We encourage you to meet with your HomeBridge Mortgage Loan Originator before you look for a home. That way you will know what loan amount you can qualify for and you can make certain you are looking for homes in your price range. You don’t want to be disappointed by finding a home and then later realizing you can’t afford to buy it.
Next, make a list of the top five things that are most important to you in a home. Consider all aspects of your day-to-day life. For example, your list may include proximity to your work, price and monthly mortgage payment, number of bedrooms, neighborhood amenities and size of the yard.
Finally, choose a Realtor to help with your home search. Your Realtor will be an excellent source of knowledge on all aspects of the purchasing process. Let the Realtor take the lead in building a property base that fits your requirements. And, the key to a good relationship with your Realtor is communication. Be specific and let your Realtor know what you expect before, during and after the transaction.
Purchase a home is a dream of a lifetime for most anyone. It can be a stressful process, but by being organized and working as a team with your Realtor and HomeBridge Mortgage Loan Originator, the home buying processes will be a pleasurable experience for all.
