Finding Deals for Home Buyers
Every time I’m driving around Raleigh, I see for sale signs. According to Realtor.com, almost 3,000 are listed for sale and in the last three years prices have been rising. Right now the median listing price is $314k.
For couples looking to score a deal on their first or next house, it may seem difficult.
Fortunately, Louis Guillama from Daymark Realty is here to help.
In this episode, we’re getting into:
- how to decide what home feature suit you
- finding a deal on your next place
- how to see if a fixer upper is a gem in the rough or a disaster
Your home is most likely the biggest purchase you’re going to make so it really does pay to be prepared before you sign those papers.
Buying a House You Love
Finding a house that fits you isn’t as easy TV makes it, but having someone experienced can make the process less stressful.
Louis works at Daymark Realty which is owned by Coastal Federal Union. We used them when we were hunting for our current place. With Anita Oxford from the team helping us our we got a deal on a house we love. That’s what made me reach out to Coastal for this episode.
Besides working with clients as a real estate agent, Louis also leads seminars for fir-time home buyers. But even with his technical and practical expertise, he still encourages clients to be involved and asks questions.
The first step is knowing what you’re looking for. Besides your budget and location, the two of you should sit down discuss what features you need in a house. Your house is a part of your life, so plan accordingly.
