The process of buying a home is not only stressful, but it can also be complicated if you are working without a reputable agent. Additionally, navigating the buying process without the expertise of an agent can also leave room for mistakes. Below are some of the most common mistakes that homebuyers have made so far in 2021. 

Buying without establishing a budget.

A homebuyer should have a clear understanding of their budget. Many buyers neglect to sit down and calculate how much they actually afford. Before you place an offer on a home, a buyer needs to know how much they afford to pay towards their mortgage every month . This simple step will save you from stretching your budget too thin and stressing over your monthly payments.

Failing to account for property taxes.

One significant expense that is often overlooked by homebuyers is property taxes. Buyers should understand that property-related taxes are inevitable, and therefore they must be factored into their decision-making process. Property taxes can sometimes push a home out of a buyer's budget. Also, it is beneficial to look at the tax history in the local neighborhood to gain an understanding of what to expect in the coming years. 

Disregarding the competition.

Real estate is one of the most competitive industries in our country today. We are currently in a sellers’ market due to the low inventory levels this year. Buyers who are serious about buying a home in 2021 must understand how quickly homes are flying off the market. In many cases, a buyer needs to make an offer on a home immediately if they are serious. Unfortunately, buyers today do not have the luxury of thinking long and hard about whether to submit an offer on a home. Always expect competition when you begin your home search.
