Real Estate advice- who are you taking it from?
One of the most valuable pieces of real estate advice that I would give to any first time or second time home buyer is to really consider who you are taking your advice from.
It is natural to talk with our families, friends and co workers about the things that are going on in our lives.
Purchasing a home is likely something that if it is on our radar, we are talking about it with the people that we know.
During these chats, it is also likely that we will be listening to many pieces of well intentioned but not necessarily in our best interest types of real estate advice.
My recommendation would be to take your advice from the professionals that work every day in the Real Estate space.
Knowledge Based Advice is the Best Advice
- Mortgage Brokers
- Financial Advisors
- Home Inspectors
- Insurance Brokers
All of the above are well versed in what today’s space looks like.
These professionals can share with you knowledge based advice that will be in your best interest. As a result, you will meet your goals without feeling disappointment along the way.
Ultimately, your Real Estate Team will have your best interests in mind when they are imparting advice.
Uncle Jim likely has your best interests at heart when sharing advice. Realistically speaking, he may not necessarily be pointing you along the easiest path.
Unless you are professionally invested in the real estate field, it is impossible to provide appropriate guidance to others on how best to navigate a purchase or sale. Not only is the market ever changing, but there is a constant learning requirement to stay on top of potential legal issues, shifting environmental concerns, changing insurance requirements, and so on.
When it comes to real estate advice, listen to the Professionals that work every day in that space.
