Why Picking A Pumpkin is Like Picking A Home

For many people, few things can be scarier than buying a home. But it doesn’t have to be!

In anticipation of Halloween, I’ve learned that buying a home is a lot like picking a pumpkin!
If you know the right tricks, your home search will be a treat.

Oh, and once you’re done reading, I have a special treat below for you! 

If you don’t move fast, you’ll lose out. 

Bringing home a sad, mangled pumpkin resembling Freddy Krueger’s face is no treat. If you’re

late to the pumpkin patch party, you’ll have squashed your chances of finding the perfect Jack-O-Lantern. 

For homebuyers, moving quickly and decisively is a must. With the help of a savvy, smart realtor, buyers will have a plan in place before beginning their search.

Remember, the early trick-or-treater gets the gummy worm. 

You’ll get stuck in the muck.  

Didn’t wear boots to the pumpkin patch? 

Without proper footwear, you can forget getting the pumpkin you really want, or end up paying a lot afterwards for one the farmer’s picked out, even though your sneakers are caked in crud. 

Pumpkin hunting’s dirty, and even if you’re careful, it’s not uncommon to get muddy. 

Realtors work hard to avoid deals getting bogged down in the muck of paperwork or legal issues. But no deal is ever hassle-free, and you’ll need to be mentally and financially ready to tackle unexpected scenarios. 

That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced realtor early, preparing to shield you from problems and unforeseen consequences. 

Without planning, you may find yourself in a prolonged deal, costing you thousands in potential fees or taxes. 

You’ll always want a second opinion.

Whether it’s asking your children if the pumpkin’s a little lumpy, or your friends if the design is a spooky enough, you’ll be wanting a second opinion on your Jack-O-Lantern before it hits the porch. 

When searching realtors and evaluating their processes, it’s good to get a second opinion from an experienced realtor, who’ll tell you if something is looking “a little lumpy” too. 

If you’re searching for a haunted house of your own, be sure to check one out at this year’s Kits House Autumn Fair! Admission is free for all entertainment!
