Beyond Back-of-the-Envelope: New Home Affordability

You want your approach to finding a new home in North Bethany to be at least somewhat hard-headed and businesslike. The financial stakes are certainly major, and to some extent, much of what your future lifestyle will be like will depend on making a good choice.
This is not to totally discount the emotional component that’s inevitably part of finding your new North Bethany home. You do want your family to feel good about the final choice—you’ll be moving to the dwelling that will become everybody’s center of operations.
So if your repeat visit begins to convince you that this really is the place you’ve been hoping to find, it’s the appropriate time to take a step back to do your most hard-headed, businesslike projection. This is beyond the back-of-the-envelope kind of calculation (the one that originally guided the price range you gave to your Realtor). This is time to take everything into account to see how well this new North Bethany home truly fits—on a number of counts.
A new home’s true affordability begins with the banker’s basic price formula—purchase price, mortgage, insurance and taxes. You should also contemplate the cost of having the property inspected and the closing costs (your Realtor® can give you a close estimate). But that’s not the whole picture—a new home’s true affordability also incorporates the difference between your family’s current expense profile and any factors that will change it.
For instance, if the square footage of the new home greater, you can expect that simple maintenance costs will rise proportionately (unless the new home’s condition is a good deal better than your current one). Utility costs may rise, too, if the living space is greater—unless more efficient systems are in place.
If the location will necessitate a change in driving distance or other transportation expenses, they should be taken into account. Does the new place have a significantly larger lawn or other landscaping features? If you have a green thumb and enjoy getting that kind of outdoor exercise (IOW, mowing), that won’t have much effect. If not, you’d better factor in a gardener’s bill.
There is one other element that’s easy to overlook, but accounting for it can eliminate the possibility that the whole move results in an unexpectedly depleted bank balance. Most people who are moving into a terrific new home forget to fully account for the few changes they’ll need to make before the place is perfectly suited their family. These could be minor, like changing out a light fixture that doesn’t fit the dining room table. Or they could be major, like addressing wholesale décor clashes that call for choosing between repainting the walls—or reupholstering— or even purchasing new furniture!
Helping you make sure your new North Bethany home is a comfortable match for your family’s needs is a large part of the service I provide my buyers. If you are ready to take a look at the latest crop of North Bethany new home offerings, I’ll be standing by for your call!

On Selling Your Home in Delaware …When It’s Not Even Listed!

It’s the kind of “problem” many would like to have: a buyer has just made an offer on your home — and you hadn’t even listed it for sale!

Turns out, it’s not all that uncommon for “house-stalkers” (or their determined agents) to slip notes into owner’s mailboxes or just knock on the door and ask to buy the house. It’s a house-hunting strategy that has worked for all kinds of buyers who are unimpressed by the homes they find on the market.

For anyone up in the air about selling your home in Delaware, here are some questions that can lead to a rational decision:

Were you planning to sell in the future?

If so, how far into the future? 20 years? If that’s the case, unless it’s an astounding offer, better stay put. But if you were considering selling your area Delaware  home within the coming 5 years, seriously entertain the offer! Making the most of unexpected happenstances is a calling card of successful people from time immemorial.

Is the return on your investment substantial?

Except in a financial emergencies, selling your home in Delaware is never a good idea unless you are getting a solid return on your initial investment. (Not just the initial price: include renovations, additions and your own sweat equity). If the offer qualifies on this dimension, it’s time to engage a professional home appraiser to give you an expert view of what your property is really worth in the current market.

Are you ready to move?

We all have emotional connections to our homes, especially after we’ve invested much effort into shaping its look and feel. Part of your decision that’s as important as the financial side comes with considering where you would live after the sale. Gauge whether your excitement over a new house, neighborhood and even a new city outweigh the feelings you have for your current home.

If opportunity comes knocking at your door, it never hurts to consider! And if you are thinking of selling your home in town in any case, give me a call to go over the numbers!
