Hoping to find a home? Don’t get discouraged!

It is very important to get your ducks in a row. First talk to a lender that you know and trust. Find out what your budget is and how much you can afford each payment. Get preapproved for before you make an offer to make sure you have the money. Make sure you focus on homes you can afford. You can have a consultation with your realtor about what specific things you are looking for in a home. It is not just 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. We want to know yard size, fenced in, basement, how much work are you willing to put in? Compromising before you look for houses can save hours, days while you are looking for a house. Talking to a realtor can bring up questions and conversations you wouldn’t even think about.

The conversation helps the realtor when he sees a home hit the market by having him ask the question, “Do I have someone who this house is going to fit with?” By working with a real-estate, you can get a head start at looking at what could be your dream home. The internet is about a 8-12 hour window where your real-estate agent could have already gotten in contact with you and set you up to look at the house. Each website isn’t guaranteed to have all houses on the market. Timing is everything.

Your realtor can also help you find the little things that you wouldn’t necessarily think about. For example, flush the toilet, is that crack just a simple crack or is there a bigger issue here. Your real-estate agent can help prepare you for the inspection and give you a heads about little things so you aren’t shocked when the inspection comes back.
