5 Tips When Looking for Bloomfield Hills Real Estate

Posted in Bloomfield Hills Real Estate by Michigan Real Estate Expert on March 12th, 2009

There are a lot of homes for sale now which makes it a great time to buy Bloomfield Hills real estate in Oakland County Michigan. Not only can you find a wide variety of beautiful homes at lower than normal prices but thanks to the new American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, if you’re a first-time home buyer, you can get a generous bonus at tax time.

Here are some tips for taking full advantage of the stimulus and to make shopping for a new home more pleasurable.

1.  Don’t Settle for the First Place You See

It isn’t a race and you don’t get extra points for being fast. Take your time to find just the right one for you.

2.  Weigh the Pros and Cons

Just about any home will need a few improvements.  Even newly constructed homes usually need improvements like landscaping. Home sellers are savvier now about how to make enhancements to catch a buyer’s eye, but look carefully. There will still be things you want to change. Weigh the difference between the cost of those repairs and the sale price. If you really want to purchase a home, even though it’s going to take a lot of work, place your bid accordingly.

3.  Start Looking Now

The new stimulus plan allows for more homeowners to remain in their homes where only a short time ago they needed to sell. The housing market will begin to stabilize and prices will get stronger. If you are thinking about buying a new home, don’t get left on the sidelines…now is the time to do it.

4.  Get Help

The sea of homes available can be mind-boggling. Find one of the best professional Bloomfield Hills real estate agents to wade through the homes for sale that meet your family and financial needs.

5.  Get Your Financing in Order

The stimulus plan will help make banks and mortgage companies stronger and loans will once again be available. They may not be as easy to get as they were in the past, however, so make sure you have all your information ready. Having financing done in advance makes your job of buying Bloomfield Hills real estate much easier.
