Benefits of buying a home near a good school district

Categories: Boerne Custom Homes Builders, Home Buyer News, New Braunfels Custom Home Builders | Posted: March 23, 2018

 

If you are looking for a New Braunfels custom builder to build your new home this year, whether you have kids or not it is a good idea to consider the school districts in the area you are looking to move. Why is this important even if you don’t currently have any kids, to buy a home in a good school district? Weston Dean Custom Homes shares why it is a smart move to into a home that is within a good school district.

The first reason to consider choosing a home that is within a good school district is the fact that when the time comes where you do need to sell your home down the line, your chances for selling your home quicker are much greater when your house falls within a good school district. Homes within a good school district often sell first, as families with kids want to purchase a home in a good school district for their kids to go too.

Here are some sites where you can compare schools and the district locations:

The second thing to consider is your future. Do you plan on having kids in your future? Will your new home be permanent or temporary? Is this just a starter home or a forever home? This can help you determine the school district you will want to be in as you search.

If you do plan on having children someday, it is a good idea to think about the school district you want your kids to go to, that will be close to your new home. It will also avoid you the hassle of having to pick up and move once you have kids, just to be in the school district you want to be in.

Lastly, purchasing a home in a good school district will protect you from the markets ups and downs. While you cannot predict that the market will stay good and allow you to make a profit when you go and sell, you will have the reassurance that homes in good school districts often keep their value the longest and wont typically drop as low in value if the market isn’t as hot as it is now.

The most important thing to keep in mind when buying a new home is to keep the things that are important to you on the forefront of your decision making process, while taking factors outside the home into consideration as well.

First time seller tips

Categories: Homeowner Tips, New Braunfels Custom Home Builders | Posted: March 16, 2018

 

While you have already been through the process of buying a home, the process of selling your home won’t be anything like it was when purchasing it. It doesn’t matter if you have been in your home for five years or for thirty years, when it comes time to sell your home there are some important factors to keep in mind in order to make the process go as smooth as it should. Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier New Braunfels custom homebuilder, shares things to know before placing your home on the market.

Assuming you are not planning to go the “for sale by owner” route in selling your home, you will need to find the right agent to help you sell it. Be aware that you will have to pay a commission and sign an agreement with that real estate agent or brokerage. Most contracts will tie you to that agent for anywhere from three to six months, so it is crucial you select an agent you are both comfortable with and feed confident in their abilities to sell your home.

Be sure by the time you select your agent, that you are truly ready to sell your home. Your home will only get one chance to make its first impression, so you need to be sure your home is in the best condition it can be in and is offered at a fair price from the minute it hits the market. If either of these things are off, you may have a home that is destined to sit on the market which can negatively affect you later. Be sure to take your real estate agents advice and price the home at what they believe it will sell for. Selling your first home can be an emotional process, and buyers often make the mistake of listing their home for more than it is worth which ends up hurting them. So, be realistic about what your home is worth and be ready to part with it at that price.

The final thing you will want to do is be prepared that once you put your home on the market you may get an offer and have to move soon. Don’t make the mistake of not being able to be out of the home for months, if the buyer wants a quick 30 day close in order to make the deal happen. Do your best to prepare your home to move and begin packing your things before you even put your home on the market. You will thank yourself once you have a buyer and the process of moving becomes reality!

 

Keeping these simple tips in mind will help you have a smoother time in selling your first home!
