Highlights
Relocating to the Big City

Do research online and find out about school systems, neighborhoods, parking, weather, public transportation, and laws that are native to that area. Have a job waiting for you, or if that’s not possible, know what you’ll do for money in the first few weeks of living there. Try to line up things like driver’s licenses, car insurance, renter’s insurance, and parking passes ahead of time as well. If there are things you liked to do in your town, find ways to do those things in the city.

Preparing to Sell

Just because you’ve gotten used to the cracks in the walls and the rattles in the radiators doesn’t mean a buyer will too. If your living room has lime green shag, wood-paneled walls, and all your collectibles and personal photographs, this will be much harder for them to do. Try replacing any bold color choices in your floors and walls with something more neutral—beiges, tans, and whites. Home stagers can add small details and décor touches that will bring out the possibilities in the various spaces in your home: lamps, mirrors, throw rugs and pillows, flowers, decorative soaps and towels, patio furniture.

Dealing with Financing

Unlike pre-qualification, which is based on a cursory review of your finances, pre-approval from a lender is based on your actual income, debt and credit history. Additionally, when picking a mortgage, you usually have the option of paying additional points (a portion of the interest that you pay at closing) in exchange for a lower interest rate. If you plan to stay in the house for a long time—and given the current real estate market, you should—taking the points will save you money. For instance, if homes have recently sold for 5 percent less than the asking price, your opening bid should probably be about 8 to 10 percent lower than what the seller is asking.

5 Tips for Buying a Home

As with engagement rings, there’s a general rule of thumb when it comes to buying a home: two-and-a-half times your annual salary. Don’t forget, too, that there are lots of considerations beyond the sticker price, including property taxes, energy costs, etc. While the Internet gives buyers unprecedented access to home listings and resources, many aspects of the buying process require a level of expertise you can’t pick up from surfing the web. If possible, recruit an exclusive buyer agent, who will have your interests at heart and can help you with strategies during the bidding process.
