What to Consider When Buying a New Home In Your 50’s


Posted on: 10 April 2019 by David Sessford

Thinking of buying a new house or your first house at the age of 50 or above? Read this guide to look at your options.

Buying a new house is not an easy process especially if you are at the later stages in life. You need to make a lot of decisions that you won’t regret in the future. Here are some of the most important things that you should consider when buying a new home. 

Reason for buying a new property

You have to consider your reason for buying a new house. Maybe your family is growing or you are looking for an investment for your retirement. Maybe you just want to live in a more comfortable space. Aside from your reason, you also need to consider your financial state. Do you have an extra source of income? Is your current job enough to pay for your mortgage dues every month? When do you plan on retiring?

Look for properties online or hire a real estate agent

It’s not easy to find a house that suits your needs, but you can start the process by looking for properties in your area. The house that fits your needs could be in the next community or just a few blocks from your current location. You can also use the internet to look for properties. If you don’t have enough time to do this, you can hire a local real estate agent to do the job for you.

Conduct your research

You have to look for information about the property and its location. Is it an old house or a new one? You also need to know its proximity to schools, hospitals, malls and other important establishments. Know what public transports are available in the area. You have to make sure that the neighborhood is safe. Know the police visibility and current crime index in the neighborhood. 

Narrow down your options

Trim down your options to make the selection process easier for you. Know which properties fit your budget and are convenient for you and your whole family. If you’re having second thoughts about a property, you should conduct more research about that house. You can ask your neighbors to get more information about that property. Consider other factors such as cost of living, current expenses and initial costs and ask your family’s opinion.

Negotiate the price

Sellers want to get a good profit, but you can negotiate the price to make it a win-win situation for both parties. Make sure that you can still afford the price. A good real estate agent can help you negotiate the price with the seller, you can even try and negotiate the agency fees where possible. You need someone to assist a house buyer like you.

Look for financing institutions

If you don’t have enough funds to cover the cost of the property, you can consider getting the support of various financing institutions. A new house is not a cheap investment and your savings might not be enough. You need to consider other expenses such as food, education, utility bills and medicine. Look for house financing options that will help you with the down payment and monthly dues. You can apply for housing loans. Ask your bank if you’re qualified for one.

Once you’ve agreed on the price, you now need to complete the necessary paperwork. A local real estate agent can do it for you.
