A mistake I see people make is waiting until they think they are all ready to buy to reach out to us. We then find out from the lender that they need 6 more months to place themselves in a buying position. It’s never a good situation to be in, and a real eye-opener for buyers. Oftentimes sellers make the same mistake. Some wait until the last minute and find out preparations they need to make are not ready or sometimes they do things that are not even necessary for their situation!
That’s where a good agent comes in. By reaching out early, we can help prepare buyers and sellers for what comes next. We make sure they are all set so they can take action when the time is right for them to make their move!
We’ve laid out these 6 essential tips to give you a head start on your buying and selling planning.
1- Reach out!
Find an agent that you are comfortable with personally and professionally and make the call! We are here to help and will give suggestions on what you can do today to position yourself when the time is right. No two situations are the same, we make a plan tailored for YOU!
2- Educate as much as you can
Try to learn as much about the market as possible. This can get complicated, but we’re here with expert advice.We want you to feel as comfortable and informed with what to expect as possible. That’s why we help you evaluate timing and give you any information we can to help you make the best decision.
3- Know the numbers
Understanding the full cost of homeownership is essential so you know exactly what to plan for. Down payment, closing cost and reserves for repairs just to name a few. There are many great programs out there that can get you into a home with very little out of pocket, but we want to be sure you have enough in reserves so there isn’t added stress if something arises. We want to give you all the info we can to help you be prepared for being a homeowner.
