Purchasing your new home

Purchasing a new home is an important step after the wedding. If you are a first time home buyer this process can be extremely intimidating but with the right realtor this process can go smoothly. Having an idea of house much house your can afford prior to meeting with a realtor can make the process go faster but a realtor can help you find a quality lender in additional to helping you find the house of your dreams.

Things to consider when purchasing your new home is the school district if you are planning to have kids, the distance from your job, and property values, and the amenities within the house that are important to you.

We love to recommend our clients to Mark Houck of Execuhome Realty for their housing needs. We asked Mark what makes him different from other realtors. “Passion and Patience. I love helping buyers purchase the house of their dreams or seeing the excitement of that First time home buyer when they get their first set of house keys. Since 75% of my business is from referrals from past clients, it is important that you meet or exceed the client’s expectations or you won’t be in this business for long.”

Mark loves the first time home buyer, “It’s sort of a fun challenge. They are just getting into the housing market and usually are not really sure exactly what they are looking for, so it’s exciting to match them up with that perfect house. When we finally walk into the “One”, it’s pretty obvious to everyone by the reactions. It’s really hard to explain in words, but the feeling they get and the look in their eyes says it all!"

Mark offers the following home buying hints “Do your Homework! Finding the right Home starts with finding the right Realtor! With an ever changing housing market, it is important to have a Realtor working for you that knows the market. There are all sorts of First time buyer programs out here that can result in significant money for the buyers. Different areas and counties in Maryland even offer their own incentives for people buying, everything from interest free loans to grants. Did you know that as a buyer, it cost you nothing to use the services of a Realtor like myself? Why wouldn’t you want someone looking out for you in the transaction? This is the biggest purchase most of us will ever make, so take some time to make sure the Realtor you select is the one for the job!”

So when you are ready to start the home buying process give Mark a call, he would love to help (443) 404-4000!!!
