Now is an exciting time to buy a home because interest rates are wonderful. However, there are things to keep in mind because inventory is low. 

At 0:34 in the video above, you can see a diagram of a triangle that illustrates how you need to choose two of the following to prioritize: location, condition, and price. Consider which two of these are most crucial to you. For example, if it’s in the right location and the right price, are you willing to upgrade its condition? Of course, the well-known adage is ‘location, location, location’ but because of the rising prices, there are many areas in Augusta that are great locations to consider. 

If you have any specific questions about locations, schools, or pricing, call me at (706) 481-3800 or email me, and I’ll be delighted to help you!
