    Top 5 Things to Know When BUYING a Home

    1. Location, Location, Location. Check the home’s proximity to employment, schools, places of worship, hospitals, loved ones, entertainment, beaches and parks, for example 

    2. Resale Value. Check the values of surrounding properties and make sure they are comparable. Also, find out how long homes in that location stay on the market before selling. Finally, know your zoning and what the property can legally accommodate.

    3. Taxes. Know what the taxes are and where they go, whether you’re buying a primary or secondary home. Different locations have different tax bases and related obligations. If you are obtaining a mortgage, the taxes are figured into what you can afford to pay monthly for the home. Therefore, the taxes directly affect your purchasing power.

    Testimonials

    This is the fourth time we have worked with the Evans Group in buying or selling a home. When we first moved to Chattanooga in 2008 without any contacts in the area, we somewhat blindly selected the Evans Group. I feel very fortunate to have found them, as they have been nothing but professional, kind and pleasant to work with. We’ve always had a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone without reservation.   Barry & Diane Evans | Evans & Friends
