How to Become a SERIOUS BUYER

Most would-be home buyers spend a lot of time on line looking at potential homes to buy, but not all of them put themselves in the position to be taken seriously by sellers and lenders. 

How do you become a SERIOUS BUYER . . . one who sellers and mortgage brokers want to do a transaction with?

Here are a few tips to make sure you are in the best possible position to get the property and mortgage that you deserve.

• Nail down your due diligence. Make sure your credit score is in good shape. Assess your needs while determining what you can afford.

• Be realistic about your time frame and give yourself plenty of time to deal with a tight market. From beginning to end, the process could possibly take between 3 and 6 months.

• Find an expert local REALTOR® to represent you early in the process.  Their experience and knowledge will be invaluable to you and save you time and money.

• Get pre-approved for a mortgage and be ready to make an offer when the right property hits the market.

He who is prepared wins . . . and that really is true most of the time.
