Home Buyer's Guide - Initial Consultation
Ocean City real estate searches can get overwhelming with the various locations and property types that are available to choose from. A little strategic planning at the beginning of the process will go a long way in helping you find the perfect beach property.
The first step in the home buying process is to set-up a time to discuss what you are looking for in your new home and to answer any initial questions you may have. Important things to consider during this process include:
- Price Range - Your desired price range will have an impact on the property types and locations that will be available for you to choose from.
- Property Size - What size home or condo in terms of bedrooms and bathrooms will best suit your needs?
- Location - Which Ocean City real estate market areas are of interest to you? Location options will largely be dictated by the price range you want to stay in and the property size you are looking for.
- Features and Amenities - Determine the amenities and property features that are “must haves”. Keep this list to important items so you don’t overly restrict the listings that are available to you.
- Property Use - Your intended use of the property will have an impact on this process. As an example, there are certain Ocean City properties that are better suited for renting than others.
- Timeframe - How soon would you like to be in your new home? Overall market conditions will dictate the right time to buy. The key is being prepared and ready to move when the right opportunity presents itself.
After working through this list we will have a clear picture of the type of property that will best suit your wants and needs. I will set-up your property search account and email you the new listings that match these property specifications as soon as they hit the market.
