There are pros and cons to buying a home in any season, and springtime is no different! If you plan on buying a home this spring, make sure you are prepared for the home buying process before you ever view your first property. When you are ready to begin the home search process, give our team of talented Buyers Specialists a call.
Before you purchase a home this spring, consider the following tips:
Plan Your Needs and Wants: No matter what time of year you are buying a home, it is important to know what you are looking for. Set aside time to write down what you need in a property, and what you want (but are willing to go without). It is important to stay focused when touring multiple properties, and having a list ensures you have something to refer back to. When you work with our team, we will have a comprehensive buyer consult before touring properties so we can always ensure you are always seeing homes that meet your personal desires.
Be Prepared: Check your credit, get pre approved for a loan, and prepare your finances early on. This will help you not only find properties in your budget, but also make sure you are ready to make an offer as soon as you find the right one. By working with our preferred lender, Flagstar, we can ensure we remain on the same page with them throughout your home buying process. This will ease the stress on yourself as well!
Know When To Be Flexible: Foreclosures and short sales may not be your first thought when searching for a new home, but try not to get caught up on the type of seller when looking for properties. Instead, stay focused on things that should be a priority (like location). This will make sure you keep your options open, while also guaranteeing you don’t compromise on more important items.
Ask about our Buying Power Guarantee: When working with an experienced team like ours, we have 17 different items we can suggest when preparing an offer against other buyers. These terms could allow your offer to stand out stronger against the rest!
Showing Agent Advantage: Work with a team that can ensure as soon as your dream home hits the market, you can see it! With our 24 Hour Showing Guarantee we can promise you will never miss an opportunity to see a property that meets your needs.
