Vail Colorado – November 2019
Even though we have seen many people moving into Eagle county over the past year, there are many that still want to own and live here. They just aren’t ready – for various reasons. This isn’t a bad thing. It’s one of the biggest, real commitments we’ll make throughout life. We have access to Realtor Magazine and took the basis of this information from a recent article. The entire article is attached at the bottom of the post. AG
From this article, the main reason future owner’s aren’t buying yet is because they cannot yet afford it. Coming up with the down payment amount varies but can still be challenging for anyone. It can take a while to come up with the amount of money you’ll need to get your offer accepted and be on your way to a place of your own.
No one says it’s easy…
It takes time, perseverance and planning. Get started and little by little, you’ll get there.
All information is great but many times you just want to know what you can DO to get to your goal. First, set the goal and a time. Don’t punish yourself if you don’t make it. Do your best though. Your goal should include the size home you want and the area you want to live in. Next, investigate what you can afford and how much money you’ll need to buy the home you want. Next, if the home needs renovation or maintenance, can you address it? Next, if you are financing the home, be ready. Your banker will help you with this step. So you know, offers on homes are made and if accepted, your money has to be ready to send over in 3-5 days from acceptance. Last, search and search some more. Find out what makes your dream seem real – what image is showing in your mind when you think about it. Then when you see it, you’ll be ready to make your offer, go through the process and get ready to move in.
