Here in sunny and now finally warm Minnesota we have had a fabulous past few days with record breaking warm termperatures.
Note to sellers:
Sellers need to take advantage of this break in the weather and spruce up the outside of the home. Add some mulch, pressure wash the exterior, clean the windows-replacing any broken glass, wash down the doors and scrape any chipping peeling paint and paint if needed.
It’s been sunny for a few days and many of the trees and flowers are blooming. This means an early start on selling houses too.
Note for buyers:
Exciting times for buyers now!
Mortgage applications are up 4% over the last 4 weeks and the search for property is on. It is crucial to get a pre-approval BEFORE you go out and look at homes.
You will need to know how much you can spend and what type of loan you qualify for.
This will determine the homes you should tour.
Call or email me if you need a lender recommendation. I have several that know their stuff and are great to work with.
If you go to open houses, please be loyal to your REALTOR®. Let the attending agent know that you are working with someone and give them your agent’s card.
Call your Realtor® instead of the listing agent if you see a house you want info on. We research the properties and then arrange a showing for you.
Our job is to see you through a trouble-free home buying process to a successful closing.
The buyer does not pay for a REALTOR®’s services on MLS listed properties here, the seller pays both commissions at closing.
This is an amount that was agreed upon with the seller’s REALTOR® when they listed their property for sale.
Why wouldn’t you want free representation to get through the offer, contract, inspections, appraisals, repairs, paperwork, scheduling and closing?
Call, text or email me if you need to get started.
I’m happy to help.
