5 Tips for Buying a Home

Interested in buying a home? Here are some essential tips for making the process as smooth as possible.

Get your finances in order.

Start by getting a full picture of your credit. Find a suitable lender and get pre-approved for a loan. This will put you in a better position to make a serious offer when you do find the right house. Call us – we can help you find a qualified loan professional.

Find a house you can afford.

As with engagement rings, there’s a general rule of thumb when it comes to buying a home: two-and-a-half times your annual salary.  Don’t forget that there are also lots of considerations beyond the sticker price, including property taxes, energy costs, etc. There’s allot think about, but you don’t have to do so alone. We have tools to help you simplify the process and find the home that’s right for you.

Hire Full-Time Real Estate Professionals.

While the Internet gives buyers unprecedented access to home listings and resources, many aspects of the buying process require a level of expertise you can’t pick up from surfing the web. Skill in negotiations, internet marketing and local area knowledge come from experience – you’re better off using a qualified real estate professional rather than going it alone. Leave the details to us and put our skills and experience to work for you!

We do our homework.

We research the state of the market at large, the sales trends of similar homes in the area, and constantly monitor what sells. We’ll come up with an asking price that’s competitive and realistic, and guide you throughout the process. Our goal is to insure your home buying process is smooth and hassle-free.
