Oakland County MI Short Sale Properties: Choosing the Right Home for You

Posted in Oakland County MI short sales by Michigan Real Estate Expert on April 11th, 2011

Are you looking for the ideal home for you and your family?  You may find yourself trying to decide between two similar homes, one being an Oakland County MI short sale property.  You could have worse problems than this on your search for the perfect home, but how do you decide which home is better for you and your family?

Here are  a few primary points to consider:

  1. Location. This is where you are going to live. You need to consider how far away it is from work, schools, and shopping. You probably want to do as little driving as possible. A home close to where you will be spending your time away from home may be the better choice for you. 
  2. Home repairs. What will you need to do to the home once you move in? Think about the time and money you will have to invest in the home before making your decision. One of the homes might be in slightly better shape, and may be the better option for you so you can concentrate on getting settled in your new home after moving in.
  3. Age of appliances. This can make a big difference in your choice. Do you really want to have to replace the appliances soon after you move in? You might be better choosing a home with newer appliances.
  4. Hobbies. Is there a car lover or avid crafter in your family? Look at which home has the most to offer these people. Perhaps one garage has been expanded or has built-in work benches. Maybe a closet already has a space to organize craft supplies
  5. Time to complete the sale.  If you need to move in a short time frame, buying an Oakland County MI short sale property may take longer to complete the real estate transaction.
