Why Use a Realtor When Looking To Buy Lake Gaston Property?...

Lake Gaston is considered a resort location and a great place for retirement. Buyers may not be familiar with the area or don’t understand the geographic layout of the land surrounding the lake. That being said, it is important to use a professional and reliable real estate agent who is familiar with the local area as well as understanding the Lake Gaston market. The 350 miles of Lake Gaston shorelines span across two state boundaries – NC & VA - and five county boundaries; all of which have different legalities and tax implications. The market also varies broadly based on type of property – waterfront, water view, water access, off-shore property, farmland, and commercial properties. Then of course there are subdivisions with HOAs and some without. These are just a few reasons why you should use a realtor when investing in Lake Gaston real estate.

Buyer tips to consider...
  • Evaluate Your Budget...
    You need to know how much you can afford prior to searching for your ideal property. Do your homework by researching in advance typical down payment requirements, current interest rates, utilities, real estate taxes, etc. Use a mortgage calculator to estimate what your monthly payment will be. That way there are no surprises.
  • Check Your Credit Score...
    Credit scores are important factors when it comes to qualifying for a loan.
  • Research Your Mortgage Options...
    Know the difference between the various types of mortgages in advance to determine which type is best for you.
  • Seek Pre-Approval...
    Once you know your budget, contact a financial company to get pre-approved for a mortgage. This will help speed up contract negotiations.
  • Make A List Of What Is Important To You...
    Make a list of amenities that are 'must have' to help narrow your search to properties that include those amenities. Things such as number of bedrooms and bathrooms, house style, neighborhood, basement, garage, etc. Narrowing your requirements will make finding the perfect property much easier and will save time in the long run.
