Tips For First-Time Homebuyers

At H&H Homes, first-time homebuyers often come to us with questions about timing. How quickly can you move into your new home? How should you time the transition between selling your existing house and closing on your new house? Once you have found a community that suits you and your desired home is already built, you can expect to move in within a 30-45 day period. However, if you are interested in a newly constructed home, the timeframe is more like 6-8 months. If you own the house you currently live in, you’ll want to ensure that you are closing on the new house around the same time that you sell your existing house. We are happy to work with you to determine your unique needs around selling and preparing to close on a new home. Finalizing your contract also comes with some important final pieces – read closely to be sure that all of your needs are met. Home plans should correspond with any choices and upgrades you’ve made; you should see a specific price, and check out the default and notice provisions to help you understand how to plan for any financial problems or other disputes.
