Quick Tips When Buying A Home
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO FIRST AND FOREMOST IS TO HIRE AN AGENT.
They will be looking out for your best interest and will help guide you through the process.
Here is Why:
Hiring an agent will save you time.
An agent can send you listings directly from MLS that fit your parameters.
Agents often know of new listings before they hit the market.
Agents can also preview homes for you if you live in another area.
An agent knows the market and understands the current trends. They can help spot over priced listings and can advise you accordingly.
The Lakes Region is a unique Real Estate market. Every town is very different. A knowledgeable agent will explain each town and what it has to offer.
GET A PRE APPROVAL FROM A BANK OR MORTGAGE COMPANY
This way you know for certain what you qualify for. Many sellers won’t look at an offer if the seller does not have an assurance that the buyer can get a loan.
Ask your agent for a referral to a local Bank or Mortgage Company.
