It would be just awesome if the buying and selling process for a house would be completed at the same time, but it needs everything to be planned carefully and perfectly. The deadlines, paperwork, research, enlisting, etc, is going to be a stressful task when you are planning to do both at the same time. However, still, you can manage it by keeping a few points in mind and making every move carefully.
Also, you should be prepared for the unexpected, at the same time. No matter how well you have planned the process and scheduled the timings, the things can go unexpectedly.

Real estate is probably one of not too many industries that requires customer involvement for 20 or even 30 years. It is not rare that citizens at the age of 70 and older get a 30 year mortgage. Yes, very likely that by that age they have a credit score with a good and long history.

Saving money for down payment, having a good credit score, finding the perfect house, etc., etc. These are all important things, and there is no way to avoid them. But there are also other thing, not directly related to the house, though directly related to your future life and comfort in the area. Continue reading
So you have a couple of furry friends and you are a little concerned about their comfort when finding a new house. That’s natural as dogs and cats can’t adapt to all environments as comfortably as humans. Humans can always turn things in their surroundings to make it more comfortable, which animals can’t. All in all, a challenging environment does not make for a very comfortable canine habitat. So as a responsible pet owner, you must look for a pet-friendly locality, when finding a house.
This is more relevant in today’s crowded cityscapes where most families are confined to apartments or villaments that do not have much open spaces for pets. There might be many neighbours who do not love to have pets around. Continue reading
