Top 5 Buyer Tips COURTESY OF THE CHRIS MESSECAR TEAM
1. GET PRE-APPROVED
Get pre-approved for a mortgage before you start your search for a home. This will allow you to know what you will be able to afford and will help speed up the buying process once you do find the home that would like to purchase. For more information on Financing click here.
2. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO LIVE?
Narrow down the Location of where you would like to live, so you can concentrate on listings in that area. Take into consideration the type of home you want to live in, the type of neighborhood, size of yard.
3. USE A PROFESIONNAL REALTOR®
Ensure you have the right professional REALTOR® working for you to help you find properties that meet your search criteria.
4. HOME INSPECTION
For most people purchasing a home is the largest investment you will make. Ensure you are making a sound investment by hiring a qualified Home Inspector. A home inspector’s sole responsibility is to provide you with information about the ins and outs of the home so that you can make a decision as to whether or not to buy. If the inspector does find any issues with the home, you can use it as a bargaining tool for lowering the price of the home. By hiring a qualified Home Inspector you could end up saving yourself thousands of dollars; It’s better to spend the money up front on an inspector than to find out later you have to spend a fortune.
