First Steps After You Find A Home You Love
You’ve been checking the listings every day (okay, okay...multiple times a day), and you think you’ve found the one! The yard, the floor plan, the kitchen, the master bath...even the price is everything you’re looking for.
Your heart is pounding and you’re sharing the listing with everyone in your close circle. They love it, too. Yesss!
So...now what? What do you do when a listing drops that checks every box on your wish list?
Don’t worry! I’ve got the answer:
• Call your agent and ask for a showing as soon as possible. Don’t have an agent? Give me a shout!
• Get paperwork-ready. After you call your agent, your next call should be to your bank or mortgage lender. Ask about getting pre-approved for a loan so you’ll be ready should you decide to make an offer.
• Do your research. Your agent will help, but you can get a jumpstart by searching property records and databases—and by talking with friends or acquaintances who live nearby.
In this market, minutes count so if you see something you love, don’t hesitate to request a showing. After you see the home in person you’ll have the info you need to confidently make an offer OR confidently pass and wait to see what hits the market later.
It is a fast-paced market, but there’s no need to feel rushed or pressured into anything before you’re 100% ready.
