These simple tips will help you find and purchase the home of your dreams more quickly and efficiently.
Know what you want
The last thing you need is to close a deal and realize you bought a house you don't want. Ask yourself what you're looking for in a home, before you shop. Think about size, commute time and necessary repairs.
Be a smart consumer
Learn the financing basics. Know how to shop for a home loan that's right for you.
This takes very little time and lets you know the price range that fits your lifestyle.
Keep your debt load to a minimum
Don't make major purchases or incur any additional debt until after your purchase. Pay down credit cards and don't apply for new ones. Remember, financial institutions evaluate your financial situation on your gross monthly income. Your total monthly house costs should not exceed 28 percent of your gross monthly income.
Be prepared to view new properties quickly
Sometimes homes sell quickly, so be ready to make fast decisions. Be accessible to change the terms.
Have instant access to your agent
Instant communication can mean the difference in purchasing the property of your choice.
