Common San Diego Home Buying Mistakes

Whether you're a first time buyer or an experienced buyer in San Diego, there is still room for mistakes. When it comes to your biggest investment, you don't want to leave anything up to chance. 

Choosing the Wrong San Diego Agent

Choose an agent who knows the location you're interested in and is experienced selling homes in your price range

Being Too Picky

If you expect to find a house that meets all your requirements, you might be searching for a long time. It's important to be willing to compromise a little when it comes to what you need and want in a home.

Buying the First House You See

Even if you fall in love with the first house you look at, it's still a good idea to see what else is out there. You might be surprised to find something even better.

Buying a House That's Not Right for Your Family

There are some things that you should not compromise on. You could end up in a home that is too small for your family or in the wrong area.

Not Seeing the Home as an Investment

Buyers often forget that a home is more than just somewhere you live, it is an investment. It is important to look ahead and consider the future resale value of the home even if you don't plan on selling for a long time.

Not Additing It Up

Before even looking at homes, it is important to know what your price range should be. This means researching and calculating out how much you realistically can afford. It's better to know this before getting your hopes up.

Not Hiring a San Diego Inspector

Skipping home inspection might save you some money, but in the long run, it might cost you a lot more. There are many things a professional inspector will be aware of that would go unseen by the average person.

Not Hiring a San Diego Agent

The process of buying a house can be timely and complex. It is always in your best interest to hire an agent to guide you through the home buying journey.
