Four things to keep in mind when buying a home in Rohester MN

1. Know Your Costs

    Make sure your agent explains your expenses. You should know about mortgage payments, closing costs, and any other expenses that you may come across. It's okay to ask your Realtor questions - take notes if needed. 

2. Pay Attention to Inspection Results

    Before closing on your home, you will have the opportunity to have a home inspection. Make sure you go over any issues that arrise with your agent. If you find any problems you feel need to be fixed, negotiation is expected. If there's anything you just can't overlook, you might want to consider walking away and looking for a different house. 

3. Don't Be Afraid to Ask to See a Home 

    You shouldn't just settle on a house. This is a huge purchase and a life-changing decision! Take your time, and see as many homes as you want. And don't hesitate asking to see a house multiple times. 

 4. Scope Out the Neighborhood and Community

    A good neighborhood is almost as important as how good your home is. Take a drive around the neighborhood at different times of the day. If you're comfortable doing so - ask the neighbors questions. If you're moving to a new town, make sure you familiarize yourself with the area.
