𝟰 Things To Do Prior To Starting Your Narragansett Home Search.
- Hey there, friend! Kaitlyn here 👋🏼
It’s my absolute hope that this little graphic (𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘳!) might shed some light 💡 on a few of your first-time home buying questions.
Before jumping to Zillow and Redfin or calling the first agent you see to go look at homes, there are a few things I’d kindly love to encourage you to think about prior☺️. This will potentially save you time, money, and potentially heartbreak, and after all- we want this to be a less-stress and fun process! You are moving to your 𝙝𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙮 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙚 after all!
Whether you’re looking now (I and the @sheilrealty @randallrealtors ) would be so delighted to support you!) or if you’re looking months or years from now, there’s no pressure and this is designed to help lay out the steps for what’s ahead! 𝘏𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘰 𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴-𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴 ✨

Sit down with yourself and whomever is involved with your home search process and truly think about what kind of lifestyle would you like to create for yourself? Fo you want to wake up and drink your coffee waterfront? Smell the ocean through your kitchen window? Be a pitching wedge distance (for my golfers out there) from the nearest golf club? A quick beach-cruiser-bike ride to the beach or downtown? Will this property be an investment property for student rentals or vacation rentals? Depending on your answers (and you don’t have to know WHICH area, that I can help you with!) that will determine which area you will get the most bang for your buck and create the happy-place lifestyle you so truly deserve ✨🌊

Depending on budget, there are a few things to consider that could help you save BIG time! Are you handy? Willing to put in some sweat equity? Do you have contractors in the family?
🌊 𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗣 𝟯- 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝘂𝗱𝗴𝗲𝘁?
If you’re looking to stay under a certain budget, kindly research and run your numbers. What you’re approved for and what you feel comfortable spending could be two different things ☺️ This will help you so much with your search!

Now that you’ve done your research, ran your numbers, let’s get you pre-approved! In such a low inventory market right now, this is such a great thing to have ready to go if you’ve found your potential happy place! If you’re new to Narragansett or unsure of who to use in the area, I would be so delighted to recommend a number of mortgage loan officers to reach out to!
If you are looking to start your Narragansett home search with an incredible team around you who truly cares and excited for you to choose the home that feels perfect for you, it would be an absolute pleasure to help you! I am always a email/call/text away!
