Hello Friends!
Don't let this COLD winter blast fool you! It's a HOT
time to start preparing for your new home. Whether buying OR listing, we are here for you. As a matter of fact, here are a some GREAT tips to get you started if you are thinking about buying. It's our personal 'Buyer's Checklist' created with YOU in mind!

Below are the FIRST 2 steps:

Before beginning your home search:

  • Find a bank / lender you would like to work with. ( We also can recommend trusted lenders).
  • Discuss your down payment options with your lender; ensure you have “seasoned” money, if needed.
  • Discuss closing costs with your lender- can you cover closing costs? Do you need to ask the seller to contribute partial or full funds for closing costs? You’ll need to know this to write an offer.
  • Discuss earnest money with your lender – Do you need a cashier’s check? Or can you write a personal check for the earnest money amount? (Each sale is unique and this amount may differ.)
  • Obtain a pre-approval letter from your lender (FHA, VA, USDA, conventional, cash)
