Thinking Of Buying A Home In Dallas? Three Mistakes To Avoid

buy a home in dallas

As Flower Mound real estate agents who see the mistakes potential buyers make every day, we want to help you avoid making these same mistakes. Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will make; it’s important to approach it in a way that will help you avoid heartache down the road.

Here are three big mistakes you don’t want to make when in the process of buying a home Dallas.

Not being represented by a buyer’s agent. It is critical to hire a buyer’s agent when in the market to buy a home! Real estate transactions are anything but simple, and purchasing a home or property can be stressful to say the least. What may happen if you make a wrong decision? It could potentially cost you a fortune. A highly competent buyer’s agent is on top of changing laws and procedures, and has a fiduciary duty to look out for the buyer’s best interests. Your buyer’s agent also has a finger on the pulse of the local market, and knows the real estate business inside and out.

Not buying a home because you feel it’s out of reach financially. Certainly there are properties that are beyond a certain budget, but so many buyers think they cannot afford the home they truly want. Keep in mind that as you make every payment, you are building equity in your home – and tax allowances are another advantage. Real estate, like gold, only increases in value. Sure there are ups and downs, but over the long-term, property values consistently increase. Even when credit problems or lack of money seem to be barriers, working with professionals who are familiar with strategies you may not be familiar with is a smart move. Remember, every time you make a payment on your home, you can enjoy knowing that you owe less, and your home is worth more!

Not having a thorough home inspection performed by trained and certified professionals. A cheap home inspection is just that – cheap. Considering a home is such a big investment, isn’t it worth spending the extra money to ensure the home is structurally sound, has no water damage, and that you won’t be looking at huge expense to make repairs for issues you weren’t aware of at the time you purchased your home?

Buying a home is a big decision, one that can be stressful, confusing, and leave you drained at the end of the day. As trusted Flower Mound realtors, we want to help make the process as easy and seamless as possible! Give us a call today, and let our team do the heavy lifting for you.

  • Yet another great experience with Team Nelson is in the books! I've used them now three times, and would definitely recommend them to anyone. As far as I know, there are still no other realtors out there will to "sell your home free" and still give you the great level of service that you'd expect out of a realtor. Thanks again, guys!!

    We were first time home buyers and Team Nelson made it an awesome experience! Emma was very professional and helpful and we couldn’t be happier with our first home. I highly recommend working with Emma with all of your home buying needs!

    I bought a house first and then relied on them to sell. Not only did they save me $3800, they did so in a superior manner. You don't get one realtor when you hire them, you get a team. Gene and Andra were nothing short of awesome, very responsive and always representing my interests. Cannot understand why anyone would use anyone else when buying and selling a house.
