Excellence in Real Estate
Don't buy the first house you see.If you like the first house you see, don't be tempted to make an offer right away. You should look at least a few other houses first so you can get an idea of the homes that are available in your price range.
Use a REALTOR(R).
As a buyer, it usually costs nothing to hire a real estate professional to help you find and purchase a home--your Realtor will likely get a portion of the commission the seller pays to his Realtor. Find a Realtor you are comfortable with and that you trust. Remember the more you communicate with your Realtor the easier it will be to find your dream home.
MortgagesI always recommend that you start thinking about your mortgage options as soon as you start thinking about buying. A lot of the time to obtain the mortgage you desire you will need a history of paper work and details. Contacting a Mortgage Broker will allow you to start the process and make the transaction go a lot smoother. Nothing comes from waiting till the last second.
