Michigan Homebuyer beware- Don’t make these 5 costly mistakes

I have 18 years of experience in real estate and I have seen too many Michigan home buyer mistakes that could have been avoided.  I want my buyers to make good strong financial decisions.  I want YOU to avoid a money pit.  I want You to make money when you sell the home in the future especially if you have to sell sooner than you planned.  Here are 5 costly home buyer mistakes that I hope you avoid.  Especially if you are a first time home buyer or a buyer moving to Michigan

Here is a beautiful patio

  1. Not planning

This house is going to be one of your biggest financial assets in the future and a source of many memories.  Think about drive times to and from work.  Drive time to family and friends homes.  Also drive times to places you like or go a lot.

Also think about what your needs and wants in a home are.  By putting them down on paper will help you crystallize what is most important to you in your home search.  For example your wife may want a kitchen that opens to the family room and you need a 3 car garage.  Those are two important priorities to stick to.  Knowing what is most important to you will help you make better decisions.  Remember no house will be perfect.  No house will have everything you want.  So when you prioritize what is important to you then finding your dream home will be easier.

  1. Listening to a lender and  taking on too much debt. 

Doing it the wrong way will cost you money.

One of the first things people should do when they are thinking about buying a home is figure out your own budget.   Do not listen to a lender and get over qualified.  You should know what you can afford in a monthly mortgage payment before you visit a lender.  You need to be comfortable with the payment.  Don’t forget to include taxes and insurance in your payment projection.

You want to be able to live and not be house poor.  You don’t want to lose the house in foreclosure because you can not afford it.  Remember house buying is all about you.  What you want, what you can afford.  Your agent should be there to provide the information you need to make a good decision.  Not to rush you, not to tell you that you should make a choice out of just 3 or just 5 homes they provided.  A good agent wants you to be a smart informed home buyer!

  1. Not differentiating between needs and wants

Do you need a kitchen Island or just want it?

Finding the dream home you want can be a frustrating process.  If only this large kitchen was on that homes property with the third house’s finished basement.  With some many features to look for in a potential home, finding just the right home can become difficult and confusing. Breaking your dream list of desired criteria into two categories, must-haves and wants, will make the process easier. Do you really need a pool, or could you do without one? What about a second bathroom? Could it be in the basement, or could it be a half bath?  Understanding that a perfect home doesn’t exist and the difference between your “wants” and “needs” will make the home selection process much easier and smoother.

I have seen buyer’s finally end up with a home that doesn’t have their needs fulfilled and then they are having to sell and re-buy again.  One couple needed good schools for their daughter and wanted a finished basement.  They found a house with an amazing basement but the house was in a so-so school district.  They ended up selling in 2 years to move to a good school district.  Remembering what you really need in a home will keep you from making the same mistake.

 

 

Decor makes a home

  1. Not recognizing the whole value

Some home buyers buy a home based on decor and furniture of the seller.  Remember it is not going to be there when you move in.  It is the same way with wall colors.  I have had buyers turned off on a home when it is painted in dark colors.  Look beyond all of that.  When numerous cosmetic updates are needed in a home, it can be difficult to see a home’s true value.   Can you make it your own at a reasonable cost to you?  Include that cost in when comparing it to other homes.  Sometimes homes that need cosmetic updates are over looked by other buyers making it a bargain for you.  Some times, buyers let the condition of a home disproportionately affect their valuation of it. We often see buyers choose a home in excellent move in condition over a home that, with some minor cosmetic updates, would be much more valuable for the money.  Sometime home buyers over pay for that excellent home.  Don’t be upside down if you can avoid it.  Be a smart home buyer.

