Part of our all-encompassing service to our clients is making recommendations on that all-important buying process. Purchasing a home is obviously an important and at times, fretful, process. Consulting HGTV, we’ve assembled 8 buying tips for home buyers. Whether you are a first-timer or experienced home owner, it is imperative to rehearse and recall these tips.
Location: Obviously, if you are looking at Erath County, you’ve already done your research in this regard, the oldest and most proven rule in real estate;
Consider Several Homes: In order to compare properties to each other, you should view at least three homes before making a decision;
Home Inspection: Regardless of the appearance of the property, commission a thorough inspection of the home before buying;
Needs, Not Wants: It’s important to make of list of necessary components of a new property and separate them from the “nice to haves;”
Do Not Overbid: Although home auctions promise great savings, at times the bidding process inspires competition, which can drive the price up over market value;
Appearances Can Be Deceiving: Expensive furnishings can often times cover up structural flaws; make sure you are considering the space, not the decor;
Read The Fine Print: Real estate ads are designed to sell property, not inform buyers; make sure you ask all the right questions and understand the lingo
Do Not Buy The Most Expensive House On The Block: In real estate, it’s not always the best policy to be a pioneer. This is one area where you want to keep up with the Joneses.

“Eric & Jamie Hayden were great to work with. They are very responsive and know the area well. They have a great team around them that made the process of selling very easy. We were out of state during the sale and they went above and beyond to assist in coordinating with us. Definitely recommend!”
“Jamie Stockstill held my hand through the entire process. Being a first time home buyer I had a million questions but she was always there, no matter what time of day, to answer my calls or texts. I always felt like she was working for my best interest. I will recommend her to anyone I come across looking to buy or sell.”
“Desiree Bridges went above and beyond to help us first time home buyers go through the, at times stressful, process. She constantly followed up on items and helped us stay on track, along with the bank and seller. Throughout the entire process she was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. She took our complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered every question. We never had to worry that something was slipping through the cracks on her end. And now we are satisfied home owners. Highly recommend and if I were gonna to buy another one I’d go with Miss Desiree again at Hayden Real Estate!!”
