salem oregon real estate: Salem Oregon Real Estate-Buyers-5 Important Steps For Buying Your Home - 03/27/10 03:50 PM
TIPS FOR BUYING YOUR HOME FROM YOUR SALEM OREGON REAL ESTATE AGENT

1.  Get pre-approved for your loan.

If possible, get "pre-approved" for a loan in the amount you're willing to borrow.

With this pre-approval, you're in a stronger position to buy a home when you're ready - rather than finding your dream home, only to lose it to another buyer because you were waiting on the approval.
2.  Find a great real estate consultant.
