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.

    Bill and his team are great to work with, both in helping us first find a rental property when we moved to town and as we began looking at purchasing a home!

    My husband and I were relocating to Colorado and were very unfamiliar with Denver. We're thrilled we got in touch with Zac because he made the process the easiest it could ever possibly be. We've purchased 2 homes in California before, and this was the easiest process. He was amazing with learning what we were looking for in a home, visiting the homes and sending us video walk-through tours while we were still out of town, and helped us find & close on the home of our dreams! Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive & easy to get ahold of, thoroughly answered all of our questions, and provided us great advice. The rest of his team that help with all the escrow and closing logistics were equally as helpful. On top of it all, they are just good, friendly people that are a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them!!

  • Team Nelson took care of a complicated transaction involving us purchasing a home at the same time as selling our own. They were on the spot with responsiveness and backing each other up along the way. They kept their internal team up to speed, particularly Casey and Kelly, such that each knew what was going on at all times; a truly successful team effort to coordinate both selling & buying; my wife Sandy and I give them well-deserved high marks.
