White Gables: Beginning the House Hunt

Maybe you've been house hunting for months or you've just started the search, there are several things you should know about the hunt. It doesn't have to be a chore; in fact, it can be a learning experience and even when you don't find the house you want after ten open houses, you will realize what you "don't" want in your new home. Chances are you know the ideal area where you would like to buy and now it is time to put some action behind your desires to buy a new home in Summerville. Begin the process with a list of some sort, even if you don't like making lists. It can be a helpful tool to distinguish what you need to do and what you have already accomplished, as well as what is negotiable to you in the final purchase decision.


Get your Ducks in a Row
There is nothing wrong with visiting open houses, scanning through the housing magazines, and even forging a relationship with a local real estate agent but before you start getting serious about a particular property, know what you're working with. Simply stated, before you can buy a new home in Summerville, you have to know what you can afford, how quickly you can move, and what you need to do in order to make it all happen. Do you have a current house that needs to sell first or are you renting and need to move into a new house with a certain time frame? These factors will all contribute to your overall ability to move. When you decide to do a semi-custom build with Crescent Homes in a neighborhood like White Gables, you will need to ensure the build will be completed by the necessary date. The team at Crescent Homes is available to walk with you every step of the way to make sure your move is as easy as possible. They are able to provide timelines so you can plan accordingly.


Funding the New House
Possibly the biggest headache of a buying a new home is the financing. One of the benefits of working with a company like Crescent Homes is that they are able to guide you through the entire process from start to finish.

For a neighborhood like White Gables in Summerville, the local lenders are in the area and are available for home buyers to meet with to discuss options face-to-face.
