Kolo-Hronek Realty

HOME OWNERSHIP is the AMERICAN DREAM

KOLO-HRONEK REALTORS are experienced in all stages of the home-buying experience. They will walk you through the process of selecting a home, negotiating all items of the contract, closing the transaction and ultimately handling you the keys.

Remember–You as the Buyer have different goals than the Seller.  A realtor with experience and expertise will negotiate on you behalf. Selecting a Home is not just buying a House, you are investing in a community.

Selecting a home is not just buying a house, you are investing in a community.

Drive through the neighborhood several times at different times of the day and night.

COMMUNITY CHECKLIST

  • Would you be comfortable living there?
  • Learn about the school system (even if it is for the future)
  • Community organizations and social interaction
  • Shopping centers (What is available? How do they looks?)
  • Transportation (freeways, gated communities, buses, etc.)

CAN YOU REALLY AFFORD A FIXER-UPPER?

  1. Will you be able to do the work yourself? Professionals should be called in for electrical, plumbing, and structural work.
  2. Consider the time to complete the necessary remodeling.
  3. Obtain a qualified estimate of the cost:
    • Material Costs
    • Contractors Cost
    • Building permits required by the city

TIPS FOR BUYING A FIXER-UPPER

Never purchase a home that needs repair until the extent of that repair has been determined.

Hire a professional to inspect the HOUSE.

This economy has many sellers closer to or being “underwater.” Simply stated this means that they are selling the property for less than what they owe.
