Buying Real Estate, First Things First


Put Pen to Paper

 Make a specific list of what you are looking for in a home.  What are your priorities?  A big backyard for the kids?  A huge master bedroom? A modern kitchen?  Know what you want and go after it.  Also, decide where you are willing to compromise and where you aren’t. This will help in your decision-making.

Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage

Pre-approval lets the seller know you’re serious. If you’re pre-approved, you will be more likely to make a deal.  Make an appointment to today and meet with a Mortgage Loan Officer as soon as possible.

Don’t Make Low Ball Offers

Sellers get turned off when buyers make very low offers.  Make fair offers.  Work with your licensed salesperson to come up with a strategy for the negotiations.

Look Past the Décor

It’s easy to get turned off by a home that is poorly decorated or dirty.  Use your imagination to picture a clean and well decorated house – it could be your dream home.
