At Prudential Centennial Realty, we want your home shopping and home buying experiences to be as satisfying and rewarding as possible. All too often people tell home buyers what TO do. Today, we want to tell you what NOT to do when purchasing one of the many amazing Larchmont NY homes for sale.
DO NOT work alone. A trained, experienced Realtor will champion your cause. In many cases buyer’s representation is absolutely free. Your home buyer will have a professional Realtor on his or her side, you should too.
DO NOT change job unless it is necessary. Lenders like stability. A stable employment history looks much more appealing to a potential lender than a recent change.
DO NOT give an earnest money deposit directly to a “for sale by owner” seller. When you shop for Larchmont NY homes for sale, always use a licensed real estate professional. Any professional will tell you your good faith deposit should go into a trust account. Some for sale by owner sellers don’t understand that funds are to be applied to your expenses at closing.
DO NOT forget to switch utilities. You’d be surprised how many people forget to apply for utility service at their new home. Call the utility companies as soon as you have a contract.
DO NOT forget hazard insurance. Make sure your home is covered in case of disaster. Your lender will require insurance and might require a copy of your policy.
