Frank Grasso is your Mount Dora, Eustis, Tavares, Sorrento and Leesburg Real Estate Expert

Buying a home in Mount Dora, Eustis, Tavares or surrounding areas is an important decision that can make an enormous difference in your lifestyle. It is also the biggest financial decision most people make in their lifetime . There are some specific points to consider when purchasing a home.

Be realistic: There are no perfect homes. Although there are many homes on the market in Mount Dora, Tavares, Eustis and surrounding areas you will need to decide what is important to you, and make sure you find a home that has the features you require. Be prepared to compromise on some of the items on your wish list. 

Decide on a price: If you are financing get pre-qualified for a loan not just preapproved. Consider not only the amount of the loan the lender will allow, but also what you feel comfortable spending every month. Take an honest look at your budget.  

Choose carefully: Buying a home is much more permanent than renting. Purchase a home that you are prepared to keep for a while. Select a home that will be reasonable to maintain, in both utilities and/or repairs.  

• Most people nowadays buy more than one home in their lifetime. The average turnaround time is seven years. Buy a home you can afford today and that will hold great value over time. If this is the last home you plan on purchasing make sure the home will meet your needs as you age so that you can stay in place for as long as you want. 

I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have about making an offer, negotiating, or the buying process. I will work diligently to help you find and purchase your new home. Call 407-754-8382,  email or text me when you are ready to take the next step.
