Where do you see yourself in five years?

Is a new home in your five-year plan? Who would know better how to get you there than our New Home Consultants? Here’s what they say you should be doing to prepare.

But first,

WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT HOME OWNERSHIP?

Owning a home is a great opportunity to turn your monthly rent check into a valuable investment. It’s a great way to plan for your financial future. Owning a home is, and has always been, one of the best financial investments you can make. If you have the opportunity to start early, we recommend it. Smaller homes are great foundations that can set you up for your eventual retirement.
 
So here’s how to begin.


LOOK AT YOUR FINANCES

The first step in your journey towards a new home is making sure your finances are in the right place. Start by checking your credit score. Trying to buy a home with poor credit will not only be difficult, but will affect your finances for years and years to come. Start strengthening your credit ASAP to make the whole process easier. It’s also a great idea to start saving for your down payment as soon as possible. The more you can save, the more options you’ll have when it comes time to buy. If you need a reminder of exactly what it is that you’re saving for, read our blog on understanding the cost of building a home.
 

FIND A GOOD LENDER

Finding a good lender is just as important as finding the right builder, especially if this is your first time buying. Even in the age of mobile and online banking, it’s often easier to work with a local lender. Local lenders often offer great programs tailored to your specific situation, and will be there to answer any questions you might have along the way. This is an important decision, though, so remember to shop around for the lender that’s right for you.
 

NARROW DOWN YOUR OPTIONS

By narrowing down your list early, you won’t start barking up the wrong tree. Do some research and decide what general area or specific neighborhood you’d like to move to. Next, decide what you’re looking for. A condo? A RediHome®? Do you want to build new? Think about size. Is this a starter home? Are you expanding? Are you right sizing? Answering these sort of questions up front will save you a lot of time and energy.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
