When you’re buying a home, there’s a lot of excitement that surrounds the search and purchase of the property. In the process of buying a home, however, there are many things that buyers forget to take into account during their search and budgeting. Below, you’ll find some information to help you be prepared as a buyer to consider your home purchase from all angles without missing a beat.  


The Expense Of Closing Costs


Remember that closing costs will be somewhere in the 3-5 percent range of the purchase price of a home. Amidst all of your savings, you’ll need to consider this a part of your expenses. Closing costs need to be paid upfront in most cases. You can roll your closing costs into the financing, but it depends on the circumstances. There are no guarantees that the lender will agree to it. Your realtor can also sometimes negotiate for the sellers to pay the closing costs, but in a seller’s market this is quite rare. Be prepared with your closing costs and understand how much you’ll need to spend so that you have an appropriate amount for the downpayment and the other expenses that you’ll incur during the process of buying a home.  


The Cost Of Maintaining A House


Many buyers forget about all of the costs that they will need to pay for after they finish buying the house. In addition to a monthly mortgage payment, you’ll need to pay for things like utilities, routine home maintenance, furnishings, and more. If you completely deplete your savings for the purchase of the home, there’s not a whole lot of wiggle room for you to pay for additional needs in the house. 


The Cost Of Furnishing And Decorating A Home


You may move into a home with a few pieces that you have previously owned. You could also need a lot of things from a bed to a sofa. All of these items can add up. You may even have to worry about little things like window shades, curtains, lamps, light bulbs, and more. 


Home Repairs Can Cost A Pretty Penny


If something needs to be done in your home, the repairs can cost you quite a bit. If you’re not paying attention during the home inspection, you’ll be in for some surprises. That’s why you need a good realtor to help you through the process. A new roof can cost thousands of dollars. New appliances are an expense you should plan for. Other major work that needs to be done around the house can also dip into your savings significantly. As a buyer, you need to be prepared for any of these expected or completely unexpected costs.

Let's face it – if you plan to relocate, you may need to reserve a moving truck. However, many moving truck providers are available, and finding the right one may prove to be a long, arduous process.

Lucky for you, we're here to help you streamline the process of evaluating moving truck companies so that you can make the best possible decision.

Now, let's take a look at three questions to consider before you book a moving truck.

1. How much stuff do I need to move?

If you own a wide range of antiques, books, DVDs and other items, you may need a medium or large moving truck to transport all of your belongings from Point A to Point B. Comparatively, if you rent a studio apartment, you may only need a small moving truck to help you bring your items to your new house.

Take a look at all of your belongings and put together an inventory. Then, you'll be better equipped than ever before to select a moving truck company that provides a vehicle that matches your moving needs.

2. How far do I need to go?

Distance is an important factor to consider as you evaluate moving truck providers, as most of these companies will require you to pay for the fuel costs associated with a moving vehicle.

For example, if you need to move out of state, you may need to account for the cost of renting a moving truck, along with several hundred dollars in fuel charges. Or, if you are moving just down the road from your current address, the fuel costs associated with a moving truck probably will be minimal.

When it comes to determining which moving truck company to use, it pays to look at how these businesses account for fuel expenses. By doing so, you can budget accordingly.

3. How long will it take to complete my move?

In many instances, a moving truck provider will bill you based on how long you keep a vehicle. This means someone who needs a moving truck for just a few hours may pay significantly less than someone who requires a moving vehicle for several days.

Plan ahead for moving day as much as possible. That way, you can find ways to streamline the moving cycle and cut down on the amount of time that you will need a moving truck.

Lastly, if you need help finding the right moving truck company, you may want to consult with a real estate agent. This housing market professional is happy to provide recommendations about various moving truck companies in your area. Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent can take the guesswork out of buying or selling a house and ensure you can enjoy a seamless move.

Make an informed decision about a moving truck provider – use the aforementioned tips, and you can select a moving truck company that will meet or exceed your expectations.
