There are many factors to consider when purchasing a new home. Laying the groundwork is the most important part of the process.
1. Speak with a Lender and get a Pre-Qualification Letter
This is a critical first step. Not only do you need to know your budget limits, but when you find a home you like, you may lose out to another buyer while you are waiting for your lender to tell you if you qualify for the home. If you submit an offer without a pre-qualification letter from a lender, your offer probably won’t be considered by the seller.
2.Work with only one Realtor
If you work with more than one Realtor, you won’t have the kind of commitment and loyalty required to be successful in this market. Find a Realtor you are comfortable with and can trust and call them for any and all questions. If you call a Realtor listed on a sign, you might be hiring them to represent you without even knowing it.
3. Become an educated Buyer
Working with a Realtor focused on education will help you understand the process and the market. Because a home is such an important purchase, it is important to understand each step of the process. We do this every day and understand the process, but you don’t — and we never forget that. We take the time necessary to explain every step and every document.
4. Have a positive attitude
The Phoenix market can be a little frustrating at times. Homes sell quickly and often have more than one offer for the seller to consider. Working with a dedicated, communicative, and organized Realtor will help you successfully navigate the market and find the home you will be happy to call “Home.”
