    What Should You Look for When Buying Your First Home? – Fridays with Fred

    Are you planning on buying your first home in 2018? If so, you’re making a smart choice!

    In this article, we will provide you with information on what you should be on the lookout for during the process of buying your first home.

    How To Use Technology to Help You Find Your First Home

    Thanks to technology, your goal of buying your first home is a lot easier than it was for most home buyers 20 or 30 years ago because you can investigate a home online before visiting it in person.

    Besides looking for the right home that has the right bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage, you should also be looking for a home that’s in a great neighborhood, part of an awesome school district, and is near shops or stores that you may use on a regular basis.

    Besides using Real Estate websites to search for homes in Southern California, you should also be searching for blogs, forums, and commentary online from people who actually live in the area just so you can have confidence that the home you want to buy, and the area is the right locations for you.

    Be Ready to Do the Extra “Leg Work” To Investigate A Home

    Let’s say that you’ve found a single-family home, condo, or townhome in Southern California that excites you and you’re thinking that it might be “the one” for you and your family.

    Although technology is great, you have to take the home search/home buying process a step further by really “digging” into that home and learning everything that it has to offer you.

    You should double check the floor plan, go to the city and check for permits, go to schools in the area to investigate them, verify that there aren’t any boundary changes coming up and you should also verify what their school ratings are.
