10 Ways to Prepare to Buy a Home
- Start a project notebook. Become an expert in the properties in your price range in the community and the neighborhood that interests you.
- Line up your team. You’ll need a home inspector, attorney, and lender.
- Be wary of real estate brokers. Sellers’ brokers represent sellers’ interests – not yours. Remember, “Just because someone asks, doesn’t mean you have to answer.”
- Get to know the community. Go to open houses, subscribe to a month of local newspapers, check out the town center, shopping area, schools, and drive-time to work.
- Research home prices. Go online and check out tax assessments, recent sales prices, and current sellers’ purchase prices.
- Get your finances in order. Request a copy of your credit report and check for accuracy. Also save your cancelled rent checks. Get “pre-qualified” for a mortgage loan.
- Get a mortgage application. All applications ask for the same information, so any application will do. Fill it out a form so that you will have all information accessible and be ready to apply.
- Shop for a mortgage. Ask your friends, call lenders directly and ask for details about rates, points and closing costs.
- Be confident. It’s not “rocket science.” Know what price is right and you will find something you like and can afford.
- Don’t fall in love with any one property or you’ll never be able to negotiate the price.
