PREPARE Get pre-qualified. Partner with a reputable, local, experienced lender and get a loan pre-qualification that is current and indicates credit and income were verified. This matters! Sellers will reject any offer without pre-qualification. Ask Nagel Properties for a list of great lenders.
CREATE WISH LIST Create a list of needs and wants for your future home. Share your wish list with your realtor. As you tour homes, your wish list may change - continue to communicate any changes with your realtor.
EXPECT TO COMPETE If it's a great house and good value, you may be competing against other buyers. Do your homework and learn the market. Be ready to act quickly when the right home comes along. Fast decisions are easier if you feel confident in your knowledge of the market, contract terms, and pricing.
LOVE A HOME? BUY IT! Don’t waste time in a hot market.
KEEP IT SIMPLE Less contingencies the better! Don’t pass the risk of selling your home, lengthy inspection or appraisal periods, or other contingencies on to the seller. Your agent can find ways to minimize the risk for both partIes and still protect your interest.
