When buying a home in today's competitive market there are 3 very important rules to always remember.
Rule #1: Get a Pre-APPROVAL. This is a step beyond getting pre-qualified because you provide the lender more information which is verified. A pre-approval will make the loan process smoother and will strengthen your offer helping you to stand out to the seller.
Rule #2: Narrow your search to a specific AREA. Knowing where you want to live helps the agent to focus and aggressively research the area that is most desired by you. Also,this helps with previewing properties, canvassing the neighborhood, and setting up an email listing campaign for you.
Rule #3: Selecting the right AGENT. Having a full-time agent is extremely important in this fast-paced market. You also want an agent that is dedicated to your happiness and driven by exceeding your expectations, which will only help to make a great buying experience for you. Buying a home can be a stressful process, but having an agent that is seasoned and able to lead the way takes a huge burden from your shoulders.
