So, you have made up your mind; ready to take the plunge and buy that Sedona home you have always dreamt of. Where do we start?
Well, the first step is to determine what type and size of home you are looking for and what part of Sedona you are looking to live in.
Do you have kids? Do you want to live by a school? How many rooms will you need? Do you want a swimming pool? A fenced in backyard? What kind of view do you want? Form a picture of the kind of home you want and fill in all the little details you are looking for.
Once you have in place, then you do a little Internet perusal of Sedona itself. Check out it’s history, geography, a bit about its culture, even it’s nightlife. Read the local news in Sedona by Googling Sedona news” See what the locals are talking about and what are their concerns.
Does it work for you? Do you really want to live there?
If you do, then you go on the Internet, check out a few Sedona real estate websites and look at photos of the various homes for sale in Sedona and take a virtual tour of them. You can get an idea of the price range and choose what you think best works for you.
Don’t bite off more than you can chew because the call of Sedona is so strong.
Once you have it, the budget and your expectations in the proper place, then go find your real estate agent.
The best bet is to find a local Realtor with roots in Sedona. They know the city and countryside better than any outsider and they take pride in helping you become part of the Sedona family of homeowners.
You are going to see a lot of homes you just “have to have” and the best way to stay on even keel is to be totally honest with yourself and with your agent as to what you can afford.
Remember, you don’t have to make decisions out of fear that you might miss out on a great deal. There are enough Sedona homes for sale to go around. The real estate market is cyclical. It can go up and down. Still, Sedona homes for sale are going fast, even with COVID because everyone wants to live here. They are drawn by the beauty and natural healing energy of Sedona.
When the right balance is found between the home you want and the home you can afford, you and your agent will sit down to talk about money, discussing closing costs, repairs, conditions, loan qualification, all of that. And if things look good and a deal is made, it’s time to write the offer.
Basically, it’s all about finding a balance between what you want and what you can afford. Go in with a clear picture of what will work, and you will find the sweet spot and the home that has been waiting all this time for you.
