As a Lake Nacimiento Real Estate agent for a over twenty years, I’ve worked with many military personnel that want to make the most of their time living in Central California. Here at Oak Shores Realty, we enjoy giving those that serve our country the best help possible and provide a wide range of services that are specific to their needs such as our Free Military Smart Buying Guide as well as a Free Personal Moving Coach!
If you are considering moving to Lake Nacimiento during your time of service at Fort Hunter Liggett or Camp Roberts; you may be wondering if buying is the best option for you. I’ve gathered three key things to consider as you look at buying an Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch home. Take a look!
1. Consider the Length of Stay– You’ll want to think through how long you’re going to be in Central California. Ideally, you’ll want to plan on being in a location for five years if you’re going to buy, but three years would still be a good length for buying a Lake Nacimiento home.
2. Consider the Option for Renting– If you aren’t sure if your plans will change, but you’re set on buying an Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch home; consider its renting appeal. If you do end up relocating after only a year or two of owning and you’re not able to sell at that time; there are a few questions you’ll want to ask. First of all, “Do I want to be a landlord?” and “Does this home appeal to a wide range of people?” This will help you determine if renting your home out would ever be an option given a change of plans.
3. Consider Your Costs– While you will receive a tax free housing allowance, you’l
l still want to keep your monthly payments to less than 30% of your take-home pay. This will also help keep costs lower for perhaps another military family that may look to rent from you in the future.
I hope these three key factors of buying a Lake Nacimiento home if you’re in the military are helpful as you look at buying! Of course I would love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your options, the current Lake Nacimiento Real Estate market and the services we provide for military!
I look forward to meeting you and helping you find your Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch home!
