When purchasing a property, you are faced with a multitude of decisions.  Locating the perfect property is not always an easy task, but I am here to help you.

While at your side each step of the way, I will help to make the process less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own, I will help you prepare so that Sellers perceive you as a preferred Buyer, and my goal is to assist you and help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your ctiteria and specifications. .

I am familiar with the current properties on the market, and I know neighborhood and area values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

Your First Step to property buying

Your first step to buying a property is to first ask yourself why you want to buy: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up? Next, list what kind of property you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."

Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.

If buying a residence for instance, think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.

Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional and will give you names of professionals that have excellent reputation and track records for successfully acquiring loan approvals for his/her clients.

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system, and the (CLS) commercial MLS system, to locate them.
