UPDATE: Home Buying For Smart People 2016
We created the free "Home Buying For Smart People" e-series more than four years ago, and since its launch, thousands of people have used its information to save (collectively) millions of dollars when they purchased a home.
The e-series is simply a collection of lessons on how to be better informed when you buy a home, and if you read some of the hundreds of testimonials that have been written by its subscribers, you will know that it has been well received.
One of the core messages throughout "Home Buying For Smart People" is that "things change!"
The internet is fast evolving, and the way that we shop for things, including homes, is changing at an alarming rate. So much so that is was time to update our advice on how to get the best deal possible when you purchase your next home.
Home Buying For Smart People Revisted
But there is more to this than just saving money.
Last year's survey by Chase Bank showed that 80% of recent homebuyers were not completely satisfied with their home within a year of the purchase date. They would have made different decisions had they known more about the home buying process.
Our goal here is to help educate our readers to better understand the home buying process for 2017 so that they join the 20% of home buyers who are thrilled with their home, even a year after the purchase.
As one of our customers recently wrote in a review of our company ... "This is the 3rd time I am going through this process of buying a home and this is the WAY IT SHOULD ALWAYS BE DONE. - Greg P."
Home Buying Process - Broken Down And Explained
The course breaks down the process of buying a home into key stages, with each one supported by topics that we believe every buyer should know before she or he encounters them in a transaction.
Again, the key is being prepared for what we know you are likely to encounter in an ever-changing real estate market.
It addresses what to expect from the market and what to expect from the seller(s) with whom you negotiate. But it also addresses the third-party ancillary services that you will employ (like home inspectors, termite inspectors (WDO), mortgage, title, warranty, etc.) during the process of buying your home.
Gone are the days of a one-page contract, today's buyer will face an intricate contract and addenda that requires the buyer to be either very knowledgeable or very trusting of the multiple experts with whom he or she employs during the home buying process.
So, what are you waiting for? It's free and you can subscribe to Home Buying For Smart People in less than a minute. All we ask is that you let us know what you think when you have completed the e-series, as we want to keep it the best source for consumers who want to buy a home.
