When buying a home, you want to make educated decisions, especially if you’ve rented housing for a long period of time and are not familiar with long-term residential situations.

Home ownership can have many advantages such as increasing your equity and providing tax benefits, but also requires certain responsibilities such as property taxes and maintaining facilities. Consider all options, such as custom built home vs. manufactured homes, before narrowing your search.

You may also want to contact a mortgage broker about your financial/credit situation when searching for a home, so you can determine your price range.

You can determine your home’s basic set-up and everything you think should be included in your home. Make sure to leave room for changes because you probably won’t find everything you want in a home. Make a “pros and cons” list and prioritize each item, so you’ll have a good idea of what you definitely want and what you’re willing to live without.

These resources can help you find your next home while saving time, money, and stress. Remember to print out or “bookmark” vital information during your search.

Sometimes you can find interesting items on the Web not related to your home buying research. Make a checklist of the information you need to find and keep it by the computer so you can focus your research.

When you actually find your next home, be aware of legal issues, especially when buying from an owner instead of a real estate agent. Many of the previously mentioned Web sites contain legal information that can help. You may also want to consult your lawyer or seek legal counsel when purchasing your home.

Toledo offers a wide variety of situations for all families and lifestyles. Good luck on finding your next home!
