Buying a Lake Nacimiento home may be one of the biggest investments of your life. It’s nothing to take lightly! It’s smart to do your research before buying, but unfortunately, there’s a lot of outdated advice and myths circling around the internet about the home-buying process. As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to fill you in on a few that are no longer relevant:
1. Wait until spring to buy. This is common advice in cold weather areas, because the weather is nicer in the spring and there are more homes for sale. This doesn’t apply to the Lake Nacimiento real estate market. The weather is great now, buyers want to be settled in their lake home by spring and summer, and we’ve got lots of listings on the market. No need to wait!
2. New construction is the best option. Many buyers think that new construction is the way to go, as it’s modern and current, and you have no fear of issues with plumbing, electric, etc. However, new construction is slow to come by, more expensive, and can lack charm. You may be better off buying an existing home that you can renovate to your liking, or buy land to build your own dream home on!
3. Make your first offer low and fast. Your first offer depends on the current conditions of the Lake Nacimiento real estate market. If there are lots of other buyers and competition is fierce, it’s wise to make your best offer first, and fast. If there is lots of inventory and not a lot of buyers, you can take your time and have more wiggle room. These are things we can discuss when you’re ready to buy!
4. The American Dream is a house with a white picket fence. You may have an idea of what your home should look like in your mind, but be willing to compromise. Homes on Lake Nacimiento come in all shapes and sizes, and we’ve got plenty of land listings for you to build your own home on, too. The important thing is to find a property near the lake, if that is what you’re after. Homeownership is homeownership, and something to be proud of no matter what you purchase!
