Winter 2022 Home Buyer Guide

Home Buying tips and advice

We still have a little over 2 weeks until the 1st day of Winter. However, if you are considering buying a home, my Winter 2022 Home Buyer Guide is ready. You can download it for FREE.

If you are planning to sell, why not check out my 2022 Winter Home Seller Guide!

It’s important to be educated about the home search and buying process, especially in our very competitive sellers’ market. That’s true as a home buyer in Carlsbad, or elsewhere in our North San Diego County communities.

Even if you are an experienced home buyer you will find there are new things to learn, especially if you have not bought a home for a while! The real estate business, and the housing market conditions, keep shifting. You should get as prepared as possible, in order to navigate the home buying process successfully and achieve your goals.

Home Buyer Guide

While the 2022 WINTER HOME BUYER GUIDE does not cover everything you should know, it will help you understand the following, and more. And perhaps will raise some questions we should discuss:

1. Reasons to Buy a Home This Winter

2. Key Terms to Know when Buying a Home – real estate has plenty of its own vocabulary. There are some important terms to understand in the buying and mortgage approval process.

3. The Non-Financial Benefits of Homeownership

4. Is Offering Asking Price Enough?

5. Things to Avoid After Applying for a Mortgage

6. What does the Future Hold for Home Prices?

If we work together I will explain everything you need to know, and answer all of your questions. There might even be some questions you did not realize you had!


HOME BUYING TIPS AND ADVICE is a playlist of 23 short (1 to 2 1/2 minutes) videos on my YouTube Channel. This playlist covers some important things to know when buying a house. The videos do not cover everything to be aware of. But you’ll learn more about what to expect and some answers to important questions.

If you are also planning to sell, my videos on HOME SELLING TIPS AND ADVICE will help you get prepared. If you would like more information about the local real estate market conditions, the home purchase process, life in Carlsbad and North San Diego County, getting pre-approved (unless you are paying cash), and related matters, please get in touch with me by calling or texting (760) 840-1360.

Do you need to get pre-approved for a loan? It’s essential in order to tour homes (some listings require a pre-approval letter before a showing) and make offers. And it’s certainly wise to do so you know your true buying power in this market. I can provide several recommendations of lenders you can speak with. Just give me a call or text me at (760) 840-1360 and let’s discuss what you need!
