Tips for Buying a Home
  1. Get pre-qualified for a loan. This shows you’re serious and ensures your transaction processes quickly.
  2. Make a good offer. Remember that your offer may not be the only one presented to the seller.
  3. Know that there’s no right time to buy. If you find the perfect home or land now, don’t risk losing it because you’re trying to guess where the housing market and interest rates are going.
  4. Accept that no house is ever perfect. If it’s the right location, you will have to make compromises on other things. Don’t let a yard, color on the walls in the living room throw you off. Make a list of your top priorities and focus in on those things. Let the minor ones go.

5.    Work with a local, knowledgeable real estate expert.
