Considering buying a house

The other day a friend was asking me about whether or not I was ever considering buying my own home.  I told him, “Yes, of course,” — I’m just not in a position where I want to do that right now.  As we continued talking, I realized that there might be an option to do so in the near future.  I did some research and came across some ideas for moving forward.

According to the National Real Estate Advisors, they focus on getting returns on investment for their customers.  As I was considering how I might go about to get involved in real estate, I checked out one of the real estate advisors in my area, and checked out their website.  Though, I’m still pondering the move, I am gaining more information every day.

The challenges that are stopping me are:

  1. I’m not sure where to buy property at the moment.
  2. I’m not sure which advisor/agent to go with.
  3. I’m not sure how the process works, really.

Where to Buy Property

At the moment, I’m considering buying property in California, though, Florida is my second option.  I need to see what types of financing I might qualify for.  I’m currently looking into this to see what my options are– soon I will be moving forward.

Which Advisor/Agent

This is another challenge for me– which advisor or agent to go with.  My friend gave me a reference to a different agent, though, I’m considering all my options at this point.  I know that I want to find someone I can trust and whom will do a good job, though, I will be continuing to do more research and find the right person soon.

The Process

I’m learning more and more about the process as I do more research.  There are several great resources online, though, the challenge is to sift through all the information.  From there, I plan to double-check with a couple other people in my inner circle, and then decide on a direction to go.

Buying property is a challenge if you haven’t done it before.  There is a lot of contradicting information out there on the web.  I hope to make a selection soon, and update this blog post.
