San Jose Ca Homes For Sale – Call: 831-801-3149


For most people, there are very few financial transactions in life as significant as the purchase of their home.  While shopping for San Jose Ca homes for sale, it is important to remain objective when the temptation to become emotional is running high.  There are countless articles on-line as well as books, brochures, and periodicals that offer great advice on purchasing a home, but when a buyer(s) is in an emotional state, sound reasoning  tends to be thrown out the window, and often irreversible (not to mention regrettable)  decisions are made. Regardless of where a person is contemplating the purchase of a home, they should make sure they are choosing the right home for their situation.

Choosing “what you need” vs. “what you want,” is a fundamental “must.”  The goal, of course is to try to bring those two criteria as close together as possible in the same house. That is where a professional realtor can be of great assistance. There are so many San Jose CA homes for sale that narrowing the search sometimes warrants the help of someone who searches for “the right home” for a living.  Realtors shouldn’t be feared.  They are truly there to help, and often become life-long friends of their clients.  So, use them to help you think clearly through this process.

Some of the primary concerns of what is “needed” in a home should include the re-sale value, neighborhood, commute, quality of schools, parks & nearby recreation, traffic and industrial noises, and of course affordability.
Most people don’t stop to realize that the home they are contemplating the purchase of, will likely be the same home that one day they will contemplate the selling of.  Yes, it’s true that most people don’t stay in their home for more than ten years.  So, it is worth taking the time to consider factors that will affect the re-sale value of the house.  Sometimes there are inherent disclosures that hinder the sell of a property.  An example might be things that are out of the homeowner’s control (airport nearby, agriculture related dust, etc.) but must be fully disclosed when trying to sell.

The neighborhood in which a home is located is a primary concern as well. Are the nearby homes well kept, free of loitering and excessive numbers of parked vehicles?  Driving by the neighborhood several times while the house is in escrow (or preferably before making an offer) at different times of day/night will give a candid insight to what the neighborhood is really like. Driving to work each day is burdensome enough without adding to the commute unnecessarily.  If all else is equal when choosing between homes, don’t forget to consider the effect that the location will have on your commute time.  When shopping for San Jose Ca homes it is not unreasonable to actually drive the different routes to be sure your up to the challenge.

Finally, if you have children it is of paramount importance to review the school district that they will attend.  There is ample information online regarding test scores, activities, elective courses, etc.  Fortunately, San Jose homes for sale are often right in the middle of the best schools in the country.

These are just a few of the many considerations that should be established long before making an offer on a house.  The actual offer process can be the beginning of the emotional state, and is not the time to be “wondering” if the house meets your needs.  Hopefully it has already been determined that it meets your needs, and now you have settled on the home you want. So, peruse the San Jose Ca homes for sale, and make an informed, and well considered offer.
