Are you buying a house in the Hamptons using your own funds (cash) or are you applying for a mortgage?
Knowing how much you can afford is important because sellers will want to confirm that you have the wherewithal to purchase their property. If you are applying for a mortgage, I suggest doing this now. Having your pre-approval letter readily available will ensure there is no delay in making an offer on a property. When the right deal presents itself, you do not want anything to prohibit you from securing your desired home.
Identify what you want and need in a home. What is important to you when buying a house in the Hamptons?
Make a list of your wants and needs and identify what items are non-negotiable. Do you need a pool or are you willing to install your own? Do you need oceanfront property or do you prefer a location close to town? Do you need new construction or are you looking for a project? It’s important to understand that we have been conditioned to buy with emotion and confirm our decision using logic. Breaking your wants and needs down into a list will help when looking at homes for sale in the Hamptons.
