Once you are armed with a Letter of Prequalification from a financial institution you can begin your Home Search.
Home Search Steps
Step 1 – Choose a neighborhood. You can determine this by choosing schools, lifestyles, proximity to work, where friends and family live or anything else you can think of.
Step 2 – Sit down with a Realtor (they’re free to Home Buyers). Discuss number of bedrooms and bathrooms, yard and garage size and amenities you are interested in. Your Realtor will find homes meeting your criterea and make appointments for your to view them.
Step 3 – Never view more than three of four in one session or the homes will start to “run together”.
Step 4 – Review, with your Realtor, the likes and dislikes of the homes you viewed. At this point you can decide to make an offer on a home you’ve seen or continue viewing more homes.
