Issues To Consider
ESTABLISHING YOUR HOME'S VALUE
The most important decision in today's market is right pricing. It is important to have an understanding of pricing strategies that take into account market extremes and identify the current competition. It is also important to understand that sold and pending comparable properties are considerations for assuring the property will appraise for the sales price, but in many cases not be the ultimate consideration of potential buyers.
SELLING YOUR HOME
Your home is unique, and so are you. Farnsworth Realty Management does not take a cookie cutter approach like some of the national companies may do. Instead, your Farnsworth Realty professional will customize a unique plan to market your home that will be tailored to your specific home and situation.
LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME
Finding the perfect home requires a considerable amount of time and a significant undertaking. At Farnsworth Realty, it is our goal to make this transition as smooth as possible. Some questions to consider are:
- Where do I want to live?
- Are there good schools nearby?
- Is shopping conveniently located?
- How far will I have to drive to work?
- What kind and style of a house do I want?
- How many bedrooms and bathrooms do I need?
- Do I want a yard to maintain?
- How much can I afford to spend?
Simply put, you can afford a house that costs as much as the largest monthly mortgage payment you qualify for. A quick way to estimate the size of mortgage you may qualify for is to take your gross monthly income (that's before taxes and other deductions) and multiply it by .28. Our associates will help you analyze your financial situation and arrange competitive financing and expert mortgage counseling.
