The 10 Commandments When Buying a New Home

As a team, we have seen too many closings fall through because of mistakes buyers make during the home buying process. Our goal is to help prevent those mistakes.  It is easy fall into the trap of buying a new home, getting excited about new furniture, for that oversized master or living room, and making that purchase. We are telling you “DO NOT DO IT!”  It can hinder your ability to buy your home. It could even mean, you are not able to qualify for your loan, now that the new purchase is added on. 

This may seem like common knowledge, but with a 40-50% off sale staring you down, it can be difficult to turn a blind eye until you know what the repercussions are.  Welch Team has created an easy to follow guide to help safeguard you from making small mistakes that can set you back from your dream home.  We call it:
