If it's your goal to buy a home in 2016, there are two important steps to begin your home search: meeting with a lender and meeting with a Realtor.

A lender will provide you with a pre-approval, which lets you know your purchasing power. Purchasing power has a strong influence on your home search, as it dictates location, size, and finishing touches.

The lender will look at your credit score and debt-to-income ratio, which is the current amount you owe per month compared to your monthly income. Lenders look at this to see if you can afford monthly mortgage payments. If you don't know any lenders, we can put you in touch with one of our preferred lenders.

At the buyer consultation, the Realtor will ask you some questions. We tailor your home search according to your wants and needs. We will help educate you on the process and what to expect along the way, from making your offer to the closing process.

We think it's important for buyers to have a strong foundation to build on.
Then, when we do find the perfect home, we can submit your offer right away.

If you have any questions for us, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
