Common Home Buying Mistakes to Avoid in 2024: A Guide for Buyers

Looking back at last year, I noticed some common mistakes made by buyers that I want to share with you.

Whether you're a first-timer or a seasoned homeowner, these insights could be the key to a smoother, more successful real estate experience.

1. Waiting too long to buy. ⏰
The anticipation of a price drop or lower interest rates can make you hesitate, but the real estate market is unpredictable. While waiting, prices may instead rise, and you might miss out on a home that is perfect for you.

2. Not sticking to budget. 📈
Touring homes out of reach or feeling the “snare of compare” can throw you off your budget track. Remember, a dream home isn't dreamy if it's making you lose sleep over mortgage payments.
Writing out your monthly expenses and making yourself a budget is very important so you look at where every dollar goes. We want you to love your home and be able to live comfortably in it.

3. Not leaning heavily enough on your agent.🙋🏻‍♀️
I can't stress enough how important this one is. As your agent, I'm here to shoulder your concerns and guide you around pitfalls. The clients I helped last year were wonderful, but a lesson I consistently learned was that every question you ask, and every doubt you share with me translates into a more seamless journey toward your dream home. Ask away!! There are no dumb questions. Thats why I am here … to answer questions and guide you every step of the way!

If you are teetering on the edge of these mistakes, I'm here to lend a hand! I’m your real estate resource!
