Getting married can be one of the most exciting experiences of your life, and if your nuptials are coming up soon, then all of your focus is likely on that event. However, if you and your spouse-to-be are thinking about buying your first home together, then it can be beneficial to find a Realtor® now to get the process started. At Coldwell Banker Preferred in Bakersfield, we can show you a number of homes for sale that we know you’ll absolutely love!
A Starter Home
When you think of a starter home, you might think of a property that’s small and not in a prime location. While you may have to give up some square footage in order to come in at the budget you have, it doesn’t mean you have to settle for something that’s not up to your standards in terms of layout and location. Starter homes are often purchased with a combination of savings and a home loan, and our agents can help you find a property that meets your budget and fits your needs.
A House for a Blended Family
Perhaps you’re getting married later in life, and your soon-to-be spouse has children, as do you. This means you’ll need something a bit bigger in terms of a house, as you’ll want to be sure that everyone has the space they need as your families are combined. Our team understands the challenges that creating a blended family can bring, and we want to provide all the assistance we can in helping you find a property that’s big enough and that’s the right price. If you’re looking for homes near a specific school, or that’s closer to where you and your spouse work, then we can provide plenty of options that fit those criteria.
Buying a Home Together
Buying a home together as a newly married couple can be very exciting, and it can also be easier to do than trying to purchase a property on your own. Since you’ll be buying a house together, the mortgage company will look at both of your credit scores, as well as your debt. You can increase your buying power by bringing two people who earn a steady income to the table, and it could mean that you’re able to afford more house than if one of you tried to buy on your own.
