Delaware First Time Home Buyer Mistakes – Timing Problems

John Thomas March 8, 2010

The following is a very common mistake that Delaware First Time Home Buyers make when searching for a home to buy:

Mistake #1 – Timing Problems – Any first time home buyer who is currently renting should try to time their purchase at the end of their lease so they don’t incur any penalties. If you haven’t bought yet and your lease is coming up, then sign a month to month lease.  This will allow you to get out of your lease as soon as you find the house you want to buy.

If you are trying to buy a house before your lease is up, then look to see if you can break the lease early. Some leases will let you out with a 60-day notice. Others will allow you to pay a penalty to get out early. Some leases won’t let you out no matter what the circumstance if this is a condition of your lease, offer landlord a buy out of the lease.
