It's fun to dream about the kind of home you want to buy someday. Who doesn't like trawling through the real estate listings, making notes about those that match your idea of the ideal home, and wondering, could we afford this? That's fine as long as you're just entertaining yourself, but once you're serious about home ownership, this is not the first step to take. If you're really ready to take the plunge, put the shopping among Beavercreek homes for sale on hold and head over to your mortgage lender.
Buying a first home is a momentous occasion. But as you're probably aware, the buying process is not just about trawling through the real estate listings and scheduling tours of homes.

In simple terms, how are you going to pay for it?
Far too many prospective home buyers march forth in Lalaland, convincing themselves that they'll slap down a minimal down payment and figure out the financials later down the line. Those who take this tack can be in for some unpleasant surprises. We strongly suggest you square away how you will pay for that house you love among Beavercreek homes for sale before you even start shopping.
Here's some valuable information on down payments, and more, compiled by our REALTORS®.

If you're poised to list your home among Beavercreek homes for sale or Centerville homes for sale, your real estate agent has probably given you the lowdown on appraisals.

A potential buyer may need to order an appraisal on your home to see if it's worth what you're asking for it. They can then seek a loan for the amount that you're asking if the appraisal figure agrees with it.
Regardless of whether this is your appraisal or your potential buyer's, you will need to get ready and put your best foot forward. What kinds of things will be looked at for an appraisal? This isn't exactly a staging, but it has aspects of that process. For now, the appraisal prep step is more like a general sprucing up. So let's roll up our sleeves and get busy.

Don't you just love the way those renovation shows on cable TV get us all revved up to knock out walls, rewire electricity, or replace our old wooden floors with something "easy to clean"?
