Understanding the home buying process is the key to making it a smooth experience and will very likely reduce the stress levels considerably. Here are some simple steps we can help you with the during your home buying process.
Get pre-approved for a Loan
All offers submitted to a Seller require proof of financial ability to purchase the home… if you’re not paying cash, we can help you get in touch with a great mortgage loan officer who can help you take the first step towards buying your next home.
Figure out where you’d like to live
By now you should have a good idea of how much home you can afford. This helps you narrow down your home search. You should also begin researching the neighborhoods in which you might want to live.
Decide which amenities and features you must have – and which ones would be nice but not necessary
How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want? Would you prefer a newer home or an older one with a large lot? Are tile or hardwood floors a must? Is an updated kitchen important to you? Walk-in closets? Pool? Which features would you be willing to give up if you find the otherwise-perfect home?
Different communities and subdivisions offer various amenities also, such as golf, tennis, clubhouses, gated entrances, community pool, professionally managed, etc. These are things to keep in mind when looking for the right home also.
