Top 3 Homebuyer Tips

 

Hey Ladies and Gents!

Thanks for checking out our blog and here is Matt's Top 3 Tips for Homebuyers. 

1. Talk with a lender first- Dont go out and start looking at a bunch of homes first. You want to sit down with a lender and figure out exactly what you qualify for. Find out what payment range you should be looking in and then begin to narrow your home search down from there. Nothing worse than falling in love with a home just to realize you cant afford it. This way you can go out shopping with confidence. It will make your offers alot more attractive as well. 

2. Make a list of wants and needs- If you have a good agent they should be walking you through this and helping you create this list. No home will be 100% perfect (unless you have an unlimited budget and build it from scratch). Have your list of must haves and wants. Be flexible with the wants and firm with the must haves. Sharing this list with your agent will help them guide you into the perfect home. We look at 100's of homes every month so we can help you sort your list out. 

3. Be honest with your agent- We want to help you find the perfect home, so being 100% honest with us from the start makes it much easier for us to help you. If you dont think your agent is showing you properties that meet your list, let them know. The more you tell us the better we can serve you.
