Common Homebuyer Mistakes in Brunswick, Hinckley, Medina, Strongsville OH

Your home is likely the biggest purchase you’ll make in your lifetime— it’s to be expected that you’ll have many questions along the way. One great way to ensure you’re making the right decisions in your Medina and Cuyahoga County home purchase is to learn from common homebuyer mistakes. These common blunders are especially helpful if you’re a first-time buyer in Ohio, but also for seasoned buyers looking to move.

You should always run your questions and concerns through your experienced Ohio real estate agent, but reading through other common buyer mistakes should also help steer you in the right direction:

Consider the size and layout
When you buy a home in Medina, Brunswick, Hinckley, Strongsville or Valley City, it’s important to consider both the size and layout. One homebuyer mistake is not considering the size of the home— many wish they had bigger kitchens, more storage space, more bedrooms. Many also wish they had considered the layout of the home, so be sure to keep in mind what will work best for you and your family. If you plan to live in this home for years to come, be sure the home can accommodate your needs and plan accordingly.

Consider the cost
Many homebuyers wish they had put more money down when buying a home, while others wish they had purchased a home with a lower price. According to a new Zillow survey, 38 percent of new homeowners said they were surprised at how much it costs to maintain their home and 20 percent were surprised at the closing costs. Be sure to factor all of these into your budget when house hunting in Medina and Cuyahoga County.

Consider the location
Location is just as important as the home itself, so do your research ahead of time. In Zillow’s survey, more than 1/4 of homeowners admit they did not research their neighborhood well. Visit the neighborhood at all times of day, including in the evening and on the weekend. Notice what the neighbors are like during those times and factor that into your decision.
