House Hunting

February 17, 2017

House hunting can be one of the most exciting parts of the home-buying process. It’s not only entertaining; it’s relaxing when done via the internet in the comfort of your own home. It’s fun to look at a Lake Ashton pre-owned home and imagine how you would decorate it if you owned it. Before getting started, there’s a little bit of homework that must be done. First, determine a budget for the purchase of your Lake Ashton pre-owned home and become familiar with special financing programs. At Lake Ashton Resales we offer a special financing program and many of our homeowners are currently reaping the benefits of this exciting loan option. Here’s a brief description of how the program works. Qualifying buyers of Lake Ashton pre-owned homes for sale may be eligible for a “Home Equity Conversion Mortgage for Purchase” loan (HECM). Under this program, buyers who are 62 years of age and older, who make their home at Lake Ashton their permanent residence, may make a one- time payment based on their age and are never required to make another monthly mortgage payment!  Second, identify your needs.  Determine the number of rooms, square footage, and must haves.  You’ll need to know this information before you start your search, and so will your Lake Ashton Resales Realtor.  Third, contact the Lake Ashton Resales office. Purchasing a home is a huge investment and it only makes sense to obtain the guidance of a knowledgeable, skilled real estate agent. Our realtors are able to give house hunting advice and will steer you to www.LakeAshtonResales. Our website allows you to search for Lake Ashton pre-owned homes, based on your pre-determined search criteria. Photographs, virtual tours and other important information are provided allowing you to create a “short list” of desired homes.  Finally, visit the homes on your short list. A Lake Ashton Resales realtor will arrange and accompany you during a private tour of the homes you want to see.  Remember to bring your checklist and don’t forget to smile. Happy house hunting!
