What You Can Do to Keep Your Dream of Home ownership Moving Forward?

By
Mortgage and Lending with FHA, VA, Jumbo, Downpayment Assistance, Conv. NMLS #276329

 Here are four things you can do right now to keep your home search on track during these times.

 

1. Get Pre-approved. Pre-approval for a mortgage will give you a better understanding of what you can afford.  It shows you're a serious buyer.  Gather the necessary documents like your income verification, credit history, and asset documentation while you're spending some time at home and reach out to your Lender of choice for assistance.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Virtually Connect with an Agent. Today, more than ever, it's important to start working with a trusted real estate advisor, so you're ready to move quickly when it's time. Whether you chat by phone or video, a real estate professional can help you understand how to navigate the changing dynamic of today's market without bringing your plans to a standstill.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Do Your Research. This is a great time to investigate down payment assistance programs in your area, especially if you think you might benefit from a low down payment option when you make your home purchase.  Consult with your Lender, they will be a good source for information.

 

 

 

 4. View Listings Online. Your Real Estate Advisor can send you listings in the areas and price range you desire.  You may not be able to check out homes for sale in person right now, but you can still look online for what's available in your area. Use virtual tours and listings to take note of your favorite must-haves and nice-to-haves in a potential home.
