If you’re planning on buying a home, there are a few things you need to do in order to get results.
Get a full approval. Get your credit pulled before beginning your search. Get any disputes fixed and off your credit report. Tackle these things ahead of time. Be proactive.
Get a home inspection. This could cause headaches later. However, an inspector notices things you won’t be able to. Don’t underestimate the value of hiring an inspector ahead of time.
Ask for cover letters from agents. Before you hire an agent, get to know them.
Choose the right Realtor. Work with someone who understands the process fully. They should be available for you when you want to look at homes in person. You’ll likely face multiple offer situation. It’s important to work with someone that’s experienced and eager to work for you.
