When you decide to make an offer on a home, your mind may be flooded with dozens of questions and concerns -- several of which may involve money matters, while others are about the condition of the house.

However, if you've had the house professionally inspected and made sure your income is sufficient to absorb monthly expenses, than you've already taken steps to prevent or at least minimize future challenges.

Since buying a home is such a big investment and there are so many emotional factors that could influence your decision, it's essential to stay focused, adhere to a budget, and be aware of what you need in order to be satisfied with your purchase.

The Financial Side of Things: Even though a mortgage broker or loan officer may approve you for a large mortgage, only you can determine whether you'd be comfortable making those monthly payments. In  addition to the cost of your mortgage, property taxes, and school taxes, there are also other expenses to consider and include in the equation. If you're moving into a larger house, for example, the cost of heating and/or cooling your home may be higher than you're used to. Poorly insulated houses can also have a negative impact on home energy costs.

Another key factor to think about when you're figuring out the affordability of a potential new home is property maintenance, the cost of HVAC service, and miscellaneous expenses, such as appliance repairs, plumbing leaks, and electrical services. Some neighborhoods, residential developments, and condos also require a monthly Homeowner Association (HOA) fee, which can potentially put a burden on your cash flow situation. A good rule of thumb, of course, is to avoid spending beyond your means. While nobody would dispute the logic of that advice, it's often a lot easier said than done -- especially on an ongoing, consistent basis.

Non-Financial Priorities: The only way to know what you truly want and need in a new home is to clarify your goals, requirements, and wishes. Making lists, discussing it with your partner, and visiting lots of homes for sale will help give you the ideas, the inspiration, and helpful points of comparison you need. Online real estate listings and home improvement websites can also provide a wealth of practical ideas.

In addition to having enough bedrooms and bathrooms to meet your family's needs, it's also important to feel comfortable with the quality of the school district, the amount of noise in the neighborhood, and the traffic level on nearby streets. Proximity to recreation, shopping, and other amenities can also make the difference between your ideal home and one which doesn't quite make the grade. Privacy (or the lack, thereof) is also a major issue which can impact your satisfaction with a real estate purchase. While it's good to approach home buying with a sense of optimism, the best time to weigh all the pros and cons is before you sign the final papers at the closing table!

In a sellerís market, you shouldnít have a home thatís simply sitting there. If a home isnít selling and the market is hot, something must be wrong. There are many different reasons that your home isnít selling. Below, youíll discover some of those issues and what you can due to remedy the problems.


You Need To Adjust Your Expectations


Many people put their homes on the market expecting high results. While itís good to have confidence, it can be detrimental to your home sale. Great expectations can lead to an overpriced home, a lack in marketing efforts, or lowering the price of the home too late. All of these situations can be detrimental to your home sale. Research and hiring a realtor to help you with the sale can keep you organized and assist ou in staying on top of the market. 


 You Donít Understand Home Values


If youíre selling your home on your own, you may not have priced the property correctly especially if you have no professional experience. This is where a realtor comes in. A real estate agent can do the professional market research that finds the sweet spot for a price on a home for sale. Knowing that price is one of the best ways to sell your home fast. Without a well-valued home, it could sit idle in a good market. 


Your Home Is Neglected


If you have been neglecting various projects around your home, you could find that itís more difficult to sell your home. Buyers want the best house for the lowest possible price. Homes that have been properly maintained with the right HVAC maintenance, yard upkeep, and regular appliance services are more likely to be scooped up fast by buyers. 


Before your home even goes on the market, you should do any tasks around the house that you have been neglecting. The investment of both time and money will be worth it for you in the long term when you go to sell your home. 


The Photos Arenít Professional


The marketing efforts used to sell a home are very important. On the top of this list is the photos that represent the house. Most home buyers begin their search online. This means the first impression that they get of your home is from pictures. If these are not well done, it could be very detrimental to your home sale. 


For good photos, be sure that you get rid of all the clutter from your space before the pictures are taken. Itís really best to hire a professional to deal with his aspect of home marketing. If you must take the photos on your own, using a better camera than that a cell phone provides can really be a step up in the picture taking process.
