Summary of their experience
Missy was invaluable in my search for a home. I had specific requirements for a home in one neighborhood and she was able to find the home for me. The home was actually under contract when I first inquired about it months before, but it fell through and Missy contacted me that same day to let me know it was available again. She always kept searching and ended up putting me in the best situation to purchase my home. She was also fantastic in negotiating the final sales price. I would absolutely use Missy again and recommend her for her knowledge and attentiveness!

When you’re new to the real estate market and looking to buy your first home, the process can be overwhelming. Here are ten mistakes to avoid when buying your first home.

Not Getting Pre-Approved for a Loan

Don’t skip this step. Forgetting to get pre-approved for a loan is like going grocery shopping without a list. Getting pre-approved for a loan gives you a concrete idea of what you can afford in a house and will help you know what areas to shop in.

Choosing the Wrong Realtor

A real estate agent is your greatest resource during the buying process, so it’s important to choose one that best fits your needs. A good agent should be looking out for your best interest, not just focused on making a sale.

Putting in a Poor Offer on a House

When you are ready to make an offer on a house, be smart. Consult your real estate agent. They will be able to tell you if a home is priced too high and if you can get it for less, or if you should offer the full listing price. If you make too low an offer, the seller might not take it seriously and you could risk losing a home you love.

Neglecting the Home Inspection

A home inspection is one of the most important steps in the buying process, and it should not be ignored. A home inspection gives you an overview of the quality of the house you are buying. It can alert you to issues or problems that need to be fixed before you close the deal on your new home.

Putting All of Your Money Toward a Down Payment

When buying your first home, do not put all of your savings toward your down payment. Make sure you’re considering closing costs, inspection fees and other miscellaneous costs and be sure you have money set aside for them.

Misunderstanding the Costs of Buying a Home

The cost of a home isn’t just about the listing price. Consider closing costs, paying for home inspections, making repairs to your new home, buying furniture and the millions of other aspects that come with home ownership. Are you ready for all of that? Make sure you can stay afloat before diving into the deep end.

Buying More Than You Can Afford

This mistake can lead to a lot of regret and financial downfall. When buying your first home, make sure you can afford it. Don’t stretch your dollar as far as it will go just to get the house with great curb appeal, gourmet kitchen or walk-in closet. You can add most of those things to your home along the way, so don’t make the mistake of stretching your wallet too thin.

Forgetting About Property Taxes

You know you can afford to buy a house, but can you afford the town you want to live in? Explore the property taxes in the different towns where you might purchase a home, and make sure they fit into your budget.

Forgetting to Consider Resale Value

Resale value is important when you’re buying your first home. Buyers tend to stay in their first home for about four or five years. When buying your first home, make sure it is optimized for resale. If you wouldn’t buy a house with an outdated kitchen or bright green walls, chances are no one else will either.

Getting Too Emotional

Buying your first home is a stressful and emotional experience, but don’t let your emotions get in the way when making decisions. Getting too emotional may lead to a decision you might regret later. Make your decisions with your head, not your heart.

 

Front Door of a Home

Front Door of a Home

At least 88 percent of homebuyers begin the process online, looking at pictures on the listing site. Good photos and real curb appeal help entice buyers to check out your house in person. You want to make a great first impression, so don’t feel scared to make a statement — you want buyers to fall in love with your house. The fixes below are minor and budget friendly enhancements that can be done in a day to help make your house more inviting and appealing, and help get potential buyers to schedule a showing!
GLAM THE FRONT DOOR
The entry is a huge focal point for potential buyers, especially when it’s one of the first things they see. Create appeal by cleaning the front door — wipe it down, remove dirt, update the color with some paint. The front door should play off a home’s interior: add a kick plate, swag or a seasonal wreath to reflect the interior style of the house.
CREATE SYMMETRY
It is known that humans find symmetry beautiful – symmetry is attractive to the human eye, especially in nature. Symmetry is also appreciated in the design world for its familiarity, balance and it works with every style. Using symmetry to entice potential buyers is a quick and cost-friendly tool to the home seller: compose light fixtures, plants and front-door accents based on symmetry to create welcoming and inviting entryways and boost the house’s curb appeal.
MAKEOVER THE MAILBOX
If you have a mailbox, it can be a great way to accent your house and add a little touch of personality. If you’re going to replace the box, pick one that mimics the style and trim of the house. You also have the option of dressing up a mail box by painting the post to match the house’s exterior color, or you can surround it with flowers or other plants.
ADD OUTDOOR LIGHTING
A quick, easy, and budget friendly way of adding appeal to the outside of your house is to add outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting adds a little something extra, and it can also provide safety and security. Homeowners have many options for lighting, from wired to solar, and lights can be purchased at many retailers and hardware stores. Install landscape lighting along paths and trees.
PATCH UP THE GRASS
Pets, animals, weather and other events at your house can take a toll on your yard’s grass, and most buyers will notice a lawn that looks like it’s on its last leg. Cut out any dead spots and replace with sod, or, if you have time, replant with seed. If you live in a non-drought area, turn on the sprinklers: a lawn needs at least 1″ to 1 ½” of water per week and should be watered deeply 2-3 times per week.
INSTALL WINDOW BOXES
Window boxes can be a really budget friendly way to liven up the outside of a house. They help play up windows, and they can add a pop of color by way of plants or flowers. For a traditional look, choose boxes made of copper or iron, and pick painted wood for more of a cottage feel. Use a window box to play with flowers that will suit the lighting in the yard and the color scheme of the outside.
RENEW PLANTERS AND BEDS
Poorly maintained planters and flower beds can be a big letdown to potential buyers – especially when many view poor upkeep as an indication of what a house may look like inside. Be sure to prune overgrowth, pull weeds, plant extra flowers and add new mulch to restore life and color depleted by the sun and harsh weather. Adding a border around flower beds or along paths can be a great addition, and budget friendly. If your yard already has a border, clean and restore pieces that are worn or upgrade the stone altogether.
Another budget friendly fix you can do in less than a day is pressure washing any dirty siding, decks, patios, driveway or sidewalks. A pressure washer can be rented at any home improvement store for a small amount, and freshly washed pavement and siding can help make a home look revitalized. If you’re limited on outdoor space or have no yard, add some color by creating a container garden. These small gardens are easy to maintain and can easily be transported to your new residence once the sale is finalized. As a seller your top priority is getting the most out of your house — concentrating on small and easy fixes that are budget friendly can really help give your house that pop so many buyers look for.

The Shongum Lake is a private lake community which offers a resort like community right in your own backyard. Families who live near the lake and whom are members of the lake walk to the lake in the summer for family outings, ice-skate on the lake during the winter, and jog around the picturesque neighborhood in the fall and spring. Friday nights in the summer are Happy Hour where families and friends gather to enjoy the lake, weather, and each other’s company. Parties at the Lake House are always a big hit and parties for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day are huge community events that are truly fun for the whole family
