Scrolling through online listing photos, scouting for the best location, and pondering décor in your home or condo is fun. But the home search itself is not the only enjoyable experience; the entire Wintergreen Resort real estate buying process can be pleasant when you have access to the best tools.
Here are the top five resources you should use to make buying a Wintergreen or Stoney Creek home easier and enjoyable.
1. A Wants vs. Needs Checklist
First determine what price, location, size, and any special features you must have. Then you can hone in on your favorite properties by searching for additional features that you would prefer.
2. A Mortgage Payment Calculator
What do you want your monthly mortgage payments to be? We have an easy mortgage payment calculator you can use to find out how much you can afford for a home. This tool takes into account the length of the loan, the interest rate, and annual tax and insurance to calculate how much you will pay every month.
3. A Reliable Home Search Tool
If you are using national real estate sites to search for Wintergreen homes for sale, keep in mind that you are not seeing all the properties that are for sale. HousingWire reported that websites such as Zillow show fewer listings than are available in many areas, which means you could be missing out on the best option.
The best source for your home search is a Wintergreen Resort real estate agent with a database of available properties called the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
4. A List of Recently Sold Homes
If you are thinking of buying, ask us for recent comparable sales. It’s the only way you can really know how the value of the home you’re considering stacks up against what others have recently paid.
You should also ask us about current Wintergreen Resort real estate market conditions. Want to take a peak under the door mat first? We have some captured some macro-level market stats about the local real estate market you can review now.
