Get Pre Approved – This will give you an estimate of your purchase price range and monthly mortgage payments. If you need a referral, we have a list of qualified lenders we can share with you.
Pay Attention to Interest Rates – Lower interest rate = lower monthly payments.
Save a down payment – 20% of the purchase price is recommended, but you may qualify for a loan with as little as 3.5% down.
Identify Yourself – Are you looking for a fixer-upper as an investment? A home where you can build some “sweat equity”? Do you desire a home that is move-in ready? We are ready to help you with this important decision.
Research – Prior to viewing homes, try to determine your needs. Understand that no home may be perfect, but put together a priority list of “must haves” for your new home. Whether you require a specific number of bathrooms or a large backyard, identify which features you cannot live without.
Viewing Properties – We will set an appointment in advance to view your preferred properties. Most of the time sellers will require sufficient notice for showings.
Wear Comfortable Shoes – You’ll be entering homes that may require your shoes to be removed. It’s best to wear something easy to slip on and off.
Keep an Open Mind – We have a list of professional, qualified service providers who can transform a home from “Ho-Hum” to your dream home. We have a list of painters, handymen, designers and many others to assist you.
