Springtime home buying tips
The spring season is typically the busiest time of the year for real estate buying and selling activity. If you are planning to buy a home this spring, here are some tips to consider:
Get pre-approved, or at least pre-qualified, for a mortgage – This will help determine how much home you can afford and it will help evaluate your financial situation as it relates to buying a home. Furthermore, being pre-approved may give you an advantage since it provides confidence to sellers that the transaction will go through.
Make a list of your must-haves – Share the list with your Real Estate Agent so he or she can search for homes that meet your criteria.
Approach a bidding war with caution – One of the best ways to avoid a bidding war is to make a full price offer, or even offer slightly more than full price. Know your limit, though, and be careful not to overbid or offer too much for a home. If you do, you may have difficulty getting the home to appraise at that value.
