· Buying a home will probably rank as one of the biggest personal investments one can make. Being organized and in control will contribute significantly to getting the best home deal possible with the least amount of stress. It’s important to anticipate the steps required to successfully achieve your housing goal and to build a plan of action that gets you there.
· Before you can build a plan of action, take the time to lay the groundwork for your decision-making process.
· First, ask yourself how much you can afford to pay for a home. Most manufactured home buyers here in the valley are downsizing or purchasing a second home (snowbirds). Determine how you are going to pay for the home, are you using equity out of your primary residence, Retirement savings, etc. Always consult with a financial advisor as to which is the best avenue in which to make this purchase. Quick cash offers are usually more appealing to sellers in this type of housing.
· Second, ask yourself where you want to live and what the best location for you and/or your family is. Things to consider:
· convenience for all family members
· proximity to work, school
· crime rate of neighborhood
· local transportation
· types of homes in neighborhood, for example condos, town homes, co-ops,
newly constructed homes etc.
