The home buying experience is definitely fun and exciting. But it can also be over- whelming if you are not prepared properly. First and foremost you want to have a preemptive discussion with a realtor well before you start your active search. This is going to properly get you prepared and educated for when you start actively looking at homes in person. First you will discuss financing. We will connect you with a lender where they can crunch the numbers to find out what you can afford, what your monthly payment will be and what type of loan is best for you. They will then give you a pre qual letter which states what you can afford. This is a pertinent step to the home buying process. No seller is going to accept an offer without a pre qual letter from your lender, and the last thing you want to be doing when submitting an offer on the home you love, it scrambling for documentation to to prove you are qualified.
Next step is going over all the important criteria you are looking for in your home search. Location, size, style, layout, updates and so on. This might get tweeked as you get further into your home search.
Once you have all those details ironed out you will have your realtor send you homes to view online. This will allow you to compile a list to make appointments to go view in person. When you find the right one, its time to put in an offer! This is the important part. You want your realtor to run the comparables to make sure you are not over paying for the home. When you decide on a fair price, you submit your offer for negotiation. Once accepted, you are under contract and on your way to home ownership. Typical contract periods last between 45 and 60 days but that can sometimes be negotiated as well. For more information check out link below https://bit.ly/0991realestatevideos
