Tips for Joint Base Charleston Home Buyers
1. Don’t wait. Buyers
who start their hunt early will likely face less competition and have just as
many homes for-sale to consider. And if
you love a house, do not hesitate to put in an offer. The people that saw it
yesterday slept on it last night and are ready to put in an offer today.
2. Shop around for a mortgage. Buyers
shouldn’t take the first rate-quote they receive and should talk to more than
one lender. A lower interest rate could equate to thousands in savings over the
life of the loan.
3. Don’t discount buying new. Buying
new most likely means less competition and a wider selection of homes. But a
caveat: New-homes typically cost more.
