homes and you think your search has finally come to an end. Are you ready to make an offer on the house of your dreams? Here’s what you should know about making an offer on a house: what your offer will consist of, how the seller may respond, and what your real estate agent can do to help ensure that your best interests are met in the transaction.

Sales Contracts

The sales contract you make is legally binding. A sales contract is essentially an offer made by the buyer that has been signed by the seller, and is legally binding after the buyer is informed. Read this article to find out more about real estate sales contracts.

What Is Escrow?

You may have heard this term, but what exactly does “escrow” entail? Essentially, it is a contract arrangement between a seller and buyer. A third party holds funds until certain contingencies and caveats are fulfilled. Let our team explain escrow to you.
