Where to begin when buying a home?

Home buying

Home buying

One of the most crucial first steps to buying a home is getting pre-qualified for a mortgage loan. The lender will determine how much the bank can loan to you for your new home. Most leaders are requiring a minimum of a 640 credit score, low debt to income ratio, your standings with other creditors and steady employment.  We have lenders that we work closely with to ensure  your home buying process goes smoothly. Let us refer you to a lender today to get you moving in the right direction of homeownership!

Once you have your loan pre-qualification complete you’ll want to invest some time in finding a reliable Real estate agent to assist you. Why do you need an agent? An agent will consult with you to help you determine what you needs and wants are in a home. They can usually work for you through he entire process at no charge, ask us how! Then they can narrow down homes that best fit your criteria and give you facts and information about each one. Once you’ve selected homes to view they can schedule and organize showings for you. Agents can be a wonderful resource for you when it comes to inspections, title companies, contractors, home warranty companies and much more. Once you have found the perfect home for you your agent will be able to write an offer and help negotiate the terms with the seller or seller’s agent to get you the best possible deal. Their job doesn’t stop there! Once your offer has been accepted by the seller your agent will begin the closing process and follow it through to the end to ensure that everything is in order with your loan and title company so you close on your home without delays.
