Are You Ready to Buy?
As with most things in life, the process of buying a home can be made much simpler and easier by knowing a few things upfront:
Sellers are looking for buyers that are ready to make their move, and one of the best ways to demonstrate your readiness is to get pre-qualified for the loan amount needed. There is no reason to wait, start mortgage shopping now and get familiarized with interest rates and mortgage terms.
Staying focused on the essentials is absolutely key when home shopping. Do you need three bedrooms and three bathrooms? How big should the garage be? After the necessities are listed, work on your wish-list or non-essential wants. And remember, many wish-list features can be added later via remodeling, especially if you can buy at the right price.
