Buying a home is no small matter. Besides being the largest financial transaction you may ever undertake, it’s probably also the most complex. As a buyer, you will want to choose a real estate professional who is not only experienced and attentive but with whom you will feel comfortable. Here are the steps to get started:
GET PRE-APPROVED WITH A BANK OR LENDER
There are many reasons why you should get pre-approved. The most important reason is that you will get an accurate idea of how much home you can afford. A pre-approval letter also helps you “prove” to sellers that you’re a credible buyer and will enable you to act fast when you find the home you want to buy.
