To say that houses in today's real estate environment are "going quick" is a huge understatement. I’ve heard stories and have had clients who lost out on houses that have only been on the market for hours. Speak with any realtor and they will surely tell you the same thing. The stories they could tell are probably crazier than what I even know about. The wild west of house sales is coupled with near bottom interest rates to create a hurricane of real estate frenzy. My advice to all my clients is to BE PREPARED.
Get pre approved with a lender that you trust. Buying a house is a huge financial decision. You need to make sure you are being taken care of and working with people that have your best interests in mind. Which is why when you work with me, you get treated like family. I work hard to make sure you understand your options and know what you are getting into. Other lenders will simply throw you a pre approval letter and you’ll never hear from them again. I offer to help guide my clients by providing personalized numbers for each house they go and see. This way, there won’t be any surprises before they make an offer on the house. I hate surprises, which is why I set clear expectations for the clients I work with and what they can expect from me as we move through the process. No surprises equals a win for everyone.
If you are thinking of buying soon, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am accessible via phone call, text, email, or social media. I look forward to hearing from you.
