Preparing to Make a Real Estate Purchase by Arlette L.M. Jeet-Falone MBA
Purchasing real estate need not be daunting. In fact it can actually be an enjoyable experience if you let it. Change your mindset to one that allows you to see the possibilities. Once you are within the right network for you, you will see doors open up and you will be able to move from where you are to where you want to be.
1. Find a Realtor- What makes a good realtor? Essentially one who follows the rules, regulations, laws and procedures is definitely someone you want on your side. Furthermore a realtor who listens to your needs, is genuine and clicks with you is certainly someone you want on your team. Choose the realtor who has all of these characteristics combined.
2. Get Pre-Approved - One is wise to budget before one makes a purchase. When one is making a larger purchase, a purchase that can change the course of one’s life it is even more important that one receives good financial advice. Get pre-approved. There are a number of plans out there that give you options for 1% down-payment, 2% down-payment and even 0% down-payment. The days of 20% down are numbered. Shop around. Ask for all possible options before you even get your credit run please.
3. Begin looking – So now you have your trusted realtor such as myself. Now you also have the amount for which you have been pre-approved. Start looking. I advise my clients to start looking within their budget and preferred location.
