Things To Know Before Buying A House

Todays Date: August 19, 2017

No one but you is going to make sure you are fully prepared for your adventure in home buying. Your home will be the biggest single purchase of your life (this is certainly true for the vast majority of people reading this anyway).You don’t learn at school or college how to buy a house, there is no “home buying 101” course that you have to study before you go looking.

As long as you have already spoken to your bank,credit union or mortgage company and done some sort of liason with them you should have no trouble getting a preapproval letter reasonably quickly. You can still start looking at houses before you have your letter, but once you have it and the time comes to make an offer the seller will take you a lot more seriously.

A pre-approval letter is given to you by your bank or mortgage lender to show that they have done preliminary checks and feel that in principle they can lend you $xxx,xxxx. It doesn’t mean that the loan is a sure thing, the lender will still want to look at the house, check your details more thoroughly and look at your deposit money.

While a letter of pre-approval is not a sure thing, having one will give you the ability to elbow anyone without one out of the way if you get into a situation where there are multiple interested parties all hoping to buy the same house. This may sound like a small benefit to have but in some negotiations that is all you need to win the home of your dreams.

You should also look into the services of a real estate agent. Representation is very important in a real estate contract process. You want someone on your side will do a lot of legwork for you and explain the process as you go along. Remember real estate guidelines and regulations are different from area to area. Laws change from year to year so it is important to have an experienced real estate agent on your side who will be able to explain the ins and outs of the contract. Ask friends and family for recommendations if they have worked with a real estate agent in the past.
