3 Things to Do Before You Buy a New Home This Year

If you’ve been looking for new homes in Eagle ID, you probably know that the market is still hot. Inventory remains low, creating a lot of competition among home buyers. Homes don’t stay on the market for long, and when they do sell, they often go for more than the asking price.

You have to step up your game if you want to buy a new home this year. Here are 3 ways to do that:

  1. First and foremost, be prepared to act quickly. Know what you want in a home and where you want to live. Get pre-approved for a mortgage. When you see a home you’re interested in, make an appointment to tour it right away. Be ready to jump in with an offer when you find a home you want to buy.
  2. Start now to do everything you can to raise your credit score. Pay all your bills promptly and minimize your debts. The higher your score, the lower your interest rate can be.
  3. Aim for the largest down payment you can make. The standard is 20%, and that amount lets you avoid paying PMI, or private mortgage insurance. A larger down payment also means that you can apply for a smaller loan.

Use these tips to help you land a new home in our Homestead community in Eagle ID. We have available homes under construction now for closing in April, May, and June 2022. Our Homestead homes start in the low $900s and feature the quality construction, up-to-date design, and high energy efficiency you expect from a Brighton home.

You can also choose from our wide variety of lot sizes and floor plans to put together the home of your dreams. The community features one and two-story homes with 3 to 5 bedrooms and 2, 3, or 4-car garages.

Homestead is a relaxing neighborhood that’s close enough to Boise to enjoy the city amenities. When you want to enjoy time in more natural surroundings, Eagle Island State Park and Boise River are nearby. Homestead truly gives you the best of both worlds!
