moving yourself, you should find a few friends or family members that will be
willing to help as soon as possible.
New Homes vs. Older Homes
Another decision you will have to make is whether to buy a new home or look for
an older one. Most first time homebuyers usually buy an older home, but this
should not deter you from visiting a few builders to see what they are charging for
the size home you are looking for.
Older homes may cost less, but they can be riddled with problems. In this book,
you will learn what to look for when viewing a home, what to include in your
purchase offer, and what to expect from a home inspection. There are many older
homes that will need only minor repairs.

Chapter 1 - Location, Location, Location
Choosing where to live is almost as important as the type of home you want to
live in. While this is a very personal decision, there are pros and cons to every
neighborhood. But wherever you want to live, you will have to know where the
highways are located, grocery stores, schools, and how far from work you will be.
Buying a home means more than the structure you will be living in. It is also the
community and the accessibility to places and events that mean the most to you
and to your family.
Finding The Right Neighborhood
How will you know you have found the right neighborhood? There are many ways

The neighborhood may remind you of a happy memory
You will be close to places you frequent often
The neighborhood aesthetics are pleasing, or
The rest of your family is pleased
You may feel one emotion or five when you turn the corner onto the street where

once you move into the home.
How Clean Is This Neighborhood?
You should look at the neighborhood at different times during the day to see how
those who live in the neighborhood take care of it. If there is a lot of trash on the
ground, the yards are not kept up properly, or there are old signs posted on trees
and telephone poles, then the neighborhood may not be for you.
If the neighborhood looks clean and you see people outside caring for their lawns,
then you may have found a community of people who care about where they live.
This is an important factor if you are planning on living in the neighborhood for
many years. All too often people will buy homes only to discover that they live in
a neighborhood where people do not have respect for their property or the
property of others. This can make selling the home much more difficult in the
