How to Buy a House: The 4 New Rules That Can Make or Break Your Offer

Buying a home is something that everyone is going to do at some point. This is also one of the hardest things that you will ever do. This is because there are so many things that you should consider, in order to be able to purchase a home successfully. With these 4 new rules, you will be able to make it easier to find and to purchase a home:

Having an approved mortgage before you start looking for a home

Before you are starting to hunt for your home, you need to make sure that you already have an approved mortgage loan. Then, the chance that your offer is going to be accepted is high. Sellers want to know that if you are going to offer a price on the home, that you are able to pay for it.

There are many people that are putting in offers for a home, without an approved mortgage. Then, the deal might fall through.

Be aware that you are going to go from home to home until you find the right one

Buying a home and putting in offers for a home isn’t something that you can do in a day. You need to know that you are going to run from one home to the next before you are going to find the right one that you can put in an offer for.

Don’t put in an offer for the first home that you find. There might be something better out there. But also don’t discount every potential home due to them not being perfect, with some simple tools like a band saw and a table saw you can quickly adjust the living spaces to fit your needs.

Don’t put in a too low offer, if you really want to purchase the home

When you are going to put in an offer, you need to make sure that you are considering the asking price as well. You don’t want to put in a too low offer. There might be someone else that is considering the home, and their offer might be higher and closer to the asking price.If you really want to purchase the home, the offer should be reasonable. Otherwise, you might lose the home.

Make sure that you know what you want before you start looking for a home

Before you are going to give offers on homes, you need to make sure that you know what you are looking for. By making a list of things that you need in the new home, it will be easier to spot the things that you need and you won’t purchase something that you actually can’t afford.

Many people are making this mistake. They think that they can afford the home, but at the end of the day they didn’t consider the things that they need and just looking at how luxurious the home is.

Don’t worry if it’s not perfect

You can always make improvements to turn a not quite perfect home into your perfect home, we suggest starting with the outside, get yourself a pressure washing something with 2700 psi and clear down any patio and siding, instantly this will make your home seem 100% better.

Buying a home is hard and a frustrating process. It is important that you make sure that you remember these four rules if you want to make purchasing your home as fast and easy as possible. And, remember your budget. You don’t want to pay more than what you can afford. Click here for more information: https://placerealestate.ca/

St Lucia – Island of Luxury and Romance

St. Lucia, a small island in the Caribbean of approximately 238 square miles, is covered with tropical forests. The climate during the rainy season (July through December) is mostly in 80 degrees (Fahrenheit) and rains occasionally. The St Lucia Villas resorts along the water’s edge have a plethora of water sports and when you are tired of being in the water or laying in the sun or sitting at the swim-up pool bar you can drive to the rainforest and glide through the treetops on a zip line.

We visited Cap Maison where we found private villas with plunge pools and a large dining area. You can walk down 63 stairs to get to their beautiful private beach. Almond Smugglers Cove and Almond Morgan Bay (both all-inclusive) are beautifully landscaped properties that cater to families. They have an outstanding children’s program for ages 2 up to 17 years of age. Cotton Bay Village is a collection of villas, condos, and apartments; they are not all-inclusive but have a restaurant on site.

Bay Gardens Beach Resort is a little welcoming property, not all-inclusive but offers’ three meal plans and has three restaurants on site; Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort is a sizeable property offering private villas with beautiful views of the ocean. They are not all-inclusive but offer meal plans.Get some updates here!

While we were there we went Zip lining, which was enormous fun, drove through the rainforest, went shopping, did lots of water sports and explored several hotel and resort properties during our stay. We found something for every budget, crime is almost nonexistent. And the natives are warm and welcoming.

We stayed at Sandals Regency. Sandal’s Resorts have three properties located on the island, each with a different spark and all have excellent restaurants and variety of watersports included in your stay. We were looking for a way to see the island and see other hotel and resort properties while we were there.

Villa Beach Cottages is a small boutique hotel on the Caribbean Sea. Offering 10 villa suites in a beautifully landscaped setting showcases the rich St. Lucian Villas architectural heritage with high cathedral ceilings, intricate gingerbread fretwork, jalousie shutters and original handcrafted wooden furniture. There are no restaurants on site; however, the property is a short walk from the downtown area where several restaurants and shops can be found.Visit website from https://stluciatimes.com/2017/10/12/saint-lucia-growing-strength-strength-2017

estate villaAnse Castanet is not for the frail or persons with mobility issues. It is at the top of a very rugged road that is not paved, I would not recommend a stay here in the rainy season due to the road being flooded by a waterfall and the rooms are all open air on the backside and the rain goes into the rooms. It is a very expensive property ($14,000 to $19,000 U.S. per week double and does not include any meals. This property would be great during the summer months except there is no air-conditioning.
Jalouise Plantation is on 350 acres and is nicely spread out. It also is private villas with plunge pools but without any cooking facilities except in the three bedroom villa. They have several restaurants on site.

Lastly Coconut Bay hotel is St Lucia Villas all-inclusive close to the international airport on the south side of the island. This property has a plethora of activities for young and old. They have a large spa and meeting rooms. Nearby is a separate area for adults only on the east end of the property. This is the finest deal on the island and very well-liked.
