What's Your Price Range? I don't Know...Just Show Me What You Have!
Realtors...Don't you just love it when you ask the question of a buyer , "What's your price range"?...and the answer is less than helpful like; "I don't know...Just show me what you have"! As real estate agents we usually can and must get an accurate answer to that question. Usually our next question to the buyer is; "Have you been pre-approved"? "Not yet", "I know what I can afford", "I'm just looking" come the answers.
Buyers: The most expensive home in the Northern Alabama Multiple Listing service is a 13,450 square foot, 8 bedroom 12 bath, Gated Estate in Harvest Alabama priced at $3,500,000. The least expensive home is a 2,128 square foot,
2 bedroom, 2 bath bungalow in Gadsden Alabama priced at $7,500. There are 8,739 other homes between these two extremes. I've been told that I'm pretty good at what I do, but I'm just not good enough to pick what you can afford without a pre-approval letter. I'm willing to show you a few homes at our first meeting, but you need to speak with a lender and get a pre-approval letter, otherwise you may well be wasting the sellers time, my time and yours as well.
If you need the service of a great mortgage professional I'd be glad to suggest one or two from the very short list of vendors that I like to work with. I have no financial relationship with any of the real estate vendors that I associate with...they're very knowledgeable and simply good at what they do and put the clients interest first...that's you! Give me a call or send an email and I'll get your home buying process off to a great start.
If you need a knowledgeable real estate professional in Madison or Huntsville Alabama area, why don't you let me Google that for you! I also know outstanding agents in all states and Canada should you need help relocating to a new area.
