Before we do anything, we need to get you approved. This tells you and us what our true options are. Getting excited about homes that are out of your budget doesn't do anyone any good. More importantly, in this market, we need to eliminate the need for as many contingencies as possible. The financing contingency is one of those.
The home search process can be overwhelming. Using google maps ( and even Zoom), we can narrow the areas down based on your wants and needs and simplify the process. We then take a deeper dive into those that match the closest to what you're looking for. We save time and aggravation. It's a win, win.
The housing market is tight. Inventory levels are at an all time low. So, when we do find the house that best fits your needs, we need to pounce. But more importantly, we need to pounce with the "perfect" offer. Crafting a winning offer takes experience and skill. Luckily for you, this where we shine. After crafting nearly 60,000 offers, we got this!
One thing we always advise our clients on, is to focus on payment, not price. Many of our clients say " We want to stay under $400,000". But if the purchase price is largely irrelevant. Why? Because if you're financing the purchase, you will do so over a 30 year term. Yet, the average homeowner will sell in the 7-10 years. So, you will never actually pay the full amount. Instead, the monthly amount needs to fit into your budget. If it does, that's what matters.
