Ready to make your new home your happy place? Then, you need to sidestep these three rookie mistakes we see when buyers have bigger eyes than they can take on:
1. Making major changes too soon. Instead, move in, live, and discover exactly how you use your spaces before costly renovations.
2. Hiring a shady contractor. If you have small jobs (paint, flooring, etc.), do your research, ask friends for referrals, and don’t pay in-full upfront.
3. Overestimating your handyman skills. Sure, home reno shows make it look easy, but the reality is much different. Be honest about your DIY ability, and don’t hesitate to toss certain projects to the pros.
If you’re looking to buy your first (or next!) house, I’d love to help you avoid these mistakes and more!
