Buying a home can be like navigating a jungle. We’re happy to lead your safari! With the right guidance, the home buying process becomes much easier. The Barnes Team aims for a stress-free experience every time. But where to start? The pre-approval process.
Getting pre-approved is the first step in the home buying process.
Let’s say you’re scoping the internet for potential houses you’d like to view. It’s great to get an idea of what’s out there. However, to move forward you truly need to be financially pre-approved and know the dollar amount you’re able to get a loan for and how much cash you have to put down. Having proof on paper of what you can spend is what will get you the home you want. Let’s say you go to view a home and you fall in love. It’s just what you want with the yard you dreamed of and a fantastic kitchen. The housing market can move fast and be competitive and you want to be ready when opportunity arises. Being pre-approved will allow you to take the next step in buying that home without wasting any time.
Buying with cash? You’ll need to have proof for that too. If you don’t, it’s likely someone could put a bid in that has the necessary paperwork and get the home you want, even if your bid is higher.
The last thing you want is to find the perfect home in an area that fits your lifestyle.. and not be equipped with what you need to make it yours. Contact us today and we can get you headed in the right direction to get pre-approved! Being well informed will make the home buying process much less intimidating.