  1. Ignoring your agent’s advice

A large patch of mold in the basement that can be fixed

Most agents are not going to steer you wrong, or give you bad advice on purpose.  Their advice comes from past transactions and what they know and have seen.  Stress and confusion sometimes can come from buying a home when you do not know or understand that something may be a normal occurrence in the home buying process.   Ask your agent what they think.  For example you will always have something wrong with a home when you do a home inspection.  You just have to figure out whether it is a deal killer, or whether it can be corrected, or whether is a minor issue.  It is the same way with mold.  Mold has become more common in the attic.  To some home buyers it scares them to death.  If you read about it you will learn that it is easily re mediated.  Yes if you have major allergies you should move on to a different house, but in many cases it is not a reason to bail if the seller is going to have it re mediated by a professional.

We sometimes see a buyer that says every house is poorly built or every house is over priced.  If you go in with a mind set like that then you are going to have issues buying a home.  I have met buyers like that and seen them still looking a couple of years later and on their 3rd or 4th agent.  A good agent will guide you and will answer your questions honestly.

I hope these 5 costly mistakes home buyers make is something you will not do now.  Good luck on finding your new home and if you need a good agent in your corner give me a call or text at (248) 310-6239

What is Livonia Like – Metro Detroit relocation guide

Greenmead Historical VillageLivonia is a community in Western Wayne County that has I-275 and I-96 running through it.  That makes it easy to get to the airport, Ann Arbor, or downtown Detroit.  Those stops are just a 20 minute ride.  So you can go see any of the professional sports teams like the Red Wings, the Lions, or the Piston in about a 20 minute ride.  You can get to concert venues, or the Eastern Market (our big farmers market downtown), or to a play easily.  If you travel a lot then the short 20 minute ride to the airport will give you more time to spend with your family.  Traveling for your job is hard enough without spending a long time on the road to get to the airport.  Living in Livonia will cut down your travel time.

There is never enough information sometimes to get you acquainted, so I thought I would provide you with more.  Here is a quick little aerial video of Livonia.  I would call Livonia both a blue collar and white collar community.  You will find homes that have basements, 2 car garages, brick exteriors, 3 bedrooms, and one plus baths.  You will find both ranch homes, colonials, tri -level and quad level homes.  You won’t find many bungalows, or tudors in Livonia.  Nor will you find big luxury estate homes here.  Yes there are some homes that sit on large lots, but many of Livonia homes are subdivision homes.

Livonia is not a run down or “tired” community.  You will find that most of Livonia subdivisions and homes are well manicured and nicely kept up.  There are not very many homes in the city that I would call a disaster.  The City of Livonia has a vacant home inspection and they use it to make sure a home is not bringing the whole neighborhood down.  If a house is breaking the city codes for not cutting the grass, or having an abandoned vehicle in the yard, the cities’ code enforcement officer will be out there making sure they clean the mess up.  They won’t let one house or one home owner ruin or run down a neighborhood.  You are not going to find abandoned or burnt out houses in Livonia.

 

Most of the city offices are at 5 & Farmington

Livonia public schoolsIf you are looking for a rural community with homes with lots of privacy or acreage then you are going to have to drive about an hour from downtown Detroit.  Yes there are some communities that will have a few homes like that.  Livonia does have a few homes that have big lots, but nothing in the way of wooded lots on 5 acres.  Livonia is an urban community, that has all the conveniences you are probably already used to.  There will be pharmacies, restaurants, grocery stores,fast food joints, banks, doctors, and dentist offices all within a mile or two of your home in Livonia.   You will find most of the big box stores you are used to within a 20 minute ride.  Livonia has several large strip malls and an indoor mall too.  Plus you can get to several other large malls within a 20-25 minute ride.

You may have to move to SE Michigan because of a job transfer.  Livonia is a community that you should put on your list to check out because of the low crime.    You won’t find gangs running the streets or rampant crime.   I would say Livonia’s crime is random crime or domestic issue’s.  A murder is rare in the city.  A carjacking or mugging is even rare.  You do not have that type of criminal element in the city.  Your children will be safe playing outside.  You will be able to walk safely to your car, or around at night.  You can job in the park as a single women and not be afraid of being attacked.

