- First, determine your housing needs. A buyer’s agent will have many questions for your regarding what you are looking for in a home. It is good practice to have some ready answers for these questions. This will help our agents to serve you better and more efficiently.
- Second, secure the finances. It is best practice to get a pre-qualification letter from a lending company. Ask your agent for a mortgage checklist: a list of items you will need to bring with you to qualify for financing. Check out our mortgage calculator for an estimate of what your payments will be.
- Do not be afraid to make an offer on a home you think may fit your needs. Making an offer is a means of expressing interest to a seller and does not bind you into a home purchase.
- Be aware of closing costs. There are several costs associated with closing on a property. These costs are negotiated between the buyer and the seller at the time of closing. Your agent will help you negotiate these costs with the seller.
