Sometimes homebuyers in Stowe (or in general) take on the project of finding the home they like without knowing exactly what they need or want. This can make for a random and frustrating search that often wastes unnecessary time. On occasion, some people think they can even outsmart sellers while negotiating purchase price, while in reality they might be getting a worse deal altogether.

We’ve compiled a short list of the most common concerns we have for homebuyers; they are:

  • Viewing all of the homes that become available, instead of focusing on the ones that are in their price range.
  • Not knowing about all available financing options.
  • Not completely understanding the subtle art of negotiating price.
  • Over- or under-estimating the actual value of specific home amenities.
  • Choosing inspectors who may not be fully qualified.
  • Not requesting all of the appropriate inspections to be made.
  • Failing to consider all aspects pertaining to the new home, including the location (and reputation) of schools and other services.
  • Falling prey to exorbitant fees and outrageous rates.
  • Falling for the belief that bigger is better, thereby putting oneself in a precarious situation and buying the largest or most expensive property.
