What Do You Worry About Most In Buying a Home?

Fear can be helpful and we either run to or away from it or some, say what’s the use and go back and sit on the couch and complain.

As a real estate professional and Broker/Owner of the brokerage, the fears above have not changed over the past 20 years other than the 17.67% the fear of getting a mortgage, that is the highest I have seen in years.

Buying a home that turns out to have problems: 28.17%

Work with an experienced Realtor, get a home inspection by a qualified registered home inspector, check if there were any insurance claims, work permits, building code violations, and be extra cautious, get the furnace and air checked by HVAC professionals, an electrician if called for. When there were multiple offers, you would highly unlikely be the successful buyer with a home inspection clause, this is why an experienced Realtor should be able to pinpoint visual concerns and even have a mini pre-inspection before making an offer.

Finding a good real estate agent: 9.67%

Good is average, you should go for great, a few questions to ask.

Paying too Much 44.17%

Again, a thorough, great experienced Realtor will have done their research and homework and show you the correct numbers and stats; there it is between you and the seller; unfortunately, in multiple offer instances, there are overzealous Realtors and their clients offering foolish numbers, I say I walk away but then again, I am a numbers guy and make decisions on facts, not emotion.

So there you go; in summary, choosing the right professional is as important as choosing the right home for you, and not every home is for you, nor is the Realtor!

"Not All Realtors Are The Same"! This website and content are for you and are designed and constantly upgraded with the latest real estate trends, how-to’s and what is for sale on MLS. All the so-called Gurus of marketing and branding say a Realtor and their Brokerage should have a bio to let people know about them. I have always felt bios were boasting, bragging, or trying to impress readers; I’ve always felt that our actions and results should impress and not be all talk and no action! As they say in Texas:” All hat and no cattle”! So here goes: We are a small brokerage by choice. Our primary focus is guiding home buyers and sellers to make good decisions. We believe selling real estate is a process, not an event or knee-jerk reaction; we sleep well at night and ensure our clients do as well! We are not for everybody, nor can we please everybody, nor do we tell people what they want to hear; I know that may be old-fashioned and boring but we are dealing with hundreds of your hard-earned money. Would you rather be happy, excited and bored or unhappy, excited and make a poor choice? About Ty Founder & Owner, & Broker of Record of Sutton Group Envelope Real Estate Inc., That's all I can say about me! You see, this is about you, not me; you do not want to hear blah blah stuff about awards, designations, or that we walk older adults across the street (I used to help old ladies cross the street, but as I got older I did not want my wife to think I was flirting) the reincarnation of Mother Teresa, walk on water or anything else to impress you. We let the numbers speak for themselves; success leaves clues!
