Meet with your HomeBridge Mortgage Loan Originator prior to looking for a home.
You need to determine what loan amount you can qualify for to 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 realize that you can’t afford to buy it!
Make a list of the top five things that are most important to you about your home. Consider all aspects of your day-to-day life. For example, your list may include location to your work, price and monthly mortgage payment, number of bedrooms, neighborhood amenities and size of yard.
Choose a Real Estate Agent to help with you home search. Your Agent will be an excellent source of knowledge on all aspects of the purchasing process. Let the Agent take the lead in building a property base that fits your requirements. And, the key to a good relationship with your Agent is communication. Be specific and let your Agent know what you expect before, during and after the transaction.
Purchasing 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 Real Estate Agent and HomeBridge Mortgage Loan Originator, the home buying processes will be a pleasurable experience for all.
