Episode Info: Today we’re going over home buying tips so you can snag a great deal on your dream house!  What You Need to Know About Buying a House This summer is wrapping up, but things are about to get busier for us.  My mom was recently offered a job in the area and so she’s asked me to help her with buying a house.  The problem is that here in the Raleigh/Triangle area, it’s very much a seller’s market.  Since we bought our house three years ago, prices have gone up on homes. The median price of homes currently listed in Raleigh is $330,000. Which means we need to be savvy house hunters.  I’m excited about this, but it’s going to be a challenge for sure.  And if you’re looking to buy a house, you might be facing the same challenges.  Which is why I’m so happy to have Louis Guillama on today to offer his expertise.  He’s the Vice President of Real Estate Operations over at Coastal Credit Union. He has decades of experience with the real estate agent side as well as home renovations.  In this episode we’ll discuss:  differences between buying new construction vs resalespotting great and still affordable neighborhoodsfinding a fixer-upper (instead of being stuck with a money pit) Hope you enjoy!
