THE HOME BUYING PROCESS STEP BY STEP STEP ONE

Check Your Credit Report & Score

Before getting a mortgage or any kind of loan, you should always check your credit. According to the law, you’re allowed to receive one free copy of your credit report per year. You can do this by visiting annualcreditreport.com. Scores range from approximately 300 to 850; generally, the higher your score, the better loan you’ll qualify for. Don’t forget to check your report for errors. If there are any, dispute them. It may help your credit score.

STEP TWO

Calculate How Much You Can Afford

You can figure out how much you can afford by starting online. There are several online mortgage calculators that will help you calculate an affordable monthly mortgage payment. Don’t forget to factor in money you’ll need for a down payment, closing costs, fees (such as fees for an attorney, appraisal, inspection, etc.) and the costs of remodeling or furniture. There are loans available with little to no down payment; plan for 20% down.

STEP THREE

Find the Right Lender and Real Estate Agent

The right Realtor will make all of the difference. Check the listings in this directory to find one that is right for you. To find the right mortgage lender it is best to shop around. Ask lots of questions and make sure they have answers that satisfy you. Make sure to find someone that you are comfortable with and who makes you feel at ease. 30

|

Home Design 2013/2014

STEP FOUR

Look for the Right Home

Talk with your Realtor and make a list of the things you’ll need to have in the house. Ask yourself how many bedrooms and bathrooms you’ll need and get an idea of how much space you desire. How big do you want the kitchen to be? Do you need lots of closets and cabinet space? Do you need a big yard for your kids and/or pets to play in? Once you’ve made a list of your must-have’s, don’t forget to think about the kind of neighborhood you want, types of schools in the area, the length of your commute to and from work, and the convenience of local shopping.

STEP FIVE

Make an Offer on the Home

Now that you’ve found the home you want, you have to make an offer. Most sellers price their homes a bit high, expecting that there will be some haggling involved. A decent place to start is about five percent below the asking price. You can also get a list from your Realtor to find out how much comparable homes have sold for. Once you’ve made your offer, don’t think it’s final. The seller may make a counter-offer to which you can also counter-offer. But you don’t want to go back and forth too much. Somewhere, you have to meet in the middle. Once you’ve agreed on a price, you’ll make an earnest money deposit, which is money that goes in escrow to give the seller a sign of good faith.

STEP SIX

Get the Right Mortgage for Your Situation

There are many different types of mortgage programs out there, but as a first-time home buyer, you should be aware of the three basics: adjustable rate, fixed rate and interest-only. Talk to your Realtor and mortgage banker about the pros and cons of all three and choose the one that is best for your situation, and if you plan to take out a first and second you may use a combination.

STEP SEVEN

Close on Your Home

Make sure you get a home inspection before you close. It will be well worth the money spent since it ensures the property’s structural soundness and good condition. Setting the closing date that is convenient to both parties may be tricky, but can certainly be done. Remember that you may have to wait until your rental agreement runs out and the seller may have to wait until they close on their new house. Be sure you talk to your Realtor and your mortgage banker to understand all the costs that will be involved with the closing so there are no surprises. Closing costs will likely include (but are not limited to) your down payment, title fees, appraisal fees, attorney fees, inspection fees, and points you may have bought to buy down your interest rate.

STEP EIGHT

MOVE IN!

You’ve got your mortgage, closed the deal and now it’s time to move in!

tips for hiring

Trust your instincts

This person will likely be around your home for a while. If you suspect anything is amiss or you just get a strange vibe, don’t hire them.

2

Verify that the contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured.

Ask for proof and follow-up with the information you receive. For example, you can go to cslb.ca.gov/consumers/ and type in the license number provided to see for yourself. 34

Home Design 2013/2014

3

Find someone who specializes in your type of project.

The world has become increasingly complex and that goes for building, as well. If you are looking to overhaul your kitchen, make sure that this is not your contractor’s first rodeo.

4

Spell out the specifics in a detailed contract before the work begins.

This step is critical. Don’t wait for a problem to pop up before taking this route. Clear communication and a written agreement will save big headaches later.


a contractor 5

8

Find out who will actually be performing the work.

There’s no problem with bringing in subcontractors, in fact, that is often the best of course of action… but who will they be bringing in? It’s a valid question, be sure to ask it.

6

Supply your contractor with guidelines for working around the house.

What time should the work begin each day? Where should the crew park? What bathroom is available? These may seem like trivial questions, but they aren’t. Trust us!

7

Understand your responsibilities.

Ask the contractor what is expected of you. Again, communication is key and asking this question will reveal the level of the contractor’s professionalism.

Ask about any mechanic’s liens that may be in effect.

If your contractor has defaulted on any obligations it is possible that aggressive collection efforts could potentially involve a mechanic’s lien on your project. Ask the question.

9

Ask for samples and references.

Take a look at other work they have done. Ideally, physically go see it which will give you the opportunity to chat with the contractor’s former clients.

10

Research locally.

Is the contractor involved in the community? Do they participate in local events and have a reputation to protect? Resist the temptation to go with the lowest bidder who may not be in it for the long-haul.

Lay of th e L a n d sc a p e Our Central Coast weather provides the perfect growing grounds for a Mediterranean-influenced garden. It’s lush, inviting and generally low maintenance, filled with drought-tolerant plants that will thrive in our climate. What’s more, these gardens invite you to live outdoors year-round.

Basics of a Mediterranean Garden There are certain core characteristics that define Mediterranean style. First, there’s an emphasis on hardscape, with patios, courtyards, low walls and overheads defining the space. You won’t find vast expanses of green lawn; instead, plantings are more contained, and even the larger areas are more likely to be filled with shrubs, perennials, annuals and ground covers than fescue or bluegrass. Earth tones are the dominant colors on houses and outdoor structures, punctuated by bright accent colors like red and purple. Tile is popular, for both roofs and outdoor “floors,” though large pavers, gravel and materials like decomposed granite are often used.

Plant Ideas The plant choice is huge. Citrus, olive trees, rosemary and lavender are almost a requirement for a true Mediterranean feel, but branch out with other herbs, grasses and grasslike plants, roses, vines and even tropicals. Look for foliage that’s gray-green or a deep green (rather than emerald), preferably with boldly colored flowers. Though plants that originally hailed from the region are obvious inclusions, don’t overlook plants from places with a similar climate, such as Australia. And throw in some edibles; they’re a time-honored tradition.

Home Design 2013/2014


Finishing the Look The final touches include water features, pots and other accessories. Water features are key, but not the ponds of a natural or traditional landscape. Instead, put in a small courtyard pool or a fountain, either in the center of the space or on the wall. And, nothing says Mediterranean like terra-cotta pots. Rustic and contemporary furniture styles work well in these spaces, but be sure the pieces are strong enough to hold their own. Finally, a weathered look is key. A true Mediterranean garden is where you live, not just something you view. It should show some wear.
