It is a great time to buy a home! Interest Rates are still Low and there are great homes available!
Here are some important things to keep in mind when thinking about purchasing a home. Start the home buying process with confidence!
The first step you need to take before starting your home search is to talk to a Lender or a mortgage broker that can answer important questions about the different loan and down payment options available to you. Your Realtor is a great source to recommend a great, reliable lender! Once you get a pre-approval you will know how much you are qualified to purchase and you can begin your home search with confidence!
Now that you have been pre-approved for a loan and you know the price range you want to start your home search in, you can move to the second step in the home buying process. You will need to decide the criteria that is important to you in a home. What are the must have items in your new home? How many bedrooms, baths, what is the yard like, type of community ,i.e. swim/tennis communities, does it have an HOA? Is a particular school district a must have to you? Or is it location or commute to and from work, access to shopping, parks, gym, highways, and other things that are important to you and your lifestyle.
This is why it is important to seek professional representation when starting the home buying process. It is crucial that you are communicating your Must Have’s with your Realtor so they can be diligently searching on your behalf for homes that best will meet your needs! Your Realtor will be able to assist you throughout the entire process and take you from finding a home to making an offer, and then from contract to close. Their knowledge and expertise of the current Market will help you make an informed decision and enable you to make an offer with confidence.
