Lonnie Branson Real Estate Debunks the 5 most common myths when it comes to buying a home. If you’re nervous or not sure where to begin we will help guide you through all the tips and tricks to ensure the best experience!

1) Renting is cheaper than owning a home:

Renting may seem like the best option for maintenance-free living, but the place you’re in will never be your own. 

Investing in Real estate is a great way to build wealth, as long as you make smart financial choices. By the time you’re ready to move and sell your home, the market prices will generally increase over time. 

2) First step is looking for a house:

When you first want to buy a house you immediately look at the inventory to see what is out there. Before you get your heart set on a home, you want to make sure you are ready financially. Most important and the first step is getting pre-approved for a loan. This will give you the guidelines on what you need to prepare for before purchasing. 

3) You don’t need a Realtor:

Having a realtor is the most valuable key in the transaction process. We have the negotiation skills and connections to bring you the most value to home-searching process.

4) Location, Location, Location:

Location may play a key role in your decision but it shouldn’t be the biggest factor when looking for a home.

Neighborhoods are on the rise, especially in Cass County. Looking for a home in a town that has development potential like Belton, Raymore and Peculiar, means the area will get better and better. Just imagine how neighborhoods will change 5 or 10 years later.

5) You should wait until the market is right:

The best time to buy is when it’s right for you. The timing of the real estate market can be tricky to predict. It’s better to invest when you’re completely ready to move into a home.