Top Holly real estate agents

If you are looking for a real estate agent then you may learn a little bit from this article.  It is about top Holly real estate agents and what really makes them a good agent?  If you look at ads for real estate agents in Holly Michigan you will see many will claim to be #1 in their office, company, or area.  It’s sometimes a grey area or marketing hype to claim to be number #1.  I hate to say it but some agents will out and out lie.  Some may be #1 for listing but not getting the house sold.  You really don’t know what #1 really means.  What is important to you is that you hire a Holly realtor that helps you and is honest.  A Holly real estate agent that is full time, has experience, and has good reviews.  You want to hire a real estate agent with a track record.  You don’t want an inexperienced newbie that may make a costly mistake on your home sale.  Experience does matter!  When you look for a Holly MI realtor you want to look for a real estate agent that is not out for themselves.  An agent that is not going to be looking to line their pocket with your money.

old kitchen      I recently had a client hire me simply because I was honest.  They were just listing a small house in Highland.  It was a mess.  They had inherited it and the previous owner had done nothing to it.  It was originally a lake cottage that sat across from the lake.  It needed a roof.  The carpeting was probably 25 years old.  The kitchen was original to the house.  One of the bedroom ceilings had fallen in from a leak from the roof.  The wood windows were probably from the 1950’s.  The house walls were paneling in many cases.  The chimney needed tender loving care as it was block and some of it had chipped.  It needed to have a cement coat to smooth it out and the new stone finishes they have would make it look great.  The facia boards were rotted from lack of painting.  Yard was over grown and there was no curb appeal.  Of course the deck needed work.

In other words it was a fixer upper.  It needed any where from $30,000 to $60,000 of work depending on how you looked at it. I came in there and showed the owner the comps of recent sales.  On the high side she maybe could get $90,000 to a $100,000 if we could find a person who was going to fix it up for themselves and live in it.  There were very few homes in Highland that were in that price range.   It is the same way with Holly.  There are very few homes in the low price ranges.  It would be still a deal for them.  It would be a deal because they would have lake access and possibility of putting a boat on the lake.  If we couldn’t find a home owner then a flipper would want to buy it at $65,000 to $75,000 so they could make a profit.  Some flippers would want to pay even less.

Unfortunately in the real estate business there are some agents that are out for themselves.  This “good” Holly real estate agent that had met with this Highland home seller last year offered to put it on the market for $60,000.  It would have been a quick sale for the realtor to some flipper.  But this client would have missed out on the possibility for more money.  This story gets worse.

This “top” Holly realtor said that they would buy the house right now for $40,000.  It would be a “first” flipping project for her son.  $40,000   Now if you are selling a house in Holly, Milford or Highland Township or any where in metro Detroit and the realtor offers to buy the house at a number THEY SET you need to run.  If you put the number out there and the real estate agent offers to buy it then it is a different matter.  You set the price it’s ok.  If they give you a low price and offer to buy it……that’s only in their best interest.  That’s not the real estate agent you want to hire.   In the other scenario the Holly real estate agent has the knowledge and is taking advantage of the seller.  As a home seller if a real estate agent offers up a value and then offers to buy it you need to do some research.  Look at the Zestimate on Zillow.  Look at your state equalized value.  Call another realtor to see what they think the house is worth.  It is a huge red flag for a real estate agent to offer up a price and offer to buy it right away.  If a realtor is offering to buy your home and you have not set the price I would bet in many cases it is going to be low price.  I believe it is about getting YOU the best price possible, not just getting the home sold.

Especially if the real estate agent is going to flip it and not live in it.  They want to make a good profit.  If you want to get the best price for your home, get another opinion.  The home seller in Highland was knowledgeable and knew $40,000 and $60,000 was on the low end.  She didn’t want anything to do with this agent and you shouldn’t either.

She called me and got some honest numbers.  We ended selling the home for $90,000 to a guy that had gone through a divorce and wanted to start over.  In the end the seller was happy because she was treated fairly and honestly.
