Here are some quick tips for any residential home buyer in SW Florida to help with a smooth real estate transaction
- BE PREPARED
Are you really ready to buy? Timing and financing are key to home buys right now. Be prepared to move when a desirable home comes onto the market.
- KNOW YOUR BUDGET
The pre-qualification will also help determine your budget. This helps maximize your time with me so that we don’t look at properties outside the budget or negotiating reason.
- GET PRE-QUALIFIED
Work with a local mortgage broker early in the process so that you are ready to make and offer and purchase when the opportunity arises. Telling the seller that you are pre-qualified can help when encountering bidding wars.
- LEARN THE NEIGHBORHOODS
Take time driving around the neighborhoods within your desired location. We can concentrate on your top five neighborhoods and I can begin grassroots marketing when needed to help you secure your number one location. Also, get to know service providers and schools assigned to that neighborhood.
