It's a new year! Like many people, you may have "buy a house" on your New Year's Resolution list. You wrote it down, but now what? Buying a home is painless and FUN! The best thing you can do right now is to connect with a realtor. A realtor is a real estate professional who partners with buyers, sellers, renters, builders, lenders, and a plethora of other professionals to broker real estate transactions. Think of us as a flight attendant. We're here to tend to your needs, answer your questions, and help guide you to safely on the "run way" to a new home. Partnering with a realtor is free . Yep- that's right! We work for free! How do we get paid, you ask? We partner with the seller's agent and split commissions that way. That being said, you have absolutely nothing to lose by partnering with a realtor, and everything to gain.
So you find a realtor. Now what? Here are 8 easy steps to owning a home, adapted from one of my lending partners, Jami DelValle, with GSF Mortgage.
1. Check your credit report and score 2. Determine what you can afford 3. Get pre-approved for a loan 4. Find the perfect home 5. Make an offer on a home 6. Determine the right loan program 7. Close on your home 8. Move in!
If you'd like to take the first step towards home ownership, please consider choosing me as your real estate partner. If you're interested in learning what you can afford and/or to begin the pre-approval process, please contact Jami at(985) firstname.lastname@example.org.
