Buying

Below are some preparations you can make prior to contacting us. You can also contact us at any time and we can guide you through the entire process as well.

Buying a Home Tips

  • Get a copy of your credit report and correct any errors.
  • Reduce your consumer debt - pay down credit card balances.
  • Assemble a cash down payment.
  • Determine how much you can afford to pay for a home.
  • Decide how much you are willing to spend for a home (different from how much you can afford).
  • Get familiar with basic mortgage terms.
  • Shop for a mortgage loan on the Internet.
  • Get pre-approved or at least pre-qualified for a mortgage loan.
  • Ask us for help in evaluating the asking price of homes you like.
  • Contact us for more help and personal recommendations.

It’s absolutely essential to get a survey done on your property so you know exactly what you’re buying. Knowing precisely where your property lines are may save you from a potential dispute with your neighbors.

Always use the services of a certified Home Inspector before you close on the home you wish to purchase. A home inspector’s sole responsibility is to provide you with information so that you can make a decision as to whether or not to buy. It’s really a good way to get an unbiased third-party opinion.

Don’t obsess with trying to time the market and figure out when is the best time to buy. Trying to anticipate the housing market is impossible. The best time to buy is when you find your perfect house and you can afford it.
