As you start looking seriously at Real Estate it helps to first prioritize the features that are most important to you.
One of the best methods is to make a list of what you would really like to find in your new property...
- Lot or Acreage
- Topography & Road
- Water, Utilities, Zoning
- Accessibility to town
- Access to Clear Lake
- and of course Price!
Affordability Calculator will help you see what costs you need to consider and then determine the real estate price range you can best afford.
Clear Lake, California's largest natural freshwater lake and the heart of Lake County California, is located just 2 1/2 hours North of San Francisco and 2 hours Northwest of Sacramento.
The next step in finding a property is financing.
Mortgages come in three basic groups:
- Fixed (30 year or 15 year)
- Adjustable (adjusting monthly or yearly)
- Fixed for a specific time and then becoming adjustable (3 to 5 year fixed and then adjusting is common)
What may be perfect for you may not work at all for your neighbor.
